Tomorrow Night ANZ Stadium will play host to the do or die world cup play-off between Australia and Syria, with one team's road to Russia coming to an end.

The Socceroos go in with a slight advantage playing in front of a home crowd and with a first leg away goal, meaning they have to keep Syria scoreless or win to go through to the final round of qualifying.

Australia will have to capitalize on their dominance in possession that have been seen in their last two qualifiers and be more clinical in front of goal.

Against Thailand, Australia had 45 shots on goal, but only managed to score two goals in what could have been their last qualifying game.

Key players such as James Troisi and Tim Cahill were rested in the 1-1 first leg draw, with Tomas Rogic set to start despite making a cameo appearance in the 83rd minute last week.

Omar Al-Soma will have to back up an impressive performance in the first leg if Syria are a chance to go through. The tall Syrian striker proved to be a handful for the Australian defence.

Fresh legs will be the key for both teams after humid conditions proved to be tiring in Malaysia. Mardek Mardkian is someone who is expected to start after coming on as a second half substitute causing trouble for the tiring Australian side.

The winner of the game will go onto to play a final qualifying round against either the USA, Panama or Honduras with the likeliest opponent being Panama who could edge out Honduras on goal difference.

The game Kicks-off Tuesday 10th October at 8pm in Sydney.
