India vs Qatar: All time head-to-head record 2026 FIFA WORLD CUP QUALIFIERS

India have never defeated Qatar.

India is scheduled to face Qatar in their upcoming match in the 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Round 2. This highly anticipated event will take place at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on November 21, 2023.

Igor Stimac’s side will be playing their first home match in the ongoing campaign. Both teams will take the field with the support of their victories in their respective first matches of the second round qualifiers. India secured a 1-0 victory over Kuwait, while Qatar achieved a dominant win against Afghanistan with an 8-1 scoreline.

India are currently positioned at 102 in the FIFA rankings, whereas Qatar, the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, occupy the 61st spot. Despite the advantage of playing on home turf and receiving strong support from the crowd, India may face a formidable challenge from Qatar, who will not hesitate to disappoint the fans in the stands.

India vs Qatar: Head-to-Head

The Indian team is yet to find a win against Qatar. They have faced Qatar thrice before this upcoming match but have never won a single match. Qatar has won two matches while India managed to draw a game (2019). 

In their previous encounter, which took place in 2021 during the World Cup Qualification, Qatar emerged victorious with a narrow 1-0 scoreline against their Indian counterparts. The only goal of the match was expertly scored by Abdelaziz Hatem.
