Al-Wahda have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets of late, although they’ve also managed to convert their own chances into goals. Analysis of their previous 6 games shows that Al-Wahda have conceded in 6 of them as well as scoring in 6 of those games.
Al-Khaleej head into the match after a 3-1 Professional League win with the defeat of Al-Tai in their last match.

Looking at their form, and Al-Khaleej have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 7 goals in total. In defence, Al-Khaleej have been far from perfect. That aside, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern shall continue on in this next match.
Team News: Al-Khaleej
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to select from, the Al-Khaleej manager has zero fitness worries to report before this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Al-Khaleej should have enough to breach the defence of this Al-Wahda side, although that isn’t expected to be as many as they’ll concede.
We can see a 2-1 winning score for Al-Wahda by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Should be an interesting one.
