Uzbekistan host Sri Lanka at the Markaziy Stadium in Namangan for a clash in Group C of the 2023 Asia Cup qualifiers.

The White Wolves are the highest-ranked side in the group, which also features Thailand and the Maldives, and are the favorites to secure a direct passage into the finals.

Srečko Katanec’s side have been shaping up well for their qualifying campaign, winning all three of their games in 2022 thus far.

They started off the year with a 3-0 demolition of South Sudan, followed by a 3-1 defeat of Kyrgyzstan and a 4-2 drubbing of Uganda in the Navruz Cup.

At 205th, Sri Lanka are one of the 10 lowest ranked teams in the world and haven’t won a major international fixture since a 2-0 defeat of Macau in a World Cup qualifying match in June 2019.
