The away team, on the other hand, travels to Riyadh still in pursuit of their first three Saudi Pro League points.

With a 1-0 victory in Friday’s match at the Al Majma’ah Sports City, Al Shabab narrowly defeated the threat of Al Feiha.

Al Shabab vs Al Hazem: H2H

The challenge of a rival squad that has lost each of the past eight encounters between the teams since 2011 is what lies in store next.

The hosts on Thursday will be anxious to avoid consecutive losses in front of their supporters for the first time since May after recently suffering their first home setback in seven games.

In a Saturday afternoon 1-1 tie with Al Tai at the Al-Hazem Club Stadium, Al Hazem was forced to settle for a share of the points.

The team of Filipe Gouveia went behind after Bernard Mensah scored the game’s first goal, but Toze tied the score from the penalty spot just before halftime.

Al Hazem remains at the bottom of the standings, one point outside of safety, with three points amassed from twice as many games thus far.

The visitors on Thursday came here to establish an early presence ahead of a crucial cup match against Al Arabi three days later.

Team News

Since he was dismissed in the dying moments of Al Shabab’s defeat to Al Feiha the previous time, Nader Al-Sharari will not participate for Al Shabab here.

Iago Santos is mainly anticipated to replace Al-Sharari in the starting lineup despite missing the aforementioned game due to an injury.

After making a memorable start for the home team and scoring the game-winning goal, Romain Saiss will be eager to deliver once more.

Basil Al Sayyali of Al Hazem is questionable for this match after being pulled off less than an hour into the draw against Al Taee due to an injury scare.

Kim; Al Harbi, Saiss, Al-Sharari, Al Saqour; Cuellar, Banega, Al Qahtani; Carrasco, Bahbri, Diallo
