Our Al-Ain v Ajman predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (plus the best game odds).
Al-Ain are hoping to win again after their last result, the 2-3 Arabian Gulf League success against Al-Bataeh.
For Al-Ain, the scorers were Kodjo Fo-Doh Laba (27', 87') and Andriy Yarmolenko (35'). Lourency (81') was the scorer for Al-Bataeh.
Al-Ain have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, hitting the target in one hundred percent of their last 6 matches.
They have claimed a sum of 11 during that time and have conceded a total of 10. We will have to find out if that trend will be continued on into this next match.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai in Arabian Gulf League action, Ajman will be hoping to turn things around here.
The only scorer from Ajman was Firas Ben Larbi (38'). Federico Cartabia (45') and Guilherme Bala (74') scored for Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai.
Over the course of their previous 6 clashes, Ajman have helped themselves to a tally of 7 goals. Ajman have also managed to score in every single one of those games. Over that period, they have seen 6 goals go against them.
Head to head
Looking at their past head to head meetings stretching back to 15/12/2019 tells us that these encounters have not been kind to Ajman. They have not managed to get any victories at all whereas Al-Ain have managed to find a way, finishing as winners in 67 per cent of those ties.
A sum of 16 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 13 for Al Zaeem and 3 netted by The Oranges. That’s an average goals per game of 2.67.
The last league meeting featuring these sides was Arabian Gulf League match day 1 on 02/09/2022 which ended up with the score at Ajman 1-1 Al-Ain.
Team News: Al-Ain
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the lone fitness concern for the Al-Ain boss Pedro Emanuel to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust squad. 7 (Al-Ain FC) will miss out.
Team News: Ajman
Out of a mainly full-strength squad, there is only the sole fitness issue for the Ajman boss Ayman Al Ramadi to contend with. 6 (Ajman Club) misses out for this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Ajman would be disappointed if they were not to score against this Al-Ain side, although it probably won’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We are anticipating a very close game with a 2-1 victory for Al-Ain when all is said and done. There looks to be little in this one.
