Expert Betting Tips
Al Hilal will play some of their home games in Tanzania due to unrest in their country, and it’s unclear if they’ll get the same support from the fans. On the other hand, Esperance ST began their CAF journey with a comfortable victory over Etoile du Sahel and will come for a draw here. Al Hilal are at a disadvantage here as they won’t be able to have their own fans for this game; however, we think they’ll at least fight for a point. We expect this game to produce less than two goals for 1.50.
We expect both sides to settle for a halftime draw here for 1.89.
