The match that will bring together the leader of the standings and defending champion Sharjah with the runner-up Al-Nasr at the Sharjah Stadium is the top of the round, as you hope for the clubs of Al-Ahly, Al-Jazira and Al-Ain, and the clubs competing for the title, including digitally Bani Yas and Al-Wahda, who are ranked third and fourth with 10 points;

For the Sharjah match and victory to end in a draw, or at the latest for the "Brigadier" to win, in order to stop the series of victories for the "King" who won in the past five rounds.

On the other hand, the Al-Ahly youth match against Al-Jazira is no less important than the confrontation of Sharjah with Al-Nasr, especially since "Dubai Knights" stumbled in the last round by a draw away to Khor Fakkan with two goals each, so the team lost two valuable points and retreated to fifth place with nine points, and the same is true for To the "pride of Abu Dhabi", who lost at home to Sharjah with a goal without a response, and his score stopped at eight points in seventh place.
