Al-Shamal prepare for this fixture following on from a 2-2 Stars League draw versus Al-Ahli.
It has been all too rare in recent times where Al-Shamal have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Al-Shamal have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 8 goals in the process.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Al-Duhail in Stars League competition, Umm Salal and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The only scorer from Umm Salal was Valentino Yuel (43'). Bassam Al Rawi (81') and Michael Olunga (87', 90') scored for Al-Duhail.
Aziz Ben Askar's Umm Salal have converted a total of 5 times in the course of their latest six matches. The overall goals that they have conceded during that period adds up to 10.
Head to head
The previous league match featuring the two was Stars League match day 16 on 23/01/2022 when the final score was Al-Shamal 0-6 Umm Salal.
Team News: Al-Shamal
The Al-Shamal manager will be thankful to have no fitness concerns at all ahead of this clash thanks to a completely injury-free group to choose from.
Team News: Umm Salal
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the Umm Salal gaffer Aziz Ben Askar to be concerned about. Yaseen Al-Bakheet (Broken wrist) won’t be in action.
When taking all factors into account, Umm Salal and Al-Shamal could find scoring goals difficult here.
It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. We’re therefore anticipating a hard-fought 0-0 score at the end of this game.
