Al-Wakrah will be at Suhaim Bin Hamad Stadium on Wednesday for the Stars League showdown with home team Umm Salal.
Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Umm Salal v Al-Wakrah are shown on this page including the latest game odds.
Umm Salal will be looking for a repeat result of a 0-1 Stars League success against Al-Khor.
Fewer than three goals per game were seen in 6 of the past 6 meetings where Umm Salal have been involved. With regard to the goal split during that period, their opponents scored a total of 4 and Barzan Falcons managed the sum of 5. Nonetheless, we must now wait to see whether the trend shall be replicated in this game.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Al-Duhail in Stars League competition, Al-Wakrah will be aiming to make amends here.
The forward players for Al-Wakrah have suffered from a lack of goals in their past six clashes, netting the unsatisfactory return of just 4. In those fixtures, The Blue Wave have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 17.
Coming into this contest, Al-Wakrah haven’t won away from home in the past 3 league games.
Head to head
A look at their past head to head meetings stretching back to 18/03/2016 tells us that Umm Salal have won 4 of them and Al-Wakrah 1, with the number of drawn games standing at 1.
17 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 10 of them from Barzan Falcons and 7 for The Blue Wave. That is an average goals per game value of 2.83.
Team News: Umm Salal
Umm Salal boss Aziz Ben Askar has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game with a completely healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Al-Wakrah
With a completely healthy squad available to select from, Al-Wakrah manager Tintín Márquez has no fitness concerns at all before this game.
We’re thinking that Umm Salal will have to play well to breach the defence of this Al-Wakrah lineup who we think will likely score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We’ve gone for a good battle with a 0-1 winning score for Al-Wakrah at the end of the match.
A close call.
