Al Ettifaq – Al Ittihad preview – Recent form, news, and probable lineups

Read the latest news and updates about these two teams, including the most likely Al Ettifaq vs Al Ittihad lineups.

Al Ettifaq

Steven Gerrard's team hasn't been in great form recently since they've only managed to win once in their last six matches in the league, along with a couple of losses and three draws. Overall, Al Ettifaq is 7th in the standings, but they are also just three points behind Al Hilal in 3rd place, so things aren't that bleak after all. When it comes to team news, Al Ettifaq are without injured Moussa Dembele, the team's top scorer this season.

Al Ettifaq predicted lineup:

Victor – Khateeb, Tisserand, Hendry, Abdulrahman – Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mahzari – Al Ghamdi, Gray, Al Kuwaykibi

Al Ittihad

Things haven't been going well at Al Ittihad for a while now and the defending champions of Saudi Arabia had to make some serious changes. As usual, that meant parting ways with their manager Nuno Espirito Santo. While their interim manager did notch a win in the last round, Al Ittihad was quick in appointing a new full-time manager, Argentinian Marcelo Gallardo. Gallardo will have to deal with a few injury problems on his debut, including being without N'Golo Kante, along with Abdullah Al-Jadani, Aseel Abed, Saleh Al Amri, and Sultan Al-Farhan.

Al Ittihad predicted lineup:

Grohe – Al-Shanqeeti, Felipe, Kadesh, Hawsawi – Al-Olayan, Fabinho, Al-Ghamdi – Romarinho, Coronado, Benzema

Starting lineups

Check the starting lineups an hour before the kickoff.

Player to watch: Karim Benzema

The former Ballon d'Or winner has struggled a bit this season, but perhaps there were some truths to those reports about Benzema not getting along well with the team's coach Nuno Espirito Santo. After all, in the first game since Espirito Santo left the club, Karim Benzema scored a hat-trick. With that in mind, he is our player to watch in this game.
