January 29, 2019 -- La Copa Asiática AFC en los Emiratos Árabes Unidos entra en su etapa semifinal, en que los cuatro equipos restantes compiten por ser coronados campeones continentales .

Following the first semi-final between Iran and Japan, the second contest features host nation United Arab Emirates against Qatar, at the Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, with both teams aiming to lift the Asian Cup for the first time.

Qatar, in their best ever performance at the Asian Cup, defeated Iraq in the Last 16 and dispatched competition favourites South Korea in the quarter-finals. Tournament top goalscorer Almoez Ali has netted seven of their 12 goals to date.

The UAE are aiming to reach their first final since 1996, where they suffered a penalty shoot-out heartbreak to Saudi Arabia. After a slow start, with two draws in the group stages, a close-fought victory over Australia in the quarter-final kept their title ambitions on home soil alive.

The final will be held at the Zayed Sports City Stadium, in Abu Dhabi, on February 1, 2019.
