Icelander Heimir Hallgrimsson-coached Al Arabi have had a good run this season with a spate of positive results. However, their fortunes have taken a beating of late, starting with their 0-1 loss to Al Gharafa in Week 7.

The Dream Team then lost 1-2 to Al Rayyan before being held to a 2-2 draw by Al Wakrah last week.

But Al Arabi have the advantage of having played one match less as their Week 5 fixture Against defending champions Al Sadd was deferred due to the latter’s AFC Champions League commitment.
