Al Hilal have beaten Al Ittihad four times in a row and they only lost once to this opponent in their last 10 meetings. The situation is quite similar when looking at their overall H2H record – 26-13-8.

Al Ittihad preview: Hoping for a win to save the season

While Al Ittihad entered this season as one of the top favourites to win the title in Saudi Pro League, their results in the league have been disappointing, to say the least. After all, Al Ittihad is currently fourth in the league. So, it seems that the only way for them to save this season is to win AFC Champions League, which seems like a very long shot after their loss to Al Hilal in the first leg.

Meanwhile, Ahmed Bamsaud, Ahmed Sharahili, and Abdullah Al-Jadaani are all out with injuries at the moment, while there are also question marks on Benzema's health ahead of this game. On top of that, N'Golo Kante will miss this game after being sent off in the first leg.

Al Hilal preview: Keeping the dominance alive

We've already listed the impressive results and form that put Al Hilal in a position to fight for titles in both Saudi Pro League and AFC Champions League and at this point, it seems inevitable that they'll lift at least one trophy this season, but probably more than that.

The team is still without Neymar who is out for the season, but the rest of the squad is in good shape ahead of this game.

Predicted LineupBono – Abdulhamid, Koulibaly, Al-Bulaihi, N. Al-Dawsari – Milinkovic-Savic, Neves – Al-Faraj, Malcom, S. Al-Dawsari – Mitrovic

Player to watch: Aleksandar Mitrovic

The experienced Serbian striker has been one of the key players for Al Hilal this season, leading the team in scoring in both Saudi Pro League and AFC Champions League, with a total tally of 31 goals in 32 matches in all competitions.

Can Mitrovic score more than once?

Given his average of 0.97 goals per game this season, betting on Mitro to score is a pretty safe bet, but can he score two or more goals in this match? Well, Mitrovic scored only once in the first leg against Al Ittihad, but he did score a hat-trick against them earlier this season.
