View all of the Hatta v Baniyas predictions, poll and stats below - as well as the best betting odds.
Hatta will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 2-4 Arabian Gulf League success vs Emirates.
The only name on the scoresheet from Hatta was Alexander Merkel (49').
It has been all too rare in recent times that Hatta have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Hatta have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 15 goals during that time.
Baniyas will go into the meeting following on from a 1-0 Arabian Gulf League win with the eclipse of Khorfakkan in their last game.
Showing their predisposition for action-packed matches, goals have been seen as many as 20 times in the prior six matches in which Baniyas have played, yielding a mean average of 3.33 goals per fixture. Opposition teams have got 11 of those goals. We will find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.
Head to head
The previous league fixture between these sides was Arabian Gulf League match day 22 on 20/03/2021 when it finished Baniyas 1-0 Hatta.
Team News: Hatta
There is just one fitness concern for the Hatta gaffer Christos Kontis to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed squad. 13 (Hatta Club ) will miss out.
Team News: Baniyas
Thanks to a largely full-strength group of players, there’s only the one fitness issue for the Baniyas boss Winfried Schäfer to be concerned about. 8 (FC Baniyas) won’t be playing here.
We’ve got the feeling that Hatta have the capability to put a goal past this Baniyas lineup, but a single goal possibly won’t be enough to give them the result that they want.
We therefore reckon that it will be a very close game with a 1-2 victory for Baniyas when the referee blows the final whistle. Could easily go either way, this.
