Hot Tip – Over 2.5 Goals

  • Four of the last five encounters between Al Ittifaq and Al Hazm have produced over 2.5 goals.
  • Al Hazm have lost 4-0 and 9-0 in two of their last five league games.

Al Ittifaq vs Al Hazm team news

Al Ittifaq

Al Ittifaq made the trip to Al Nassr last time out losing the game 3-1 in the end. Al Nassr went three goals up before Mohammed Al Kuwaykibi scored a consolation goal for the visitors in the eighty-fifth minute. but more is expected of Al Ittifaq on Thursday against the division's bottom side.

Ahmed Al Ghamdi only lasted four minutes against Al Nassr before being substituted and isn't expected to play against Al Hazm but could be replaced by his brother Hamed Al Ghamdi.

Predicted Lineup: Victor (GK), Tisserand, Hendry, Khateeb, Abdulrahman, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Hazzazi, H. Al Ghamdi, Quaison & Dembélé

Al Hazm

Al Hazm were well beaten at home by Al Ahli in their last league game, going down 4-0 in the end. Losing Rayan Al Mousa to injury early on didn't help the home side but they can't blame their 4-0 drubbing purely on one injury.

Mohammed Abusabaan replaced the injured Al Mousa in that heavy defeat and looks set to start against Al Ittifaq on Thursday.

Predicted Lineup: Dahmen (GK), Al Bakr, Ricardo, Viana, Qasheesh, Tozé, Abusabaan, Traoré, Selemani, Al Thani & Badamosi

Player to Watch: Georginio Wijnaldum

Dutch international Georginio Wijnaldum adds a level of quality to the Al Ittifaq side that Al Hazm just can't compete with. We're backing the veteran Dutch midfielder to run the show from the centre of the park on Thursday, guiding Al Ittifaq to all three points.

The former Liverpool, PSG, and Newcastle star has netted five goals in the Saudi Pro League this season, returning to his best days lately at PSV and in his one season with Newcastle where he scored into double figures for each club.

Wijnaldum, 33, simply has to be our player to watch on Thursday as he will likely be the most talented player on the pitch and someone who should run the show.
