Our tips, poll and stats for Al-Ahli v Umm Salal can all be found here (including the best match odds).
Al-Ahli will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 3-0 Stars League loss in their previous game against Al-Sadd.
Over their past six fixtures, Nebojša Jovović's Al-Ahli have hit the target 6 times giving them an average number of goals per match of 1.
Pre-game facts show that Al-Ahli:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Umm Salal in their previous 4 games.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 matches in the league.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Qatar SC in Stars League action, Umm Salal and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
The attacking players from Umm Salal have had real problems scoring goals in their past six games, recording the disappointing return of only 2. In those matches, Barzan Falcons have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 3. Let’s find out whether or not that trend will be continued on here.
Taking a look at their past results, Umm Salal:
- have not beaten Al-Ahli in away games against them for the last 2 league matches.
- are undefeated in their last 4 away league matches.
Head to head
Inspecting their prior head to head meetings dating back to 27/01/2018 tells us that Al-Ahli have won 2 of them and Umm Salal 1, with the tally of drawn games being 3.
12 goals were produced between them in these games, with 6 from Al Ameed and 6 being from Barzan Falcons. That’s an average goals per game of 2.
Team News: Al-Ahli
Al-Ahli manager Nebojša Jovović has no fitness worries at all coming into this game with a completely healthy squad available to choose from.
Team News: Umm Salal
Thanks to a fully healthy group available for selection, Umm Salal boss Aziz Ben Askar has zero fitness concerns whatsoever before this game.
Our feeling is that Umm Salal will have to play well to put one past this Al-Ahli team who we think will likely emerge victorious.
We’re therefore anticipating a good tussle with a 1-0 advantage for Al-Ahli at the end of this game.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
