This year’s start of Al Khaleej is disappointing. They made almost 20 signings in the summer with the aim to do something better than staying in the league, but for now they remains without a point. They didn’t convince with its image in the away game against Damac and was „punished” in the 93rd minute with a penalty indicated by VAR. Today’s match is crucial and they will not be able to compete again at their home stadium due to some reconstructions. Their squad is full with quality players like Cikalleshi (ex Konyaspor player), Brazilians Morato (ex Bragantino and Vasco player), Lucas (ex APOEL player), Friedrich (ex Avai goalkeeper), Poko (ex Altay player), Anthony (ex Hapoel Haifa player), while on the bench is experienced Portuguese coach Pedro Emanuel. It is no surprise that Al Adalh started their return to the top flight with two defeats. The roster is very weak and they are forced to fight to the end to stay. Suspensefully, they again showed striking weaknesses in the difficult away game against Al Taee and lost by 1:0, but have a lot of luck, because the home side missed a lot of chances. Tunisian coach Al Manai is under pressure and on the last trainings, they worked on the mistakes made mainly in defense. Both teams remain without a point in their return to the top division. It is no surprise for Al Adalh, but Al Khaleej has been significantly strengthened. Although, they will not be competing in their home stadium, I expect them to make a reaction and will trust them to grab the three points.
