Al Ahli vs Al Wahda by MagicRat
Al Ahli come into this game against Al Wahda in second place in the league table, just two points behind the league leaders, so they will be looking for a win and that is something they have been doing a lot of lately having gone unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions, winning seven of these matches.
Seven of Al Ahli's 18 league matches this season have had over 3.5 goals and four of these have come in their eight home matches. In seven of these eight home matches they have scored two or more goals and in five of these matches they have scored at least three goals which has resulted in an average of 3.25 goals score per home game by Al Ahli. They are good at the back having kept a clean sheet in their last two home matches but prior to that they had conceded in every home league match.
Al Wahda, currently in fifth place, have also had seven of their 18 league matches go over 3.5 goals and five of these have come in their nine away matches. Furthermore, in five of these away matches Al Wahda have scored two or more goals and they have only kept two clean sheets in away matches, conceding two or more goals on four occasions.
With Al Ahli chasing the league title and given their prolific scoring this season you can imagine that Al Wahda will struggle to stop Al Ahli, therefore they are likely to score goals and with a home average of 3.25 goals they can easily score two or three goals here and you wouldn't it past Al Wahda finding the net, therefore I'm willing to back over 3.5 goals here. Most bookmakers have over 3.5 goals around 2.70-2.80 with few bookmakers going at 3.00 or over, therefore I think odds of 3.10 offered by William Hill are very appealing, especially considering three of their last six meetings have had over 3.5 goals, including their meeting earlier this season which saw Al Ahli win 3-1.
