Al-Ain had a slow start to the campaign, but picked up pace as they reached the tail end of the group stage. They drew their first four games and were in danger of getting eliminated. But they earned the qualification to the knockout round in style by winning back-to-back games.

That’s no all, Al-Ain has been doing exceptionally well in all competitions lately. They are currently on a 9-match winning run in all competitions, the two champions league wins fall inside this period.

Al-Duhail, if you don’t know already, this is the Qatari club known as Lekhwiya until April 2017. This season’s Champion League group phase record is a special one for the club as they are the only club in the current campaign to win 6 out of 6 games. Also, they are coming into this knockout tie on some terrific form on the back of a 16 match win streak in all competitions.

This is Al-Ain’s sixth consecutive season at the Champions League, but their best in the competition is the title win in 2003. Al-Duhail are making their 7th consecutive appearance at this competition. Their best is quarter final appearances in 2013 and 2015.

Al-Ain vs Al-Duhail: Head-to-head

The teams met during the 2014 group stage and Al-Ain won both legs 2-1 at home and 5-0 in the away leg.

Al-Ain vs Al-Duhail: Predictions

One may not go wrong by backing goals in this game since both sides in this contest were involved in some high scoring games lately. On top of that, Al-Ain’s last five Champions League games saw both teams scoring and Al-Duhail despite scoring in every game conceded 6 in return. So, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals and a combination of both is the best bets for this match. The full-time result is too close to call and I wouldn’t risk my money here since these two are in superb form.

Al-Ain vs Al-Duhail: Bet Tips
