RAITH ROVERS V DUNFERMLINE
Raith Rovers are hoping to win again after their last result, the 3-2 Championship triumph over Partick Thistle.
For Raith Rovers, goals were scored by Dario Zanatta (22') and Kyle Benedictus (64', 78'). Brian Graham (86') and Zak Rudden (95') scored for Partick Thistle.
A common feature of recent Raith Rovers games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
Taking their prior six matches leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on BTTS would have lost.
In their last game, Dunfermline Athletic drew 0-0 in the Championship match with Hamilton Academical.

Previous results aside, we must now wait to see whether that trend might continue on in this upcoming game or not.
Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
AJMAN V SHARJAH
Ajman will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 0-2 Arabian Gulf League triumph against Baniyas.

Sharjah will come into the match following on from a 2-1 Arabian Gulf League win with the downing of Al-Jazira in their most recent outing.
In their last 6 outings, Sharjah have bagged the sum of 11 goals. Sharjah have additionally got on the scoresheet on each one of those occasions. During that period, they have seen 8 goals go against them. We will find out whether or not that trend will be sustained in this game.
