With their 4 point advantage in the league table, AS Salé fans are hoping to see their team collect maximum points from this game against Kawkab Marrakech.

Insights:
  • Kawkab Marrakech have the fewest conceded goals in the second half (3) in Botola 2

AS Salé and Kawkab Marrakech should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on artifical turf and that the visiting Kawkab Marrakech have a different surface at their stadium (grass). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on artifical turf is 4-4-9 (win-draw-loss) from 17 matches.
