For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for Hidd SCC v Al-Najma, scroll down - as well as the best betting odds.
Hidd SCC will be hoping for a better result after a 0-2 Premier League loss in their previous game against Riffa SC.
It has not been often in recent times that Hidd SCC have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Hidd SCC have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 8 goals in the process. We will just have to see whether or not that trend can be sustained here.
In their last fixture, Al-Najma drew 2-2 in the Premier League tie with Busaiteen.
The stats tell the story, and Al-Najma have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 13 goals in all. In defence, Al-Najma have seen their frailties exposed.
Looking at their past form shows that Al-Najma:
- are unbeaten in their previous 4 league matches away from home.
- are without an away win for the past 2 league games.
Team News: Al-Najma
With a fully injury-free group to choose from, Al-Najma manager Fathi Labidi does not have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash.
We’re inclined to think that Al-Najma will need to apply a lot of pressure to hit the back of the net against this Hidd SCC outfit who we think will be able to grind out a win.
We’re therefore seeing a very competitive game with a 1-0 winning margin for Hidd SCC at the end of this one.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
