Vietnam progress to round of 16 thanks to disciplinary record

Vietnam progressed to the Asian Cup’s last 16 thanks to their lower tally of yellow cards than Lebanon who beat North Korea 4-1 in the final group stage match.
 
Before the match between Lebanon and North Korea, Vietnam and Lebanon were level on points (three points) and goal difference (-1) in the ranking of the best third-placed teams. Vietnam received two yellow cards fewer than Lebanon, which meant Lebanon had to exist the Asian Cup 2019.
