  • Al-Ahly scores 29% of their goals between the 31st and 45th minutes, while Al-Ittihad scores between the 16th and 30th minutes.

Al-Ahly - Form Analysis: Champions League is a priority

The "Red Devils" won the main club tournament in Africa last year. They have reached the final again this year and will play Esperance later this month. Due to these matches, Premier League games have been postponed, so their position in the table shouldn't be a concern. What's more worrying is the number of points already dropped, including several losses to the top favorite, El Gouna was beaten 3-0.

Al-Ittihad - Form Analysis: Recent matches were not successful

The "City's Hosts" are considered a typical mid-table team in the local Premier League. This season started well for them, but April hasn't been kind. A four-match unbeaten streak was broken by a 0-3 defeat to Zamalek, followed by a couple of draws and then a 1-2 loss to El Gouna. These results have pushed them down in the standings. Only with Baladiyat at home ground win 2-1.
