Team News: Al-Ain
Regarding absentees, there’s just one fitness concern for the Al-Ain gaffer to contend with from a near full-strength group of players. 3 (Al-Ain FC) is out of contention.
Team News: Ajman
Thanks to a mainly available group of players, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the Ajman manager Ayman Al Ramadi to contend with. 11 (Ajman Club) won’t be playing here.
In our view, Al-Ain can and should see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
However, Ajman are also probably going to find it difficult to find the back of the net although we do reckon that they could well end up scoring here as well.
We’re therefore expecting to see a decent 3-1 winning score for Al-Ain when all’s said and done.
