Al-Gharafa will be wanting a better result here after a 0-1 Stars League losing effort in their last game against Al-Sailiya.
It’s been all too rare in recent times where Al-Gharafa have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that The Cheetahs have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 8 goals in the process.
Coming into this contest, Al-Gharafa haven’t won at home in the past 3 matches in the league.
Al-Duhail head into the meeting after a 2-0 Stars League win with the defeat of Al-Rayyan in their previous fixture.
During their six latest matches, Sabri Lamouchi's Al-Duhail have slotted home 10 times thus yielding them the goals scored per game average of 1.67.
Coming into this clash, Al-Duhail are without an away win for the past 2 matches in the league.
Head to head
A glance at their most recent head-to-head clashes going back to 08/02/2018 shows us that Al-Gharafa have won 1 of them & Al-Duhail 4, with the number of drawn results being 1.
A combined total of 20 goals were scored between them in these games, with 7 of them from The Cheetahs and 13 coming from The Red Knights. That’s an average goals per game figure of 3.33.
Team News: Al-Gharafa
Al-Gharafa manager Slaviša Jokanović will be grateful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match thanks to a fully healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Al-Duhail
With a fully injury-free squad available to select from, Al-Duhail boss Sabri Lamouchi has zero fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game.
We’re inclined to think that Al-Gharafa have it within them to score against this Al-Duhail side, although just one goal possibly won’t quite be enough to give them the result that they want.
We therefore reckon that it will be a very close game with a 1-2 victory for Al-Duhail by the conclusion of the game. It really should be an interesting one.
