Al Ittihad have failed to win any of their last five matches

Al Ittihad have endured a tough finish to the season after failing to win any of their last five matches. In the previous game, they managed to secure a much-needed draw to boost their confidence after losing four games in a row and losing Marcelo Gallardo in the process at the end of the season.

Al Ittihad’s downfall has also been attributed to injuries, as they are missing several key players at the moment. Despite winning the league last season, few people could have predicted they would be going through this rough patch of form. 

On the other hand, Damac have secured their place for the next season with the team on course to finish in the mid-table. Currently in the 10th spot, the team will have to improve to finish strong.

After two consecutive losses to Al Ahli and Al-Taawoun, they have managed to pull off back-to-back draws in the last two matches. They played a 1-1 draw against Al Feiha in their last match but weren’t able to grab a victory. Despite taking 16 shots, they failed to win the game.

Player to Watch

N’Golo Kanté (Al Ittihad) 

Kanté has been one of the best defensive midfielders of this generation and seems to be on the rise. Although Al Ittihad’s season has been underwhelming, he has been impressive this season. Through tackles and interceptions, he breaks up play efficiently and does not get enough credit for the job he does in the middle of the park.

As a result of his performance for Al Ittihad, he has been recalled to the France National team squad for this summer’s Euros, where Deschamps hopes he can play a key role. 

Georges-Kevin N’Koudou (Damac)

It has been a great season for the Cameroon international who has looked like a threat all season for Damac. He scored 15 goals in 29 matches, while also contributing four assists.

Playing mainly on the left wing, he likes to dribble past the opposition with his trickery and speed to score some important goals for the team by cutting into his favoured right foot. Additionally, he tracks players for the team as part of his defensive duties. 

Match Facts

  • Al Ittihad have not won a single game in the last five attempts
