Free Al Hilal vs Al Merreikh Predictions by Football Whispers

Al Hilal and Al Merreikh have struggled to get some points in the ongoing CAF Champions League. The hosts are especially most affected by a poor run of form that has seen them get rooted to the bottom of the Group A table with only a point after three games. Two points adrift third-placed Al Merreikh means there is all to play for in this match. Our best predictions for the CAF Champions League game are as follows:

One-sided score

This will not be an easy game for both teams. A point from three games for the hosts and four points from as many matches for Al Merreikh leaves the third place open for grabs between these teams. A more defensive approach is, therefore, expected from both teams. These are familiar foe in the Sudan’s Premier League so a hard-fought game that will likely end square or have goals on one side is a good bet.

Under 2.5

Our second pick for Al Hilal vs Al Merreikh backs fewer goals in the important game. It is a do-or-die for these teams as they look to secure playoffs points. The hosts are the last and need a win to catch up with the visitors on the Group A table while victory for Al Merreikh could see them displace Al Ahly from second place. We expect the tough match to end with a few goals.
