The Al Dhafra match with Al Orouba, which will be held tomorrow at Al Dhafra Stadium, in the 26th and final round of the ADNOC Professional League, attracts attention without the rest of the matches of the round, as the identity of the team that will be relegated to the amateur league will be determined with the Emirates team, which was officially relegated three rounds ago.
