Al Wahda have agreed to play their President's Cup semi-final against Al Shabab one day later to May 6, following a request from the Dubai club.

Shabab travel to Tashkent for a meeting with Pakhtakor in the Asian Champions League.

The new date will also provide Josef Hickersberger, who took charge of Wahda last night, an extra day to prepare.
