Al Ettifaq preview: Hoping to get a bit closer to the top

Steven Gerrard's side is having a bit of a disappointing season, considering the investments made, but despite rumours that followed them, it seems that the English manager will see out the season with the team. At the moment, Al Ettifaq are seventh in the standings and they've done well recently with three wins, two draws, and one loss in the last six games in the league.

Meanwhile, Robin Quaison remains on the sidelines with an injury.

Predicted LineupVictor – Abdulrahman, Khateeb, Hendry, Al Otaibi – Fofana, Medran, Wijnaldum – Gray, Dembele, Toko Ekambi

Al Wehda preview: Small risk of relegation still there

With just one win in their last nine games in the league, Al Wehda haven't been able to find their best form lately.

Overall, they sit in 12th place in the standings, seven points ahead of the relegation zone. So, with seven games left, it seems that Al Wehda will secure their place in the top flight of Saudi football for next season, but they could still get relegated if their poor form continues.

Predicted Lineup: Munir – Hawsawi, Al Hafith, El Yamiq, Al Muwallad – Fajr, Bakshween – Van Crooy, Anselmo, Noor – Ighalo

Player to watch: Moussa Dembele

The experienced French forward has been one of the key pieces of this Al Ettifaq squad, at least on the offensive end, and he has scored nine goals in the Saudi Pro League this season.

Can Dembele score two or more?

While nine goals in 20 appearances isn't truly eye-popping, Dembele still managed to score multiple goals twice this season in the Saudi Pro League. Can he repeat that against Al Wehda?
