Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for Ismaily v Al Ittihad can be seen below - as well as the best betting odds.
Ismaily enter this match following on from a 0-0 Premier League tied result vs Pharco.
An interesting feature of recent Ismaily games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
Taking their previous sextet of clashes before this one, in 5 of them a bet on BTTS would've been a losing one.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Al Ahly in Premier League action, Al Ittihad and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Ziad Tarek (44') scored for Al Ahly.
The stats don’t lie, and Al Ittihad have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 13 goals in all. At the back, Al Ittihad seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. That kind of trend might not be carried forward into this next game, though.
Head to head
Inspecting their past head-to-head clashes stretching back to 28/01/2019 shows that Ismaily have won 2 of these & Al Ittihad 4, with the tally of drawn results being 0.

Team News: Ismaily
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Ismaily gaffer Miodrag Ješić to contend with from a near full-strength group. Mohamed Ammar (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out.
Team News: Al Ittihad
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the Al Ittihad boss Talaat Youssef does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game.
We’re inclined to think that Al Ittihad must be fancied to score against this Ismaily team, but it probably shouldn’t be as many as they will have scored against them.
We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 winning score for Ismaily at the end of this one. It really should be an interesting one.
