Al Hala form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Premier League this season. Al Hala, who have the fewest scored goals (14) in Premier League, have only managed 2 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses from their games here at Sheikh Ali bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Stadium.

The Hala fans got no joy from their last match, a Premier League game also here at Sheikh Ali bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Stadium: A 1-2 defeat against Muharraq (placed 2nd). A defeat was the result before that one, 1-2 away at Al-Hidd.

The Al Hala fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 11 in 8 matches. On the other hand, Hala have conceded 11 goals.

Al-Najma form and stats

Al-Najma have only collected 6 points from their away games in the Premier League, after 1-3-4 (8 played).

It might be tough going out on the road again for Al-Najma, facing their second straight away game. Especially as the previous game, ended with a defeat 0-4 versus Al Riffa (placed 3rd). A home win before that, celebrating 1-0 vs East Riffa.

Al-Najma lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-4 beating and focus on this one.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Al-Najma as they have only managed to score 5 times from 8 away games in the league. 11 goals have been conceded by Al-Najma in these games.

Head 2 Head

This is the result when the teams met earlier this season; Al-Najma - Hala 4-1. Head-to-head totals (for the last three meetings): Al Hala won zero games, one match ended with a draw and Al-Najma has two wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: two / one
