Team News: Hatta
Hatta manager Christos Kontis has no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this clash with a completely injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai
Shabab Al-Ahli boss Rodolfo Arruabarrena has not got a full squad to pick from. Aziz Ganiev (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Omar Abdulrahman (Knee Injury) can’t be considered.
We’ve got the feeling that Hatta should be able to breach the defence of this Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai side, although just one goal likely won’t be as many as they will have scored against them.
We are therefore anticipating a narrow 1-2 advantage for Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai when the referee blows the final whistle. Let’s see what eventuates.
