Hot Tip – Al Ahli to Win-to-Nil

  • Al Ahli have won four of their last six encounters with Al Hazm.

Al Hazm vs Al Ahli team news

Al Hazm

Al Hazm picked up a point away at one of their rivals near at the bottom of the table, Abha. The pair played out a goalless first half and it wasn't until the sixty-fourth minute that Al Hazm broke the deadlock via a Faiz Selemani effort. Sadly for the visitors, they couldn't hold onto their lead, conceding a seventy-ninth-minute equaliser to make the final scoreline 1-1.

Mohammed Al Thani was taken off late on against Abha but is expected to be fit to play against Al Ahli on Friday.

Predicted Lineup: Dahmen (GK), Al Bakr, Ricardo, Viana, Al Mhemaid, Qasheesh, Vina, Tozé, Al Mousa, Selemani & Al Thani

Al Ahli

Al Ahli strolled to a 4-0 victory at the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium last time out. Feras Al Brikan set the tone of the evening with an eleventh-minute opener and soon after, Ali Majrashi made it 2-0. Al Brikan scored his second goal of the game on the half-hour mark and a Riyad Mahrez penalty in the forty-third minute wrapped up the points for Al Ahli before the half-time whistle even sounded.

Roberto Firmino and Merih Demiral came off the bench in this game and are in contention to start against Al Hazm on Friday.

Predicted Lineup: Mendy (GK), Ibañez, Majrashi, Yaslam, Demiral, Kessié, Al Majhad, Veiga, Mahrez, Saint-Maximin & Firmino

Player to Watch: Riyad Mahrez

The Former Leicester City and Man City attacker has been in top form for Al Ahli this season.

The Algerian star leads the way on both goals and assists for Al Ahli in the Saudi Pro League with his penalty last time out taking him onto seven league goals for the campaign.

We're expecting Mahrez to shine against the division's worst club, a club that have only picked up twelve points this season and have a goal difference of -24.
