With four wins in the last five duels with Al Khaleej, Al Nassr have clearly been the better team of the two in recent years. The situation is the same when we look at the overall H2H record between these teams: 7-5-1 in favour of Al Nassr.

Al Nassr preview: Cup their only chance for a trophy?

While Al Nassr's chances of catching up to Al Hilal still exist, it's unlikely that Ronaldo and company can make up a nine point deficit in the remaining five rounds So, Al Nassr might be looking at another season without a trophy unless they can go all the way in the King Cup. Luckily for them, they have a relatively easy matchup in the semi-finals, so we should be seeing them in the final match.

However, Al Nassr will once again miss Talisca as he recovers from an injury. Also, Cristiano Ronaldo is in danger of missing the final if he gets booked against Al Khaleej.

Predicted Lineup: Ospina – Alamri, Laporte, Fatil – Telles, Brozovic, Khaibari, Ghanam – Mane, Otavio – Ronaldo

Al Khaleej preview: Hoping for a historic success

While Al Khaleej have been founded nearly 80 years ago, they've never made the cup final. In fact, even making the semi-finals is already historic for this team, but their fans are certainly hoping for a surprise on Wednesday. Al Khaleej enter this match in solid form, with just tow losses in their last nine games, but they've also only won three times in that span.

Al Khaleej enter this match with a clean bill of health.

Predicted Lineup – Sehic – Hamsal, Khabrani, Masoud, Rebocho – Hamzi, Jung, Rodrigues – Narey, Sherif, Martins

Player to watch: Cristiano Ronaldo

The 39-year-old Portuguese legend still has plenty of gas left in his tank, as we're seeing this season. After all, Ronaldo is Al Nassr's top scorer with 36 goals in all competitions.

Ronaldo to score more than once?

This season, Ronaldo has scored more than one goal on eight occasions already, which is why he's a good choice to bet on to score two or more goals.
