Bani Yas was pretty badly in this start of the season after losing some key local players in the summer. They are without a win this campaign, but I think now it's a good moment to make a good match and to win their first game as their opponent is not great at all.
Bani Yas still have failed to complete their foreign quota so far, but even so they have much more quality than Ittihad Kalba. Haboush is on international duty with UAE national team, while another player is injured, but the other important players are available including the Aussie midfielder Mark Milligan and the striker from Argentina, Larrivey.
Kalba wasn't so bad in the league games and did two decent games vs. Dibba (1-0) and Al Shabab (1-2), but in the League Cup they have lost both games because they are not very interested in this competition and their Italian coach said this at the pre-match press conference. Viviani said it's an opportunity to give the other players chances to play.
As I said before I think this is a good opportunity for Bani Yas and for their new coach Repetto to get their first win of the season and this could be a clear victory.
