Emirates visit Al Nahyan Stadium on Saturday for the Arabian Gulf League meeting with hosts Al-Wahda.
Our Al-Wahda v Emirates tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - plus the latest match odds.
Al-Wahda will be looking for a repeat result of a 0-1 Arabian Gulf League success over Ajman.
Al-Wahda haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, hitting the target in each and every one of their last 6 games.
They have hit an aggregate of 8 during that period while also conceding a total of 7. We will have to find out whether or not that trend can be continued on in this game.
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Hatta in Arabian Gulf League competition, Emirates and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
Alexander Merkel (49') was the scorer for Hatta.
Showing their partiality to fruitful matches, the back of the net has been hit 24 times in the last 6 games in which Emirates have played, making it a mean average of 4 goals per clash. Opposition teams have managed 14 of these goals.
Head to head
Looking over their past head to head meetings stretching back to 18/11/2017 shows that these fixtures have not been fruitful for Emirates. They’ve not managed to get themselves any victories whatsoever whereas Al-Wahda have been superior, getting wins in 100% of those games where they have faced each other.
Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 25 in all which averages out at 4.17 goals per match.
The previous league meeting between the two was Arabian Gulf League match day 20 on 04/04/2022 which ended up with the score at Emirates 2-4 Al-Wahda.
Team News: Al-Wahda
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Al-Wahda boss Henk ten Cate to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. 6 (Al-Wahda) will miss out.
Team News: Emirates
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there is only the one fitness problem for the Emirates manager Jalal Qaderi to be concerned about. 12 (Emirates Club ) won’t be in action.
We envisage that Al-Wahda will most probably score a couple of goals when they come up against Emirates, who might well find it a difficult task to score themselves.
We reckon that it will be a comfortable 2-0 winning margin for Al-Wahda at full-time.
