All Al-Nasr v Al-Dhafra match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
Al-Nasr, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 1-3 Arabian Gulf League triumph over Al-Ain.
It has been all too rare in recent games where Al-Nasr have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that The Blue Wave have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 8 goals along the way.
In their previous fixture, Al-Dhafra drew 2-2 in the Arabian Gulf League tie with Hatta.
In a total of 6 out of the previous 6 games featuring Al-Dhafra, three or more goals have been hit. The overall average goals scored per match within that time is 3.67, with the number of goals averaged by Al-Dhafra being 1.17. With no two games being the same, we must now wait to see if that pattern might be maintained here in this match.

Due to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from, Al-Dhafra boss Vuk Rašovic has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game.
We envisage that Al-Nasr are likely to get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the other end, Al-Dhafra will not find it easy to score a goal of their own although we do think it’s probable that they will be being dangerous at times, too.
Our tip is for a decent 3-1 margin for Al-Nasr at the conclusion of the game.
