In the last five meetings with Al Hazem, Al Ittihad have two wins, Al Hazem one, along with two draws. However, the situation is more lopsided when it comes to the overall H2H record—13-4-1 in favour of Al Ittihad.

Al Hazem preview: On their way to the Division 1

With just 16 points from 27 matches, Al Hazem are currently last in the standings in Saudi Pro League and nine points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone. So, they still have a theoretical chance of survival with seven games left in the season, but Al Hazem haven't won in 11 straight games in the league and it's hard to envision a scenario in which they avoid relegation this year.

Al Ittihad preview: Chasing a spot in the AFC Champions League

After entering the season as defending champions that also signed Karim Benzema and N'golo Kante, another title run was expected from Al Ittihad. However, they have disappointed so far and are currently sitting in fifth place in the standings, five points behind Al Ahli in third, which provides a place in the AFC Champions League for next season.

When it comes to team news, Abdullah Al-Jadani, Ahmed Bamasud, and Ahmed Sharahili are all out with injuries.

Predicted Lineup: Al-Maiouf – Al Yami, Felipe, Hegazy, Alolayan – Al Shamrani, Kante, Romarinho, Jota – Hamdallah, Benzema

Player to watch: Karim Benzema

While he's far from the form when he won Ballon d'Or, Benzema is still a great player and he showed it in the Saudi Pro League this season with nine goals and seven assists in 20 appearances.

Can Benzema be the first goalcorer?

As we mentioned above, Benzema has scored nine goals in the league so far and he did so in seven matches. Of those seven matches, he was the first goalscorer five times, so he's clearly a good choice to open the game against Al Hazem too.
