Al Hilal sit at the top of the table with a nine point lead

Al Riyadh have experienced a variety of outcomes recently, accumulating four points in the process. Initially, they faced a 2-0 defeat against Al Ittihad, followed by a 1-1 draw against Al-Raed. However, they secured a 1-2 victory in their latest encounter with Al Akhdoud. In their last six home matches in the Saudi Pro League, Al Riyadh managed two wins, three draws, and one loss, scoring four goals and conceding three.

On the other hand, Al Hilal are in impressive form with four consecutive victories. They began with a 3-1 triumph over Al-Raed, followed by a 0-2 win against Al-Ettifaq, a 3-1 victory over Al Ittihad, and a 2-0 victory against Al Ittihad again. Al Hilal have been dominant in their recent six away matches in the Saudi Professional League, securing six wins and conceding only one goal while finding the net 20 times.

Players to Watch

Andre Gray (Al Riyadh):

Gray stands out as a crucial player for Riyadh, particularly in the forward position. Renowned for his exceptional ball control and prowess in aerial duels, Gray serves as a linchpin for his team’s offensive efforts.

While predominantly reliant on his right foot, he demonstrates versatility by showcasing the ability to score proficiently with his weaker foot as well, adding an extra dimension to his goal-scoring capabilities. He has 5 goals in the Saudi Pro League.

Aleksander Mitrovic (Al Hilal):

Aleksandar Mitrovic stands out, displaying a mastery of holding possession with his back to the goal and adeptly positioning himself in key goal-scoring areas. His effectiveness in aerial duels, attributed to his physical strength and height, is widely recognized.

However, Mitrovic’s intelligence in crafting scoring opportunities in the vicinity of the penalty area is often undervalued. In the ongoing Saudi Pro League season, he has made noteworthy contributions, netting a total of 19 goals.
