For both teams to finish fourth, this match is crucial

Al Ittihad have endured a mixed start so far with the team failing to defend their title. As of now, they are fourth in the table, on points with Al Taawoun. This match will be crucial to determining who finishes fourth. Consistency has been a major issue for the team as they have not performed consistently. They have won three of their last four matches, with Al Ahli being their only defeat. 

The Saudi Pro League’s surprise package this season is Al Taawoun, with some impressive results on the road this season. They are currently 5th in the table and have shown remarkable character this season. After going 2-0 in the last match, they made an impressive comeback to win the tie 2-3 against Al Taee. Currently, the team is unbeaten in three matches. 

Kick-Off:

Sat, 6 April at 12:30 AM IST

Location- King Abdullah Sports City

Form:

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

Player to Watch

Abderrazak Hamdallah (Al Ittihad)

Hamdallah has been in terrific form for Al Ittihad this season scoring 18 goals and providing 3 assists for his teammates. Benzema is currently struggling in the final third, and he has taken on that scoring burden on his own. His clinical finishing is one of his most outstanding qualities in the final third. He is also excellent at holding up play and making room for his teammates. In the upcoming matches, he is likely to be a key player. 

Joao Pedro (Al Taawoun)

The experienced 30-year-old, who has been playing a crucial role in the absence of Barrow, is leading the Al Taawoun charts this season. He has scored nine goals for his side this season and helped them win the last match against Al Taee. He does more than score goals; he also holds up play with his physique to win duels and release pressure on the team upfront.
