Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Al-Kharaitiyat v Al-Ahli are shown on this page - as well as up-to-date odds.
Al-Kharaitiyat will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 3-0 Stars League victory versus Umm Salal.
It’s not been often in recent games that Al-Kharaitiyat have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that The Thunders have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 11 goals during that time.
Heading into this fixture, Al-Kharaitiyat have not emerged victorious against Al-Ahli in their last 4 league games.
Al-Ahli go into this encounter following a 1-3 Stars League win with the defeat of Al-Gharafa in their most recent fixture.
Nebojša Jovović's Al-Ahli have fired home a total of 6 times in the course of their latest 6 matches. The total of goals that they have conceded during those same clashes adds up to 9.
Head to head
Inspecting their prior head-to-head clashes dating back to 01/04/2017 shows us that Al-Kharaitiyat have won 2 of these games and Al-Ahli 4, with the tally of draws being 0.
A total of 18 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 8 for The Thunders and 10 belonging to Al Ameed. That is an average goals per game value of 3.

Team News: Al-Ahli
Owing to a completely healthy squad available to choose from, Al-Ahli boss Nebojša Jovović has no fitness worries at all ahead of this clash.
We’re of the view that Al-Kharaitiyat will need to push hard to find the net against this Al-Ahli outfit who we think might score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We therefore see a very even contest with a 0-1 winning margin for Al-Ahli at the end of the 90.
Let’s see how this one goes.
