Al Hilal preview: Close to clinching the title

The impressive season by Al Hilal continues as the team enter this match after another win over Al Ittihad, this time in the semi-final of the Saudi King Cup. So, Al Hilal remain with just one loss this entire season in all competitions, although that loss cost them a lot since it led to them being eliminated from the AFC Champions Cup. Nevertheless, Al Hilal are on course of winning every other trophy this season.

Meanwhile, Aleksandar Mitrovic, the team's top scorer, returned in the match with Al Ittihad after a while on the sidelines with an injury. However, Al Hilal remain without Neymar and will also miss Sergej Milinkovic-Savic through suspension. Also, Nasser Al-Dawsari is listed as doubtful for this game.

Predicted Lineup – Bounou – Abdulhamid, Koulibaly, Al Bulaihi, Al-Shahrani – Neves, Kanno – Michael, Maicon, Al Tambakti – Mitrovic

Player to watch: Aleksandar Mitrovic

If Al Taawon want to have any hope of a good result in this match, they have to find a way to stop the Serbian forward. After all, Mitrovic has scored 22 goals in the league this season and after missing some time with an injury, he's back with the team now.

Will we see another goal from the spot for Mitrovic?

Nine of the 22 goals that Mitrovic scored this season in the Saudi Pro League have come after penalty kicks, so if Al Taawon give him a chance, there's a high chance he'll convert it.
