The Stars League meeting at Hamad bin Khalifa Stadium on Wednesday will see hosts Al-Ahli play opponents Al-Khor.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Al-Ahli v Al-Khor are shown below (inc. the best betting odds).
Al-Ahli will be looking for an improved result here following a 1-0 Stars League defeat in their last game at the hands of Al-Arabi.
Matches featuring Al-Ahli have often been entertaining encounters of late with a lot of goalmouth action expected. Over their past six games alone, a grand total of 22 goals have been scored for both teams combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game) with 8 of those coming from Al Ameed. We will have to see if that trend will end up being sustained in this game.
Their past results show that Al-Ahli:
- are unbeaten in the league by Al-Khor in their previous 6 matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.
Since a loss in their previous game against Umm Salal in Stars League action, Al-Khor will be aiming to make amends here.
The trend of at least one team drawing a blank in games featuring Al-Khor has become noticeable of late. Looking at their last six meetings shows that it has happened 5 times. During these clashes, their opponents have hit a goal aggregate of 14 and El Forsan have scored 2.
Their past results show that Al-Khor:
- haven't won against Al-Ahli when they've played them away from home in the last 3 matches in the league.
- remain undefeated by Al-Ahli in games played away from home for the previous 4 league matches. Away fans have certainly had plenty to cheer about.
- are without an away win for the past 23 league games. They clearly need to do something about it.

Checking on their most recent head to head clashes stretching back to 18/01/2018 shows us that Al-Ahli have won 3 of these & Al-Khor 0, with the number of drawn games standing at 3.
