If you're heading over to the UAE v Australia match, just remember that it's not in Dubai or Abu Dhabi.

The AFC Asian Cup 2019 match is taking place at 8pm on Friday January 25 in Al Ain's Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium.

It's the last quarter final of the tournament, which started with 24 teams involved for the first time.

Other sides hoping to book a spot are Vitenam, China, South Korea, Qatar, Iran and Japan.

So far the home side haven't hit top gear in the tournament, the biggest in the history if the games, but they'll need to be firing on all cyclinders against the Aussies.

All eyes will be on frontman Ali Mabkhout and captain Ismail Matar as they try to outwit the likes of Tom Rogic and Mat Ryan on the Australia team.

The Socceroos will be hoping for the perfect start to Australia Day on Saturday by beating Alberto Zacheronni's side.

Tickets for the games start at Dhs50, but if you don't want to go to the match itself, you could always check out one of the fan zones, the one at A'l Bahar has loads going on.
From Dhs50. Fri Jan 25 8pm. Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium, Al Ain, www.ticketmaster.ae.
