Damak vs Al Ittihad team news

Damak

Damak put in a top performance when they travelled to Al Fayha on the first of the month. Georges-Kevin Nkoudou scored twice as the visitors ran out 4-2 winners at the Al Majma'ah Sports City Stadium. Damak didn't pick up any fresh injury concerns or suspensions during that game but Assan Ceesay came off the bench to score in that game and will be hoping to have done enough to earn a starting role on Thursday.

Predicted Lineup: Al Mahasneh (GK), Chafaï, Bedrane, Al Anazi, Al Hawsawi, Antolić, Hamed, Stanciu, Al Shahrani, Nkoudou & Al Zain 

Al Ittihad

Al Ittihad were involved in a 4-2 victory of their own when they played host to Al Khaleej last time out. Karim Benzema converted a twenty-ninth-minute penalty in that win but had to be substituted shortly after and could now miss the trip to Damak. Saleh Al Amri only played the opening forty-five minutes before being substituted himself, so there are a couple of injury concerns for the visitors ahead of the Damak match.

Predicted Lineup: Grohe (GK), Hawsawi, Felipe, Al Shanqiti, Al Hawsawi, Coronado, Fabinho, Al Ghamdi, Al Sahafi, Al Obud & Hamed Allah

Player to Watch: Abderrazzaq Hamed Allah

Abderrazzaq Hamed Allah is going to have to attempt to fill the boots of Karim Benzema on Thursday should the French forward fail to come back from an injury in time to face Damak.

Hamed Allah is the second top goalscorer at Al Ittihad this season with seven goals, two behind Benzema. The Moroccan international is in very good form right now with seven goals in his last eight games for club and country, so you can see why we are backing the 32-year-old as our player to watch in this game.
