Al-Wasl hopes that coach Salem Rabie will present credentials and enter the hearts of the fans, when he meets Al-Nasr at 9 p.m. today at Al Wasl Stadium in Zabeel, in the third round of the Arabian Gulf League, as he bets on the former Al-Nasr substitute coach to get rid of the complex of not winning in Bur Dubai Derby »In the last six matches, the two teams have gathered.
Al Wasl is playing the first match under the leadership of coach Salem Rabie, after he was appointed to succeed the Romanian coach Laurent Regicamp. Rabih led the team in the second round of the league to win Hatta 4-2, before it was decided to rely on him to appoint a full technical staff, the most prominent of which is the former coach of the team, Hassan Al Abdouli. .
Al-Wasl's last victory over Al-Nassr goes back to the quarter-finals of the Arabian Gulf Cup, when it won with a goal without response by Caio Canedo on February 16, 2018, and Salawi's last victory in the league was on November 2, 2017 with two unanswered goals, scored by Fabio Lima.
On the other hand, the last six matches that brought the two teams together witnessed a great advantage in favor of "Al-Ameed", who won four matches, with three matches in the league with results of 2-1, 3-1 and 4-2, and a match in the quarter-finals of the Arab Gulf Cup last season with a penalty shootout after the end The match drew without goals, while the two teams drew in their last two matches in the league last season, the results of which were canceled, with a 0-0 draw in the home and away matches.
Al Wasl is involved in the "derby" with high spirits, after he achieved an important victory with ten players at Hatta, to compensate Al-Asfar for his loss in the first round against Bani Yas with four goals for a goal, while Al-Wasl received a moral boost, after the objection committee decided on the referees' decisions in the Football Association to cancel The red card that Salem Al Azizi received in the Hatta match, to be ready to participate in today's match.
Although coach Salem Rabei confirmed in the press conference that the "derby" match is worth three points and does not differ from other matches in the league, it is without doubt that a victory over Al Nasr will give the coach a big moral boost in the upcoming matches.
On the other hand, the situation does not differ much in the Al-Nasr club, which seeks to outdo its traditional competitor, until it confirms the nominations that placed "Al-Ameed" in the list of clubs that will compete in the title, especially since the start of "Al-Azraq" was not encouraging with a draw on its land against Al-Jazira with the goal of each team. In the first round, before defeating Khorfakkan with great difficulty, in the second round.
