The Saudi team remains the strongest during the tournament at the defensive level, as it managed to keep a clean sheet in 5 consecutive matches.
On the other hand, Uzbekistan conceded 3 goals, including one in the group stage match against Iran, and two goals in the match against Iraq in the quarter-finals.
The final match will also witness a race of another kind, where there are currently 3 players at the top of the scorers' list, namely the Japanese Yuito Suzuki, the Saudi Ayman Yahya and the Uzbek Gasurbek Jalaldinov, with 3 goals each.
