Al-Wasl will be wanting a better result here after the 1-2 Arabian Gulf League defeat last time out to Al-Ain.
It has not been often in recent times where Al-Wasl haven’t conceded. The facts show that The Cheetahs have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 14 goals in the process. While that may be of interest, time will tell if that trend shall persist in this next match or not.
Going into this one, Al-Wasl have not won at home in their last 3 league matches.
Al-Fujairah head into the clash following a 1-0 Arabian Gulf League win against Hatta in their last match.
The stats don’t lie, and Al-Fujairah have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 12 goals in all. In defence, Fujairah have clearly had some problems.
Coming into this meeting, Al-Fujairah are without a win away from home in their last 12 league matches. Their travelling support will be needed here, for sure.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 02/05/2015 reveals that these encounters have been miserable for Al-Fujairah. They’ve not managed to get themselves any victories whatsoever whereas Al-Wasl have just been stronger than them, getting wins in 83% of those match-ups.
