Al Nassr V Al Ahli: Preview
At the King Saud University Stadium on Friday night, Al-Nassr and Al-Ahli will square off in the Saudi Pro League’s penultimate encounter of game seven.
Al Ahli are in third place and just one point behind the early league leaders Al Hilal, while Al Nassr are now in sixth place with 12 points after six games.
Al-Nassr had a rocky start to the 2022–23 season, losing their first two games back-to-back. However, recently, they appear to have rediscovered their groove again.
They enter this match off a 2-0 victory over Iranian team Persepolis in their opening AFC Champions League game, which sent them to the top of Group E early in the league.
With that victory, Luis Castro’s team continued their impressive recent run of six straight victories across all competitions, scoring an astonishing 23 goals while only giving up four goals on the other end of the game.
Sadio Mane, Talisca, and Cristiano Ronaldo all scored in Al-Nassr’s 3-1 victory over Al Raed in their most recent league game, and Mohamed Fouzair added a late consolation goal in the dying seconds.
Despite where they now rank in the league, the home club has recently outperformed Al-Ahli, going undefeated in those three games while outscoring them 5-3.
Al-Ahli lost their first points of the season at the beginning of the month when they were unexpectedly destroyed 5-1 by Al Fateh, but they recovered well from that setback to defeat Al Taawoun last weekend.
In the opening five minutes, Abdulbasit Hindi gave his team the advantage before Waleed Al Ahmad scored an own goal to make it 2-0. However, after their opponents scored two quick goals, Allan Saint-Maximin scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal shortly after the hour mark.
Pitso Mosimane led the team to reclaim their place in the first division, and Matthias Jaissle has had an immediate influence on the team, winning five of his first six matches as manager.
After six games, the visitors’ defense will be a small concern because they have conceded nine goals, which is the second-highest total of any team in the top half of the standings.
The toughest test for the new manager has arrived, and it will be intriguing to see how his team performs against their flamboyant PIF-owned rivals.
The hosts will have to deal with a few injury absences, beginning with Ayman Yahya, who is battling a knee injury and is anticipated to be out for some time.
While Abdullah Madu is back in training, this game may have come too soon for him to return, therefore Talisca and Seko Fofana have been listed as questionable for this contest.
Abdullah Otayf, a guest, has been diagnosed with a ruptured cruciate ligament and will likely miss a significant portion of the season as a result.
In this encounter, Hindi will begin the first of a three-match suspension after receiving a straight red against Al Taawoun the previous week.
Al-Nassr possible starting lineup:
Alaqidi; Al Ghanam, Alamri, Laporte, Qassem; Al Khaibari, Brozovic, Mane, Otavio, Ghareeb; Ronaldo
Al-Ahli possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Majrashi, Ibanez, Al Hamad, Al Ammar; Al Majhad, Kessie, Mahrez, Veiga, Saint-Maximin; Firmino
Al Nassr V Al Ahli: Prediction
Here, we anticipate a high-caliber football match between two teams who have been predicted to contend for the championship this year. We believe Al Nassr will win this game because a few big Al-Ahli absences could be a deciding factor.
