All Umm Salal v Al-Ahli match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below including the latest game odds.
Umm Salal are hoping to win again following the 0-1 Stars League triumph vs Qatar SC.
An interesting feature of recent Umm Salal games is the number of results with a nil in them.
Taking their prior six matches leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on both teams scoring would have been a losing one.
A look at their previous results shows us that Umm Salal:
- have left without a victory over Al-Ahli in their previous 3 league games.
- have not won at home in their last 5 league games. Their fans aren't happy.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Al-Sadd in Stars League action, Al-Ahli and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In the course of their 6 latest matches, Nebojša Jovović's Al-Ahli have managed to stick the ball in the net a total of 8 times therefore giving them a goals scored per game average of 1.33.

Team News: Umm Salal
Umm Salal manager Aziz Ben Askar will be grateful not to have any fitness worries at all before this game owing to a fully healthy group available for selection.
Team News: Al-Ahli
Owing to a fully injury-free squad to pick from, Al-Ahli boss Nebojša Jovović has zero fitness worries at all coming into this clash.
We’re of the view that Umm Salal might well have a job on their hands to breach the defence of this Al-Ahli outfit who we think should gain the upper hand.
We’ve gone for a good tussle with a 0-1 advantage for Al-Ahli at full-time.
It should be a good one.
