The league table is allowed to rest as Bani Yas and Al Wasl battle for Arabian Gulf Cup honors in this first 1st Round leg of two fixtures.
Bani Yas form and statsBani was eliminated in the quarter-finals last season in the Arabian Gulf Cup.
Three Uae League home games done for Bani Yas, who are not happy collecting 0 points from these matches. Game days at Baniyas Stadium have recently become somewhat of a nightmare for Bani as they have lost three home games in a row. It hurts.
Bani travelled for their previous game, a trip to Al Nasr that ended 2-2. A disappointing finish for Bani in their match versus Al Nasr as their 2-0 lead was destroyed and replaced with a 2-2 full time score.Before that game, the home loss against Ajman with the scoreline 0-2.
Bani has huge difficulties finding the net and are scoring on average only once per two home matches in the league: 0 goals from 3 games. Bani's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 4 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.
Al Wasl form and statsWasl's mission in Arabian Gulf Cup last season failed in the semi-finals.
Al Wasl are doing rather OK so far in their away games in the Uae League, having played 3 games and collected 4 points (1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss).
M. Araújo scored in Al Wasl's previous match, the home game against Shabab Al Ahli Dubai that ended 1-0.Before that, Wasl travelled to Al Ittihad Kalba and returned home with a draw after the Uae League game finished 1-1.
Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Wasl have scored 4 goals in 3 league games away. As opposed to that, Wasl have seen the ball go into their own net 4 times on the road.
