Despite the number of teams to play in the finals in 2022 still being up for a vote at the next FIFA meeting, (June 5th), the draw has been made for the first round of Asian Qualification, to be played on June 6th and 11th.

The first two rounds of Asian Qualification are also used in qualification for the 2023 Asian Cup. No decision has yet been reached as to the venue of the latter competition, with the two bidders being China and South Korea.

Timor Leste are banned from Asian Cup 2023 for their ineligible players in the last World/Asian Cup qualifications, but FIFA did not extend the ban to the World Cup. They are therefore included in the draw

Qatar need to qualify for the next Asian Cup, so they will be in the second round draw, as will China and South Korea (for World Cup qualification) while one will host the Asian Cup

The draw is
Mongolia v Brunei
Macau v Sri Lanka
Laos v Bangladesh
Malaysia v Timor Leste
Cambodia v Pakistan and
Bhutan v Guam

The draw is seeded, with the higher seeded teams shown first (so I assume home in the first leg). Guam are the team most likely to beat the seeding.
