Ajman seeks to take advantage of the many absences that Al-Ahly youth will miss, when the two teams meet in the 13th round of the ADNOC Professional League, at 5:15 pm today at Rashid bin Saeed Stadium in Ajman, as the “Orange” hopes to achieve a historic victory over the “Dubai Knights”. ».
The Ajman team had never achieved any victory at home in the history of its confrontations with Shabab Al-Ahly in the league, while the “Orange” achieved one victory over “Dubai Knights” on the ground of Shabab Al-Ahly with two goals to one on January 21, 2018.
Ajman enters the meeting with high spirits, as it presents an exceptional season by obtaining 23 points, and the “Orange” hopes to continue its victories, after winning the previous three rounds over Kalba, Al Dhafra and Al Wahda.
Despite the many absences in the ranks of Al-Ahly youth, Ajman will miss the services of two key players: goalkeeper Ali Al-Hosani and defender Abdullah Saleh, due to suspension and accumulation of yellow cards.
On the other hand, Shabab Al-Ahly misses the services of 10 players, according to what Portuguese coach Jardim said at the press conference, explaining that “the most prominent absences relate to Omar Khribin, Muhammad Marzouk, Abdullah Al-Naqbi and Igor Jesus.”
Al-Ahly youth seeks to return to victories, after suffering a sudden loss at home against Bani Yas in the 12th round, and remains with 25 points.
Shabab Al-Ahly hopes to achieve an important victory in the competition for the title, especially since the team will play a heavy-caliber confrontation in the opening of the second leg of the league, with a difficult confrontation away from home against Sharjah next Friday.
For his part, Jardim stressed the difficulty of the match, and said: “Ajman is very close to us in the number of points, and this factor increases the importance of the match, and requires us to focus more to achieve victory.” He added, “We instilled confidence in all players, and they have to enjoy playing and give everything they have, and I am confident in their ability to achieve what is required.”
• 10 players are absent from Shabab Al-Ahly, most notably the outstanding scorer Igor Jesus.
