Al Shabab have started great the league with 4 wins in a row, but they haven't faced any strong side in those games. This will be their first real test. Al Shabab should be without Argentine playmaker Tomas De Vincenti (3 yellows) and regular right-back Manei Mohammed, a player which was injured two games ago and his recovery should last at least a month. Their only dangerous player remains Henrique Luvannor. Boymans is powerful striker, good in the air, but with ball at his feet is not great at all. Al Ahli didn't played great in the last round against Dibba, but even so they have won by 4 goals to one thanks to the quaity of their offensive players. Ahmed Khalil should miss out again as he has some medical problems, but in attack are a lot of players who can make the difference. Both teams have met already this season in the League Cup and Al Ahli have won the game despite they were without their international players. Now only Ahmed Khalil should be absent, while Majed Hassan is a long term injury. I think Al Ahli will win again.
