Al Hilal vs Al Ahli: Preview
Al-Hilal and Al-Ahli’s clash at the King Fahd International Stadium on Friday night is one of the most anticipated games of gameweek 11.
The league season has begun, and both teams have looked extremely promising. With 26 points, the home team is already leading the standings, four points ahead of the visitors.
Al-Hilal, who placed third the previous season, has started this season stronger than the others and, after ten games, has a three-point lead over Al Taawon in second place.
In the AFC Champions League, Jorge Jesus’s team maintained their lead in Group D by defeating Mumbai City, a team from the Indian Super League, 6-0 at home in midweek.
In that game, Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a hat-trick, his sixth goal in his previous five games. With seven goals, he currently shares second place in the league’s scoring standings.
The fact that the hosts defeated their opponent 4-2 in their previous meeting will give them confidence even if they know this will not be an easy matchup. A victory here would also give them a sizable lead over one of the teams that was predicted to contend for the championship.
Al-Ahli, on the other hand, will enter this game full of confidence having defeated Al-Ittihad 1-0 just before the break and then convincingly defeating Al Wehda 3-1 the previous weekend.
After scoring goals against Al Wehda, Allan Saint-Maximin, Riyad Mahrez, and Roger Ibanez put the visitors’ record this season at seven victories, one tie, and two losses in ten games—with 20 goals scored and 14 given up—into the books.
Even though they would have preferred to be a little higher in the standings, Matthias Jaissle’s team will be aware of the benefit of not competing in continental competition, particularly as the season’s peak approaches.
The Royals’ prospects of winning the championship in their first season back in the top division will mostly depend on their capacity to defeat opponents like Al-Hilal, against whom they have lost their last four games (W0 D2 L2).
Al-Ahli is not out of this one just yet, even if the hosts have the better record thus far this season. The visitors will start this game as the underdogs.
Neymar is the only player injured for Jesus in this game. He is out for the foreseeable future due to a major cruciate ligament tear.
With Salem Al-Dawsari, Malcom, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, and Mitrovic in the lead, the team will probably continue to attack as Salman Al Faraj serves the last game of his three-match ban. Mitrovic is currently enjoying a winning streak.
The defensive tandem of Abdullah Otayf (cruciate ligament tear) and Merih Demiral (meniscus) will be sidelined for Jaissle with their respective injuries.
Ezgjan Alioski, a former defender for Leeds United, is not eligible to be selected, so the defensive line-up should consist of Abdullah Al-Ammar, Ibanez, Abdulbasit Hindi, and Bassam Al-Hurayji.

Al Hilal vs Al Ahli: Prediction
Although the hosts have already scored a lot of goals this season, the majority of those goals have come from away from home, where they appear to have chosen to stick to their defensive strengths and finish games quietly. Although we think Al-Hilal will win and stay atop the standings, this should be a fascinating game.
