Meanwhile, the visitors were beaten by the United Arab Emirates in their last qualifying match, so they will be desperate to return to winning ways.

Nepal overcame Laos 2-1 on aggregate to reach the second round of Asian qualifying, but the nation will be fully aware that their campaign is likely to end at this stage.

They have never qualified for an Asian Cup, so it is no surprise that they have never come close to reaching the World Cup either since playing their first official international match against China in 1972.

Vincenzo Annese’s side lost 4-0 away to UAE in their opening qualifier in November, before they were beaten 2-0 at home against Yemen last time out.

Meanwhile, Bahrain are heading into these fixtures off the back of reaching the last 16 at the Asian Cup in January, Despite topping a group for the first time in their history at an Asian Cup, they parted ways with their head coach Juan Antonio Pizzi a few days after losing to Japan.

Dragan Talajic, who had served as Bahrain’s technical director since 2022, has taken Pizzi’s place, with the former Al Ittihad boss’ attention now firmly fixed on helping the team reach the World Cup for the first time in their history, having come within one playoff match of doing so when losing to Trinidad and Tobago in 2006 and New Zealand in 2010.

Bahrain are the 12th-highest ranked nation in Asia, and comfortably the second-highest in Group H, so they should be reaching the final stage of qualifying at the very least.

Nepal Team News

Having failed to score in their opening two matches, Nepal’s hopes of doing so against Bahrain will larglely rest on Anjan Bista’s shoulders, with the 25-year-old his nation’s joint-record goalscorer.

Captain Kiran Chemjong will be left one short of reaching 100 caps should he start in goal against Bahrain in both games as expected.

Bahrain Team News

Bahrain have four players who are in double figures in terms of goals scored for their country, while captain Mohamed Husain is the nation’s record cap holder on 161 and counting.

As the only player competing in Europe domestically, Abdulla Yusuf Helal is perhaps the star of Talajic’s squad, having played for Slavia Prague before moving to Mlada Boleslav last year.
