Al Shabab vs Al Shorta match information

Time: 00:00 (GMT+8) on December 24th

Venue: Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium

‎‎Competition: Arab Club Championship

In the quarter-finals of the 2019/20 Arab Club Championship, Al Shabab will meet the Iraqi club Al Shorta. Although it will be likely a very difficult match for coach Jorge Almiron and his players, Al Shabab has all the conditions to win the first-leg match.

Compared to the Iraqi League champion, they have the advantage to recruit many foreign players. One of the most impressive members in their squad is Alfred N'Diaye, the former footballer of English club Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Unlike Al Shabab, Al Shorta has not had a good form since the 2019/20 season started. They currently stand at the mid-table, with four points in three matches.

Moreover, due to the fact that the Iraqi League was affected by the civil war, they did not have any time to train properly. As a result, when Iraqi clubs play at the international competitions, they usually play in the third country instead of playing at their home ground.

It will be not a surprise if Al Shabab takes advantage of playing at the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium to gain a victory in the first-leg match.

By doing that, they will have more chance to aim for becoming the champion of the 2019/20 Arab Club Championship, their first title in six years.
