Al Ittihad vs Al Raed team news

Al Ittihad

Al Ittihad ended up well beaten in their last league game away to Damak. The hosts took the lead early on but the teams looked like they were going to go in at the break level when Abderrazak Hamdallah equalised for Al Ittihad, only for Damak to score again a few minutes later. An early own goal in the second half seemed to break the spirits of the visitors as Damak ran out 3-1 winners.

Luiz Felipe has to be taken off in that game after just fifteen minutes and could now miss the match against Al Raed.

Predicted Lineup: Grohe (GK), Hawsawi, Kadesh, Al Shanqiti, Al Hawsawi, Coronado, Kanté, Fabinho, Al Sahafi, Al Amri & Hamed Allah

Al Raed

Al Raed's last league game also came against Damak and also ended in a defeat. This time, one goal proved enough for Damak to secure all three points, leaving Al Raed sitting second from bottom with thirteen points from their opening seventeen matches.

Júlio Tavares was taken off in that game with an injury and might not be available to face Al Ittihad this week.

Predicted Lineup: Moreira (GK),  Al Dossary, Al Jayzani, Gonzalez, Al Rajeh, Tavares, Fouzair, Normann, Loum, Al Subaie & El Berkaoui

Player to Watch: Igor Coronado

Igor Coronado has impressed this season for Al Ittihad, both creating and scoring goals regularly.

The Brazilian plays behind the main striker and has chipped in with five goals and five assists in the Saudi Pro League so far this season. This is Coronado's third season with Al Ittihad and he is only one goal behind his best-ever total for the Saudi club so it looks like the 31-year-old will go on to beat that total, possibly before the year ends.
