Our prediction for this match:
UAE and Gambia face each other for the first time ever in a friendly international. The Sons of Zayed were producing fine displays in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, with the team setting up a meeting with Australia in the playoffs. Head coach Rodolfo Arruabarrena is likely to field the best possible side against Gambia as his men will not have any more warm-up games before the clash with the Socceroos.
The Scorpions, on the other hand, have not been in action since March 2022 when they outplayed Chad in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. Anyhow, UAE want this win more than Gambia, and we predict that the hosts are going to prove their worth on the field. A man to watch in the home team will be Caio Canedo, who has been scoring goals for fun with Al Ain of late.
