Al-Wehda vs Al-Nassr lineups and latest team news
Al-Wehda have been punching above their weight thus far as one of the clubs who haven't received backing from the Saudi PIF. They started strongly but recently enjoyed a five-match winless streak which they managed to overcome last time out when they defeated Al Hazem 2-1.
The biggest challenge for the side on Saturday will be stopping the firepower that Al Nassr have at their disposal. Cristiano Ronaldo is the obvious concern however they will also need to be wary of Sadio Mane. At the other end of the pitch, former Manchester United striker Ighalo will be tasked with scoring should an opportunity come his way.
Munir – Al Muwallad, Al Hafith, Duarte, Hawsawi – Anselmo, Fajr – Van Crooij, Goodwin, Al Eisa – Ighalo
Al Nassr are one of the most feared teams in Saudi Arabia and for good reason. They are a side stacked with some of the most recognisable names in football and they are all available for this ones. Cristiano Ronaldo will lead the line, Brozovic will control the midfield while Al-Wehda will need to find a way past Aymeric Laporte at the back.
Al Aqidi – Al Khaibari, Al Amri, Laporte, Telles – Brozovic, Fofana – Ghareeb, Otavio, Mane – Ronaldo
The starting lineups will be officially confirmed an hour before kick off.
