Al Feiha vs Al Nassr: Predicted lineup, injury news, head-to-head, telecast
Two Saudi clubs battle for the quarterfinal spot
Al Feiha are struggling at the moment with the team languishing in the 14th position in the Saudi Pro League with two points separating the side from relegation. As Rasovic’s side is about to enter an important second half of the season after suffering four consecutive defeats, the mid-season break has come at an important time. Despite this, they finished second in group A of the AFC Championship League, demonstrating that they are capable of putting up a good fight against anyone they face.
The Riyadh Seasons Cup was a great experience for Luis Castro, but his team lost the final to arch rivals Al Hilal. This match will be crucial for him to see what his team can do to bounce back from the defeat and focus on winning this important match with the AFC Champions League at stake. However, Al Nassr are also doing well in the league, occupying second place behind Al Hilal with seven points separating them. Following their Kings Cup victory, Ronaldo and co will be aiming for more silverware this season.
