2022 FIFA World Cup Asian qualifier

The World Cup Qualification Asia Predictions are what millions of Asian football fans are looking for whenever a World Cup season comes. We are going to provide you with fundamental knowledge about this qualifier in our article and there are also many useful tips on our website too.

 

The Asian portion of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification serves as a qualifier for national teams that are part of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which is held in Qatar. Apart from Qatar (who qualified automatically as hosts), the AFC has 4.5 slots in the final tournament (4 direct slots and 1 inter-confederation play-off slot).

Format

The qualification goes as follow:

  • First Round: 12 teams (ranked 35-46) played home-and-away over two legs. The six winners will advance to the second round
  • Second Round: 40 teams (ranked 1-34 and the six first-round winners) were divided into eight groups of five teams to play home-and-away in a round-robin system. The eight group winners and the four best group runner-ups advance to the third round of FIFA World Cup qualification as well as able to qualify for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup finals. In case Qatar finish as group winners or one of the best four runners-up, the fifth-best runners-up will take their place in the third round.
  • Third Round: The two third-placed teams from the third round will play home and away over two legs. The winner will advance to the inter-confederation play-offs
