Al Duhail vs Persepolis: Prediction
Bookies have a lot of faith in home team apparently, as the current odds on Al Duhail to win are 1.85. This is the fourth consecutive group stage participation for Persepolis, so they definitely shouldn’t be underestimated.
Despite the first place in Stars League, Al Duhail have been struggling with inconsistency lately. The team won three out of the last five games across all competitions, but shockingly losing to Al Sadd at home 0-4 and to Al Rayyan 0-1. They have reached the playoffs last season in AFC Champions League.
As for the opposition, Persepolis are entering this clash with super-high morale. The team has won nine out of the last ten games while keeping seven clean sheets.
Both teams have the experience in playing big matches in this competition. We feel there is a solid value in backing visitors with a double chance here at 1.83 rate. They lost only one out of last four games against Al Duhail.
Both teams to score is also a viable option at 1.80 considering good efficiency coming from both ends in 2020.
