The Professional League clash at King Abdul Aziz Stadium on Friday sees home side Al-Wahda up against Al-Tai.
Our Al-Wahda v Al-Tai tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - along with the latest match odds.
Al-Wahda will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 1-0 Professional League losing effort in their last game against Al-Shabab.
In that game, Al-Wahda managed 43% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 1 on target. Al-Shabab had 12 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.
It has not been often in recent games where Al-Wahda have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Al-Wahda have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 7 goals along the way. Previous results aside, it remains to be seen if the trend might be maintained in this next game or not.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Al-Ittihad in Professional League competition, Al-Tai will be aiming to make amends here.
In that match, Al-Tai managed 37% possession and 16 shots on goal with 3 on target. For their opponents, Al-Ittihad had 16 shots on goal with 5 on target. Abderrazak Hamed Allah (8'), Faisal Al Ghamdi (42') and Romarinho (87') scored for Al-Ittihad.
The numbers tell their own story, and Al-Tai have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 12 goals in all. In defence, Al-Tai have been far from perfect.
