Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai
Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai will be looking for another win after a 1-2 Arabian Gulf League victory versus Al-Dhafra.
It has been all too rare in recent games that Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Al Fursan Al Humur have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 7 goals along the way.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai:
- haven't won against Al-Fujairah in their last 2 league games.
- are undefeated in their last 8 league matches at home. Visiting teams have certainly not had an easy time of it here.
Al-Fujairah come into this meeting after a 2-0 Arabian Gulf League win to beat Al-Nasr in their most recent match.
The stats don’t lie, and Al-Fujairah have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 12 goals overall. In defence, Fujairah just haven’t been too solid at all. That pattern might not be carried forward into this match, of course.
Coming into this meeting, Al-Fujairah haven’t won away from home in the past 21 league matches. They must be getting so desperate.
Head to head
Looking at their prior head to head meetings stretching back to 09/01/2016 shows that Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai have won 3 of these games & Al-Fujairah 2, with the tally of draws standing at 1.
A combined total of 18 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 11 for Al Fursan Al Humur and 7 belonging to Fujairah. The average goals per game has been 3.
Team News: Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai
There is just a single fitness concern for the Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai gaffer Rodolfo Arruabarrena to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Aziz Ganiev (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out.
Team News: Al-Fujairah
Due to a fully healthy group available to choose from, Al-Fujairah manager Madjid Bougherra doesn’t have any fitness worries at all before this game.
We believe that Al-Fujairah certainly have the ability to put one past this Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai team, however it is unlikely to be enough to prevent defeat.
Our tip is for a 2-1 win for Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai when the full-time whistle blows. We’ll have to see what happens.
