Team News: Al-Bataeh
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Al-Bataeh boss to contend with from an otherwise complete squad. 7 (Al-Bataeh CSC) is out of contention.
Team News: Sharjah
Out of a mainly full-strength group of players, there’s just the sole fitness problem for the Sharjah boss Abdulaziz Al Yassi to be concerned with. 4 (Sharjah FC) won’t be playing here.
We’re inclined to think that Al-Bataeh must be fancied to find the back of the net against this Sharjah outfit, although one goal probably won’t quite be enough to avoid defeat.
Therefore, we’re predicting a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 winning margin for Sharjah at the end of this one. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
