Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Al-Wahda v Baniyas can be found here including the latest game odds.
Al-Wahda go into this game after a 2-2 Arabian Gulf League draw versus Al-Nasr.
It has been seldom in recent times that Al-Wahda have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that The Clarets have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 7 goals in the process.
Coming into this contest, Al-Wahda are unbeaten in their previous 10 league matches at home. A very good run at home.
Baniyas come into this meeting following a 3-1 Arabian Gulf League win versus Al-Dhafra in their previous outing.
A series of accomplished displays by the Baniyas defensive players has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their last 6 outings combined. In that period of time, their forwards have scored 11. We shall soon find out if that trend can be sustained in this game.
Coming into this fixture, Baniyas are undefeated in their last 2 league matches away from home.
