View all of the Al-Sadd v Al-Duhail predictions, poll and stats below - plus the latest match odds.
Al-Sadd will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 8-0 Stars League victory against Al-Sailiya.
Fixtures involving Al-Sadd have proved to be entertaining affairs recently with a lot of goalmouth action anticipated. Over their past half dozen games alone, the sum total of 26 goals have flown in for both teams combined (at an average of 4.33 goals per game) with 23 of them being chalked up by The Wolves .
Looking at the pre-match facts, Al-Sadd:
- haven't lost in the league to Al-Duhail in their last 2 matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 11 home league matches. It's been impressive.
Al-Duhail will go into this meeting following on from a 8-1 Stars League win with the defeat of Al-Wakrah in their previous match.
A very clinical Al-Duhail have helped themselves to an abundance of goals over their last six clashes (23 to be precise). That translates to an impressive mean average of 3.83 goals scored per game during this period of time. While that may be of interest, time will tell whether the trend might be maintained in this next match or not.
Their past results show that Al-Duhail:
- have not won against Al-Sadd in games played away from home for the previous 2 league games.
- are unbeaten in their last 3 away league matches.

Team News: Al-Sadd
Regarding absentees, there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Al-Sadd boss Xavi Hernández to contend with due to a largely intact group. Saud Ibrahim Al-Nasr (Corona virus) is out of contention.
Team News: Al-Duhail
With a completely injury-free squad available for selection, Al-Duhail boss Walid Regragui does not have any fitness worries to speak of before this game.
When taking all factors into account, Al-Sadd will, in all likelihood, have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
Conversely, Al-Duhail could well find it tough to score but do we see them converting at least once here.
We’re predicting a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Al-Sadd when the full-time whistle blows.
