Al Ittihad will be hoping to return to winning ways here following a 1-3 Premier League defeat last time out to Aswan.
In their last six fixtures, Talaat Youssef's Al Ittihad have hit the target a combined total of 7 times which gives them an average number of goals per match equal to 1.17.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Al Ittihad:
- have not lost a league tie with Wadi Degla in their previous 4 matches.
- have not beaten Wadi Degla in their last 2 matches in the league.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Misr Lel-Makkasa in Premier League action, Wadi Degla and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
It has become apparent that Wadi Degla have suffered from a lack of goals in their past 6 clashes, netting the poor return of only 2. In those matches, Community of Champions have also seen the overall goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 10. We will have to see if that trend will end up being sustained in this game.

- are undefeated by Al Ittihad in games played away from home for the previous 2 league matches.
- are without an away win for the past 8 league matches. Who knows how long it might last, too.
