Latakia's derby may take place without the presence of spectators, but it is still the event that monopolizes the sports, and not only, news in Syria but also elsewhere. Even former Real Madrid star Miguel Salgado sent his best wishes to Houtin! https://www.facebook.com/HutteenSportClub/videos/939926083119012/
In Tishrin they do not want to repeat last year's suicide of the last games and of course they know very well that the third championship in their history goes through today's game, as if they keep the difference of 4b from 2η Watthaba enters with a serious advantage in the final straight.
On the other hand, Houtin cut the chances for a title, as after the defeat in Alepo (the only one in the last 13) she remained at 3η position, 7b away from the top. Of course, he does not manage to cover the difference, but it is certain that he will try on the one hand to keep himself in the race and, on the other hand, to cut the "lucky" of the helpless fellow citizen!
But beyond all motivation, because the capacity differences are not obvious and because we are talking about a huge derby with a special psychology, the odds should be much more balanced.
