Al Hilal vs Al Shabab Preview
When Al-Hilal hosts Al Shabab on Friday, they will be looking to maintain their stunning undefeated start to the Saudi Pro League.
Although the visitors are now in 11th place and are behind the hosts, who are currently second in the standings, they do have a winning streak of three games in a row in all competitions.
Al-Hilal has had an outstanding start to the 2023–24 season, and as a result, they enter the weekend in second place, just one point behind Al Ittihad, the league’s current leaders.
The only team to have done so after the first seven games is Jorge Jesus’ squad, which has managed to lead them to an undefeated start in the league.
There has been a lot for the supporters to enjoy with five wins and two draws, especially at home where Al-Hilal has been offensively dominant, scoring nine goals in three games.
Jesus will want to see a difference because Al-Hilal’s goal threat has decreased significantly over the past three games, where they have only scored one goal each time.
In their most recent match, a 1-0 victory over Al Jabalain in the King Cup of Champions, Ruben Neves managed to score the game’s only goal. However, now the attention will turn back to league football.
Yannick Carrasco scored a brace, and the visitors recently advanced to the next round of the King Cup of Champions after coming from behind to upset Al Batin 2-1 with the winner coming in the 118th minute.
That triumph was Al Shabab’s third straight triumph across all competitions, giving them some solid momentum going into this specific match.
After the first seven games, Juan Brown’s team has a mixed record with two wins, three draws, and three losses, placing them in the middle of the standings.
Al Shabab has had more difficulty traveling this season, especially offensively, since they have only scored twice in three away games.
The club should, however, have more confidence in front of the goal after scoring six goals in only their last two games, which they must now apply to their performances away from home.
Aleksandar Mitrovic, a former Fulham striker who has been with the team since signing, ought to be the one to lead the line for the hosts.
Neymar’s inclusion in the starting XI will probably be in doubt, but Neves should also find himself back in the middle of the pitch.
The Brazilian was absent from their most recent King Cup of Champions game and has been in the news denying that he tried to get Jesus fired.
Iago Santos should keep his spot in the team after returning to the Al Shabab back four this past weekend after missing the prior game due to injury.
Following a remarkable individual performance in the King Cup of Champions, in which he scored a brace, Carrasco is also anticipated to preserve his spot.
Al Hilal vs Al Shabab: Prediction
Al Shabab enters this game with a strong run of results, which should inspire them to play with confidence and give opponents trouble.
Al-Hilal should, however, have too much talent in this specific game because they are the clear favorites to win all three points.
