Al-Duhail vs Al Ain PREVIEW & PREDICTION 15/05/2018


Very good, we are going with the AFC, second leg between the Al-Duhail of Qatar and the Al-Ain of the Arab Emirates. Already in the first leg I went with the over and left and left less than to try it on the return.

From the first leg I must say a couple of things, the 2-4 gives Al-Ain options that went to go 0-4, quite misleading result, since they were four goals in six arrivals, it was not such the superiority of the Qatar

Al-Duhail has won the league with 11 points of difference over Xavi’s Al-Sadd, playing very well football and generating many chances, which has translated into these numbers, 86 goals in 22 games, which makes an average of 3.90 per game and has received 27. In the group stage of the AFC he has been first winning all the matches, scoring 13 goals and receiving only 6. The Crown Prince Cup won it to Al-Sadd in a controversial final with goal in the penalty shootout and revised with the VAR, 1-2 but in semis won 6-1 to Al-Gharafa. Competition that plays, competition in which it makes goals. We go with their home matches:

– Cup: Al-Gharafa 6-1

Al-Ain meanwhile, recent champion of his league with 7 points of difference on the pursuer, 65 goals in favor and 23 against in 22 games. In addition, he was proclaimed champion of the Presidents Cup by winning 1-2 to Al Wasl, so his season is being more than good. In the group stage of the AFC he finished second behind the Esteghlal of Iran. 10 points, 10 goals in favor and 6 against is his baggage in those six games.

As I said in the first leg, their last match is of the 2014 season and it is not very representative but only to say that Al-Ain won 0-5 and 2-1.
