Saudi Pro League: Al Okhdoud vs Al Ittihad HIGHLIGHT | Date: September 14, 2023 | Time: 23:30 Hrs. | Location:Prince Hathloul Bin Abdulaziz Sport City Stadium, Najran, Saudi Arabia
Karim Benzema scored the game-winning goal to give Al-Ittihad a vital victory away from home, proving why he is regarded as one of the top attackers in the league.
In Najran, the Tigers defeated a tenacious Al-Akhdoud team 1-0. However, the Ittihad captain, who is regarded as one of the biggest names in football, was the one who made the difference.
After latching onto Haroune Camara’s tempting pass in the area, chipping over a committed defender, and kneeing the ball past a flailing Paulo Vitor in the Akhdoud goal, the Frenchman’s goal-poaching senses were on high alert.
Al-Ittihad overtook Al-Hilal at the top of the SPL with the victory. If Hilal defeats Al-Riyadh on Friday, they might reclaim first place.
In the early stages of a significantly enhanced SPL, Ittihad, the current league champions, and Hilal, the most decorated team in Asia, are clearly the front-runners.
