Al Wehda vs Al Ettifaq: Preview

Al Wahda and Al Ettifaq will play in the Saudi Pro League’s final gameweek 11 match on Saturday night at the King Abdulaziz Stadium in Mecca.

Both teams need to win this game because they have lost their last three games, are in the middle of the table, and are gradually slipping behind the teams at the top of the standings.

Despite only having 13 points from their first 10 games this season, Al Wahda will probably be happy with their return given that they just missed being relegated the previous season.

The hosts enter this game coming off a 3-1 loss to Al Ahli, their third game without a win in a row after losing 5-1 to Al Fateh and drawing 1-1 with Al Fayha before the international break.

News: Saudi Pro League

The Knights of Mecca were completely outclassed in their most recent game and were only able to register a point thanks to an own goal by Abdulbasit Hindi. They were also reduced to 10 men just before the end of play when Ala Al Hajji received a straight red card.

Georgios Donis’ team has, nevertheless, performed admirably at home this season, winning three of their last five games there, drawing their most recent one, and only losing once.

Based on their recent performance, the hosts would probably be the happier of these sides if this match ended level as well. The last time these sides faced off, Al Wahda managed a point with a 1-1 draw.

Al Ettifaq, meanwhile, had a great start to the season, defeating Al-Nassr and Al Hazm in their opening two games. However, of late, their play has declined, and they will be looking to turn things around in this one.

After losing 2-1 to Al Fateh before the break and drawing 0-0 with Al Ahli at the end of the previous month, the visitors’ most recent game ended in a 1-0 loss to Al Riyadh. They entered this match with 17 points, five fewer than the top three teams.

The main problem for Steven Gerrard’s team lately has been their road performance; in their last four games, they have only won one and have failed to score in three.

They will, nevertheless, be confident in their chances against this opponent, with whom they have won one, drawn two, and outscored 3-2 in their previous three meetings.
