Al Raed

Al Raed picked up a big win in the context of their season at home against Al Wehda last weekend. Al Wehda were already a man down before Mohamed Fouzair converted a spot-kick shortly before the half-time whistle to hand the home side the lead, and Amir Sayoud made it 2-0 in the 68th minute, wrapping up the win for Al Raed.

Predicted Lineup: Moreira (GK), Al Jayzani, Gonzalez, Al Yousif, Al Rajeh, Sayoud, Fouzair, Normann, Loum, Al Subaie & El Berkaoui

Player to Watch: Franck Kessie

Franck Kessie showed his ability to score goals from midfield during his time at AC Milan where he once netted 13 times in a single Serie A campaign.

Since moving from Barcelona to Al Ahli, Kessie has scored five league goals in 15 starts in the Saudi Pro League, making him the club's second-top scorer behind Mahrez, who has six goals.

So far this season, Kessie has scored the first goal in three matches for Al Ahli so don't be surprised to see the Ivory Coast international score against Al Raed this weekend.
