The Premier League tie at Bahrain National Stadium on Friday will see home side Al-Muharraq playing against Al-Shabab.
Our Al-Muharraq v Al-Shabab tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - plus the latest betting odds.
Al-Muharraq head into this game coming off the back of a 1-1 Premier League drawn match vs East Riffa.
Al-Muharraq have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, hitting the target every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.
They have hit an aggregate of 8 during that period while also conceding a total of 10.
Al-Shabab come into this game after a 0-2 Premier League win with the downing of Budaiya in their previous match.
The numbers tell their own story, and Al-Shabab have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 7 goals in total. Defensively, Al-Shabab certainly have room for improvement. We will just have to find out if that trend will be continued on here.
Head to head
The last league game featuring these sides was Premier League match day 11 on 13/03/2020 when it finished Al-Shabab 0-1 Al-Muharraq.
Team News: Al-Shabab
Due to a fully healthy squad to pick from, the Al-Shabab boss Haitham Jatal doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this game.
Al-Shabab will need to apply a lot of pressure to get anything against this Al-Muharraq outfit who we think will likely just have the edge.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very even contest with a 1-0 winning margin for Al-Muharraq when the full-time whistle blows.
Little in this one.
