Find out the latest information on both of these teams right here, including our predicted Abha vs Al Akhdoud lineups:
After 6 matches in the league in which they failed to beat anyone, Abha finally ended this streak with a win over Al Shabab at home. In fact, all of Abha's wins this season in Saudi Pro League have come at home. On top of this win, Abha also shocked everyone by beating Al Ahli in King Cup, despite playing away from home and despite Al Sudani being sent off when the game was tied. So, we could be seeing Abha do much better in upcoming weeks based on their last two performances.
Abha Predicted Lineups:
Tatarusanu – Al Qumayazi, Noguera, Natiq, Al Oufi – Krychowiak, Al Sudani – Toko Ekambi, Bguir, Jumayah – Abdu
In the last 6 games in Saudi Pro League, Al Akhdoud have lost 5. On the bright side, they at least managed to win a game in that period, beating Al Raed a few rounds ago. That being said, Al Akhdoud have clearly struggled this season overall as they are currently in the relegation zone with 7 points from 11 games.
Al Akhdoud predicted lineup:
Vitor – Al Zabdani, Kvirkvelia, Burca, Khamis – Al Muwallad, Pedroza – Collado, Saviour, Tanase – Tawamba

Player to watch: Karl Toko Ekambi
Since this is a very close matchup between two teams of similar quality, it will take a great performance by one of the players to put one team ahead and we can see that being Karl Toko Ekambi. The experience Cameroonian forward scored 3 goals for Abha in the league so far and he is one of their key offensive weapons.
