2019 AFC Asian Cup qualifiers: 3rd round seeding simulations

The draw for the 3rd round will take place on 18 January 2017. This has been announced by Tajik FA and Kyrgyz FA. This is all very nice.

Regarding the seeding criteria, I only have a comment on Facebook (by the Tajikistan FA), stating FIFA ranking will be used. Even so, I have to assume it will be the January 2017 FIFA ranking.



The usual 10000 simulations - based on the current list of fixtures. Yes, I've included the KO stages of the AFF Championship.

Teams are sorted on average pot over the 10000 sims.

Pot 1: Jordan, Bahrain, Oman, Kyrgyzstan, Philippines, Korea DPR
