National cups are something special for many teams and supporters. Today's match will decide whether it's Al Jazira or Al Wahda that keep their silverware dream alive.

These teams are located so close to each other that their supporters eat in the same restaurants, hang out at the same night clubs and give birth at the same hospitals. This means added importance to the game and a vibrant atmosphere.

Al Jazira have less rest than Al Wahda in this fixture, as the hosts were involved in a Uae League game only four days ago. Thankfully the previous game, versus Al Wasl, was also a home game here at Sheikh Zayed Sports City. The away team is better rested.
