Al-Sadd will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 3-0 Stars League success against Al-Ahli.
Al-Sadd can boast an impressive attacking record recently, smashing 27 goals past their opponents over the course of the last six fixtures. In those meetings, The Wolves have also seen the aggregate sum of goals scored against them total 2.
Going into this encounter, Al-Sadd are unbeaten in their last 14 home league matches. Incredible, really.
Al-Arabi come into this meeting following on from a 1-0 Stars League win to defeat Al-Wakrah in their most recent game.
A run of steadfast showings from the Al-Arabi defenders has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 1 from their last 6 fixtures in total. During the same period, their forwards have scored 7. We will see if that trend will end up being sustained into this next match.
Their prior results show that Al-Arabi:
- haven't been defeated in their previous 4 league matches away from home.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league matches.

Those games weren’t short on goals, either, with 34 in all at an average of 5.67 goals per match.
Team News: Al-Sadd
There is just one fitness concern for the Al-Sadd boss Xavi Hernández to be concerned with from a near full-strength group of players. Saud Ibrahim Al-Nasr (Corona virus) will miss out.
Team News: Al-Arabi
Owing to a completely injury-free squad ready to go, Al-Arabi manager Heimir Hallgrímsson has zero fitness worries to speak of before this match.
In this match, Al-Sadd will probably be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
At the same time, Al-Arabi could well struggle to make a breakthrough but we do fancy them scoring here as well.
Accordingly, we see a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Al-Sadd at the end of the match.
