Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Al-Wakrah v Al-Khor can be found here - as well as the best betting odds.
Al-Wakrah, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 2-0 Stars League triumph vs Al-Gharafa.
Fewer than three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the last 6 meetings where Al-Wakrah have been involved. With regard to the goal attribution in that period, opposition teams scored an aggregate of 5 while The Blue Wave got themselves 4. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be sustained into this next game, of course.
Leading up to this clash, Al-Wakrah:
- haven't won against Al-Khor in their previous 4 league matches.
- have not been beaten in their last 3 home league matches.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Qatar SC in Stars League competition, Al-Khor will be aiming to make amends here.
In as many as 5 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Al-Khor, a minimum of three goals have been hit. The overall average goals scored per match in that time is 3.67, with the average number of goals for Al-Khor standing at 1.17.
Coming into this clash, Al-Khor are without a win away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.

We’re thinking that Al-Wakrah will probably be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.
In contrast, Al-Khor could well struggle to get shooting opportunities although we do think it’s probable that they will be converting at least once here, too.
We can therefore see a decent 3-1 winning margin for Al-Wakrah at the conclusion of the game.
