All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Al-Wasl v Al-Dhafra are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
Al-Wasl will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 3-2 Arabian Gulf League losing effort in their last game against Al-Nasr.
Al-Wasl haven’t had any problems with scoring, hitting the target in one hundred percent of their last 6 matches.
They have managed to rack up 11 during that period and have conceded a total of 9. Let’s see if that trend can be continued on here.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Al-Ain in Arabian Gulf League competition, Al-Dhafra and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Indicating their bias toward eventful encounters, goals have been scored 20 times in the prior six games in which Al-Dhafra have taken to the field, making it a mean average of 3.33 goals each clash. Opposition teams have hit 9 of those goals.
Head to head
An inspection of their past head to head results going back to 30/03/2019 reveals that these fixtures have been a source of anguish for Al-Dhafra. They have not been able to get themselves any wins whatsoever while Al-Wasl have been too good for them, finishing as winners in 67% of those ties.
A sum of 19 goals were produced between them in these games, with 12 from The Cheetahs and 7 netted by The Western Knights. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.17.
Team News: Al-Wasl
Regarding absentees, there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Al-Wasl boss to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group. Fábio Lima (Unknown Injury) misses out.
Team News: Al-Dhafra
Owing to a completely injury-free group available for selection, the Al-Dhafra manager Vuk Rašovic has no fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash.
We believe that Al-Wasl should dominate possession and create several successful chances.
At the same time, Al-Dhafra could well find it tough to break down their defence but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be hitting back at some stage here.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a decent 3-1 margin for Al-Wasl after 90 minutes.
