Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Al-Arabi v Al-Kharaitiyat can be found here - as well as the best betting odds.
Al-Arabi will be looking for an improved result here following a 2-3 Stars League losing effort in their last game against Al-Duhail.
Heimir Hallgrímsson's Al-Arabi have hit the target a sum total of 6 times in their last six outings. Conversely, the number of goals that have been scored against them in that time is 8.
Ahead of this meeting, Al-Arabi are unbeaten in the league by Al-Kharaitiyat in their previous 11 games. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Al-Ahli in Stars League action, Al-Kharaitiyat will be aiming to make amends here.
The stats tell the story, and Al-Kharaitiyat have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 11 goals overall. At the back, The Thunders have been far from perfect. That sort of pattern might not be continued into this game, though.
Analysis of their past results shows that Al-Kharaitiyat:
- haven't won against Al-Arabi in away games against them for the last 5 matches in the league. Not the best of away records.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 12 league matches. Very poor, indeed.
