Al-Rayyan will be looking to improve on their last outing here after a 2-1 Stars League defeat in their last game at the hands of Al-Sadd.
In their preceding 6 games, Diego Aguirre's Al-Rayyan have seen rewards for their attempts on goal a total of 11 times resulting in an average number of goals per match equal to 1.83.
Their past results show that Al-Rayyan:
- have not lost a league tie with Al-Khor in their last 4 matches.

In their last fixture, Al-Khor drew 1-1 in the Stars League tie with Al-Duhail.
Al-Khor have been a threat going forward in their most recent fixtures, having scored 6 goals in their last 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that El Forsan can also improve defensively after being scored against in 5 of those same clashes.

- haven't been defeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 3 matches in the league.
