The Arabian Gulf League match at Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium on Friday sees home side Al-Ain do battle with Al-Fujairah.
All Al-Ain v Al-Fujairah match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
Al-Ain will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 1-2 Arabian Gulf League victory over Sharjah.
Al-Ain haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, netting in one hundred percent of their last 6 matches.
They have claimed a sum of 9 during that time and have conceded a total of 10. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, though.
Analysis of their past results shows that Al-Ain:
- have not lost a league tie with Al-Fujairah in their previous 5 games.
- are without a home win in the past 4 league games. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
Al-Fujairah come into this meeting following on from a 4-2 Arabian Gulf League win as they beat Al-Dhafra in their most recent match.
Al-Fujairah have been effective going forward of late, scoring 10 times in their last 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that Fujairah have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same matches.
Ahead of this clash, Al-Fujairah are without a win away from home in their last 18 league matches. What a horror away run it has been.
Head to head
Looking at their past head-to-head clashes going back to 28/04/2016 tells us that Al-Ain have won 3 of them & Al-Fujairah 1, with the tally of drawn results standing at 2.

We’re of the view that Al-Fujairah are capable enough to score against this Al-Ain side, although that is unlikely to be enough to avoid defeat.
We can see a very close game with a 2-1 advantage for Al-Ain when all is said and done. Hopefully this is a good one.
