Tom Rojic has been out of the game by giving a blow to the Australian team.
This means former Huddersfield star Aaron Mooy is likely to start alongside Blackpool’s Kenny Dougal in midfield.
Ahead, Graham Arnold will have to choose between sticking with Melbourne Victory’s Nicolas D’Agostino or starting with Melbourne City’s Jamie McLaren.
United Arab Emirates manager Rodolfo Arruberena has no such dilemma and the country’s all-time record scorer Ali Mbhakout is almost certain to start from the front.
Aisa Khalid recently removed 69-cap Ali Khasif from goal and things are expected to remain the same for the play-offs.
