Saudi Arabia faces off against Bahrain in the final of the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup on Sunday at al-Duhail Stadium in the Qatari capital Doha.

Saudi Arabia defeated Qatar 1-0 in the semi-final last week, while Bahrain defeated Iraq on penalties.

The Saudi Arabian team has a distinguished record in its confrontations against the Bahraini national team, as they have met in 35 games in all official and friendly competitions. Saudi Arabia has won 19 matches, lost seven times and tied in nine other occasions against Bahrain.

The two teams have never met each other in the final of the Arabian Gulf tournament.
