Al Wehda will play host to Cristiano Ronaldo and Al Nassr in a crucial match on Thursday in the Saudi Pro League’s second round of action. Al Wehda, who are 13th in the Saudi Pro League standings and have not performed at their best so far this season, are currently in that position.
In their previous match, the hosts were defeated 2-0 by Al Feiha, a defeat they will need to overcome this week. Al Nassr, on the other hand, is currently at the top of the league and has gone through a brief downturn in recent weeks.
In this matchup, the away team will need to step it up after last week’s 2-2 draw with Al Fateh.
Al Nassr will need to put in a lot of effort to keep their position at the top of the league table because they haven’t been at their best in recent weeks. Cristiano Ronaldo will be expected to lead his team in goals this week as Talisca serves his suspension.
Al Wehda is a team that can hit hard on their day, but this season they have been inconsistent. Al Nassr should be able to win this game because they appear to be the superior team.
Prediction: Al Wehda 1-2 Al Nassr
Al Nassr has won 14 of the last 21 games they have played against Al Wehda, while Al Wehda has won four of those games. Al Nassr’s record against Al Wehda is impressive. In their 15 league games so far this season, Al Nassr has scored 30 goals.
Al Shabab, who leads the league with 31 goals, has scored more goals than Al Nassr. Prior to their 3-1 loss to Al Ittihad in the Saudi Super Cup last week, Al Nassr had won 13 consecutive matches across all competitions. Al Nassr has not lost in their last 13 games in the Saudi Pro League.
Their previous defeat came by a score of 1-0 against Al Taawoun. In his three official matches for Al Nassr thus far, Cristiano Ronaldo has not scored a goal and will attempt to do so this week.
Anderson Talisca has had a fantastic season, scoring an impressive 13 goals in all during the current campaign. Additionally, he appears to be on a good run right now, having scored five goals in his last six games. Against Al-Wehda, Al Nassr FC is relying on him to maintain momentum.
