Emirates will be wanting a better result here after the 2-1 Arabian Gulf League defeat last time out to Al-Nasr.
The only scorer from Emirates was Paco Alcácer (45'). Gustavo Alemão (88') and Manolo Gabbiadini (90') scored for Al-Nasr.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where Emirates haven’t conceded. The reality is that Emirates have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 22 goals on the way.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Al-Ain in Arabian Gulf League competition, Al-Bataeh will be aiming to make amends here.
Kodjo Fo-Doh Laba (36') and Omer Atzili (47') scored for Al-Ain.
Showing their involvement in fruitful encounters, goals have been celebrated 20 times in the last 6 games in which Al-Bataeh have played, making it an average of 3.33 goals per fixture. Their opponents have got 11 of those goals. In any event, time will tell if that trend will persist in this upcoming game.

We’re of the opinion that Al-Bataeh and Emirates may well both score at least one goal each although picking a clear a winner isn’t easy.
We’ll see, but this looks like it could end up all-square with both teams likely to score. We’re therefore predicting a very competitive encounter with a 2-2 score draw after 90 minutes.
