Saudi Pro League: Preview Al Riyadh vs Damac | Date: December 28, 2023 | Time: 20:30 Hrs. | Location: Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Preview Al Riyadh vs Damac
On Thursday, Al-Riyadh and Damac, an away team, will play in the Professional League at Prince Turki bin Abdul Aziz Stadium.
After losing 3-1 to Al-Wahda in their most recent Professional League match, Al-Riyadh will be looking for a better outcome.
Al-Riyadh had 55% possession in that game, and 6 of their 11 shots on goal were on target. Eight of Al-Wehda’s ten attempts on goal were on target. Al-Wahda’s goals came from Jawad El Yamiq (36′), Craig Goodwin (82′), and Odion Ighalo (90′).
In their last few games, Al-Riyadh’s attacking play has been lacking. Over their last six games, their goal total against opposing opponents is just 4. Al-Riyadh has also allowed seven goals to be scored against them in those contests. All we can do now is see if this tendency can continue in this particular match.
Damac will enter this game having defeated Al-Tai 3-0 in their previous Professional League encounter.
Damac had 47% possession in that game, and 9 of their 25 shots on goal were on target. Nicolae Stanciu (90′) and Farouk Chafa (57′, 85′) were the scorers for Damac. Al-Tai, on the other hand, had two of his seven shots on goal hit on target.
Damac has helped themselves to a total of 17 goals in their last six meetings. Damac has also been able to score in every one of those contests. Their defenders have watched seven goals go into their net during that time.
The two teams’ most recent league matchup was on Professional League Match Day 2 on August 17, 2023, with Damac defeating Al-Riyadh 2-2 in the end. Read more
With a healthy bunch to select from, the Damac manager has zero concerns about his fitness ahead of this encounter.
Al Riyadh vs Damac: Prediction
It’s hard to declare a clear winner in this situation, but Damac and Al-Riyadh should both be able to find the back of the goal when everything is taken into consideration.
Although a draw seems like a likely outcome, we’ll have to wait and see. As a result, we predict that this game will conclude in a scoreless draw due to its closeness.
