View all of the Al-Sadd v Al-Khor predictions, poll and stats below (plus the best game odds).
Al-Sadd will be looking for an improved result here after the 1-0 AFC Champions League loss in their previous game against Persepolis.
Matches with Al-Sadd have proved to be lively ones recently with plenty of scoring being a common characteristic. Over their past 6 games alone, the sum total of 22 goals have been recorded for both teams combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game) with 14 of these belonging to The Wolves .
Looking at the pre-match facts, Al-Sadd:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Al-Khor in their last 4 matches.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 6 home league matches.
After a losing effort in their last game against Al-Ahli in Stars League competition, Al-Khor and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Bernard Casoni's Al-Khor have fired home 6 times throughout their previous six matches. The overall goals that have been scored against them during that period comes to 6.
Taking a look at their past results, Al-Khor:
- have not beaten Al-Sadd in away games against them for the last 2 league matches.
- have not won away from home in their last 17 league games. What a horror away run it has been.
Head to head
Looking over their prior head to head clashes going back to 01/12/2017 shows us that Al-Sadd have won 5 of these games & Al-Khor 1, with the number of drawn results standing at 0.
Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 23 overall at an average of 3.83 goals per match.
Team News: Al-Sadd
Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Al-Sadd boss Xavi Hernández to contend with from an otherwise complete group of players. Saud Ibrahim Al-Nasr (Corona virus) is sidelined.
Team News: Al-Khor
Due to a completely healthy squad to pick from, Al-Khor boss Bernard Casoni has zero fitness worries to report ahead of this clash.
We’re inclined to think that Al-Sadd will, in all likelihood, get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the same time, Al-Khor will be up against it to make a breakthrough but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be being dangerous at times, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a comfortable 3-1 winning score for Al-Sadd at full-time.
