Al-Arabi play host to away team Umm Salal at Grand Hamad Stadium in the Stars League match on Monday.
Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Al-Arabi v Umm Salal (including the best match odds).
Al-Arabi won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 1-2 Stars League loss in their previous game against Al-Gharafa.
Al-Arabi have found it difficult to unlock defences of late. Their sum of goals stands at just 4 vs opposition teams during their previous 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Fareeg Al-Ahlam have also seen the number of goals against them come to 9.
Looking at their past form shows that Al-Arabi:
- have not been beaten in the league by Umm Salal in their previous 5 games.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.
After being beaten in their last game against Al-Wakrah in Stars League action, Umm Salal and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
A tendency of at least one team drawing a blank in games featuring Umm Salal has become evident recently. Examining their last 6 games reveals that it has occurred 5 times. During those clashes, their opponents have hit a goal tally of 7 and Barzan Falcons have scored 1. We shall soon see if that trend can be continued on into this next match.
A look at their previous results shows us that Umm Salal:
- have left without a victory over Al-Arabi in away games against them for the last 4 league games. Not the best of away records.
- are without a win away from home in their last 5 league games.
Head to head
An examination of their past head to head meetings going back to 14/10/2017 tells us that Al-Arabi have won 3 of these games & Umm Salal 1, with the tally of drawn games standing at 2.

Team News: Al-Arabi
Al-Arabi manager Heimir Hallgrímsson does not have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Umm Salal
With a completely healthy squad available to select from, Umm Salal boss Aziz Ben Askar does not have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash.
In our opinion, Al-Arabi will, in all likelihood, be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
In contrast, Umm Salal might well find it a difficult task getting on the scoresheet but we do fancy them managing to get on the scoresheet as well here.
Accordingly, we see a controlled 3-1 winning margin for Al-Arabi after 90 minutes.
