Radoi revealed that he is aware of the atmosphere at Za’abeel because he played a lot in this stadium, and added: I know Al Wasl Stadium well and its strength lies in its fierce fans who do not stop encouraging throughout the 90 minutes without stopping, and their chanting often led Al Wasl to achieve victories.
“Al Wasl have the best attack in the league this season, the second best defense, and they play with balance in defense and attack, so they are in first place.
Radoi said that Al Wasl has not tasted the taste of loss so far for eight rounds, and he hoped that they would receive the honor of the first team to win against him, but he returned and stressed that this thing will not be achieved easily and that the match will not be easy.
He added: “Al Wasl plays a good image at home and revives possession of the ball and they have the ability to create chances against any team they play against.
