Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Sharjah v Al-Nasr are shown on this page - as well as up-to-date odds.
Sharjah, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 0-2 Arabian Gulf League victory over Dibba Al-Fujairah.
Their latest results reveal that there has been much resilience in the Sharjah backline. Sharjah have been stingy, resulting in the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their last six games standing at 3. We will see whether or not that trend will be continued on in this game.
Last time out, Al-Nasr drew 2-2 in the Arabian Gulf League tie with Al-Bataeh.
The only scorer from Al-Nasr was Adel Taarabt (45'). João Novais (11') was the scorer for Al-Bataeh.
Illustrating their involvement in high-scoring encounters, goals have been celebrated 22 times in the prior six games in which Al-Nasr have taken to the field, giving a mean average of 3.67 goals per fixture. Their opponents have managed 16 of this grand total.
Head to head
An examination of their most recent head-to-head meetings stretching back to 14/02/2019 tells us that Sharjah have won 4 of these and Al-Nasr 2, with the number of drawn games being 0.
A total of 16 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 9 of them from Al Malek and 7 for The Blue Wave. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.67.
The last league meeting featuring the two was Arabian Gulf League match day 20 on 03/04/2022 when it ended Al-Nasr 0-2 Sharjah.
Team News: Sharjah
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just one fitness concern for the Sharjah manager Abdulaziz Al Yassi to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength squad. 1 (Sharjah FC) is out of contention.
Team News: Al-Nasr
In an otherwise available group of players, there’s only the one fitness worry for the Al-Nasr gaffer Krunoslav Jurčić to contend with. 12 (Al-Nasr SC) misses out for this game.
In our view, Sharjah have it within them to convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
At the same time, Al-Nasr may well find it hard to break down their defence although we do reckon that they could well end up being dangerous for periods.
We’re therefore expecting to see a fairly comfortable 3-1 margin for Sharjah when all’s said and done.
