Team News: Al-Shabab
Due to a fully injury-free squad ready to go, the Al-Shabab manager does not have any fitness concerns to report coming into this match.
We’re of the view that Al-Shabab should have enough to break down this Al-Ahli Saudi outfit, but it probably won’t quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re going for a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 win for Al-Ahli Saudi at the end of this one. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
