Despite their league setbacks, Marcelo Gallardo’s side remains hopeful of reaching the semi-finals of King Cup

Al-Faisaly are doing well in Division 1 with the team 10 points shy of the leaders. After losing to Al-Najma, they have won two and drawn one of their last three matches to collect seven points. In order to advance to the semi-finals, the team will have to be at their best against Al-Ittihad.

With half of the season gone, Al-Ittihad are struggling to gain a foothold in the league. They face an uphill task to finish in a strong position this season. Since signing for the club, Marcelo Gallardo has found life difficult in Al-Ittihad colour with the team losing the last three matches and have just one win in last five matches. However, he will aim to have a good run in the cup matches. 

Kick-Off:

Sunday, 4 February 2024 at 8:45 PM IST

Location: Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium

Form:

Al-Faisaly (in all competitions): W-W-D-L-D

Al-Ittihad (in all competitions): L-L-L-W-L

Player to Watch

Lucas Souza (Al-Faisaly)

Al-Faisaly will be hoping that Lucas Souza plays a key role in their progress in the Kings Cup after impressing in the last round against Al-Najma, where he netted a brace and created two big chances for his teammates, but was unable to assist them. 

Abderrazak Hamdallah (Al-Ittihad) 

From 14 matches, the Morocco International has scored ten goals and provided two assists for Al-Ittihad this season. In a season where much of the headlines were about Karim Benzema, he has outperformed him to become the top scorer. Marcelo Gallardo hopes he can provide the goals for the team going forward.
