Abha vs Al Ahli Lineups and Last Match

Abha

Abha made the trip to Damak on Saturday hoping to secure the win that would take them above their hosts in the Saudi Pro League table. However, for a second game on the run, Abha were defeated 4-2 and the gap between these two clubs was extended to five points. Abha defender Ahmad Jamal was given his marching orders early in the second half after he was shown a second yellow card and will now miss the game against Al Ahli.

Predicted Lineup – Tătărușanu (GK), Al Qumayzi, Noguera, Al Oufi, Al Kunaydiri, Matić, Krychowiak, Al Sudani, Bguir, Jumayah & Toko Ekambi

Al Ahli

Al Ahli would have been expecting a win in their last home game against Al Shabab but neither side managed to carve out a single goal at the Prince Abdullah al-Faisal Stadium and the game ended goalless. Results like this are costing Al Ahli this season and perhaps show just why they are not quite ready to challenge for the title just yet.

Predicted Lineup – Mendy (GK), Al Ammar, Hindi, Ibañez, Al Hurayji, Kessié, Al Majhad, Veiga, Mahrez, Saint-Maximin & Al Brikan

Player to Watch: Riyad Mahrez

Al Ahli's most impressive summer signing, Riyad Makrez from Machester City, has been their standout player so far this season.

Mahrez top scores for Al Ahli in the Saudi Pro League with five goals, ahead of Frank Kessie and Roberto Firmino. The Algerian midfielder has provided the creative spark in this Al Ahli team with no less than seven assists in the league alone this season.

We're backing Mahrez to impress once again for Al Ahli as they look to make a return to winning ways on Thursday.
