Team News: East Riffa
Owing to a completely healthy group to pick from, East Riffa boss Pedro Gómez Carmona does not have any fitness concerns to report ahead of this game.
When taking everything into account, Al-Muharraq may find it difficult to hit the back of the net against this East Riffa team who will likely score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore tipping a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 victory for East Riffa at full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
