Abha preview: On their way to the Division 1?

At the moment, Abha are only ahead of Al Hazem in the standings. With three teams about to be relegated this season to Division 1, Abha is clearly one of the main candidates, especially if we look at their recent form and three losses in the last four games. On the other hand, Abha are still just three points behind the first team in the safe zone, so they still have a solid chance to avoid relegation.

When it comes to team news, Marcel Tisserand and Zakaria Al-Sudani are out with injuries ahead of this match.

Al Ittihad preview: Still in purist of the AFC Champions League spot

After losing to Al Hilal in the semi-finals of the Saudi King Cup, Al Ittihad will definitely end the season without winning a trophy. Will their season be a complete disaster depends on their ability to secure a top three finish in the league, which would give them a place in the AFC Champions League next season. Right now, Al Ittihad are fifth, two points behind Al Ahli in third, who also have a game in hand.

Al Ittihad are dealing with injuries to some of their key players, such as Fabinho, Karim Benzema, Sultan Al Farhan, Luiz Felipe, and Zakaria Al Hawsawi, although they are only listed as doubtful for now. Meanwhile, Abdullah Al-Jadani, Ahmed Bamsaud, and Ahmed Mohammed Sharahili are definitely out.

Predicted Lineup: Al Muaiouf – Kadesh, Hegazy, Al-Mousa, Al Yami – F. Al-Ghamdi, Kante, Nashri – A. Al-Ghamdi, Hamadallah, Al-Sahafi
