Looking at these Al Ittihad vs Al Ettifaq odds, we can see that the hosts are the expected winners, though not by a huge margin. This is understandable given that Al Ittihad are ahead by nine points in the standings and are also hosting the match.

However, Al Ittihad will be without their top two goalscorers in this game, along with a few other important players and they've been struggling lately in the league.

So, this can be a very close and exciting duel. If you liked our predictions for it, make sure to also check out some of our favourite betting tips for today too.

Al Ittihad preview: Little hope left of making the AFC Champions League

After losing to Al Shabab and Abha in the last two rounds of Saudi Pro League, Al Ittihad's chances of finishing third and getting a place in the AFC Champions League for next season have seriously diminished. At this time, they are four points behind Al Ahli, with four games left to be played.

In addition to this, Al Ittihad are missing a lot of players through injuries, including their top two goalscorers Abderrazak Hamdallah and Karim Benzema. Furthermore, Fabinho, Ahmed Sharahili, Ahmed Bamasud, Madallah Al-Olayan, Luiz Felipe, Hamed Al-Ghamdi, Sultan Al-Farhan, and Omar Hawsawi are all on the team's injury list right now.

Predicted Lineup: Al-Mayouf – Al Yami, Al Mosa, Kadesh, Al Jaadi – F. Al-Ghamdi, Kante, A. Al-Ghamdi – Al-Amri, Romarinho, Jota

Al Ettifaq preview: Struggling to get wins

While Al Ettifaq have only lost twice in their last nine games in the league, they also only managed to win one of their last six matches, as most of their games have ended in draws. Overall, Al Ettifaq are eighth in the standings, which is a solid result, but certainly not where their manager Steven Gerrard wanted them to be at the end of the season.

On the bright side, Al Ettifaq enter this match with a clean bill of health.

Predicted LineupVictor – Al Shamrani, Madu, Hendry, Al Otaibi – Wijnaldum, Medran, Fofana – Gray, Dembele, Toko Ekambi

Player to watch: Moussa Dembele

The experienced French striker has 11 goals this season in the Saudi Pro League, making him Al Ettifaq's top scorer and our player to watch in this match.

Can Dembele score more than once?

We rarely saw Dembele score multiple goals in a game in the league this season. In fact, this only happened twice, but Dembele certainly has the quality to score more than once, even against a team like Al Ittihad.
