Defending champions Al Ittihad will aim to secure their fifth victory in six Saudi Pro League matches as they face newly-promoted Al Akhdoud in Najran this Thursday. Al Ittihad, the powerhouse from Jeddah, suffered a thrilling 4-3 defeat against their arch-rivals Al Hilal just before the international break. On the other hand, Al Akhdoud secured a 1-0 win over Al Riyadh in their last outing. Al Akhdoud, who earned promotion from the second tier last season, have faced a challenging start to their top-flight campaign. They currently sit in 13th place in the Saudi Pro League table, with one win, one draw, and three losses.

Despite a draw in their opening match against Al Shabab, Al Akhdoud endured three consecutive losses, failing to score in two of those matches. However, in their most recent game, they clinched a 1-0 victory over Al Riyadh, marking their first win of the season. Nevertheless, Jorge Mendonca, the coach of Al Akhdoud, may have concerns about his team’s scoring ability, as they have only managed to score three goals in their first five league games, making them one of the least prolific teams in the league.

In contrast, Al Ittihad currently sits in third place, with a comfortable eight-point lead over Al Akhdoud. Under the management of former Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo, the reigning Pro League champions started their title defense with four consecutive clean-sheet wins, scoring an impressive 12 goals along the way. However, their last match was a seven-goal thriller against Al Hilal, which they lost 4-3, with Aleksandar Mitrovic scoring a hat-trick for the opposition.

Probable Lineups

Al Akhdoud’s probable starting lineup: Vitor, Al Zabdani, Kvirkvelia, Alyami, Bruca, Al Mansour, Collado, Al Muwallad, Tanase, Al Harthi, Tawamba

Al Ittihad’s probable starting lineup: Grohe, Alolayan, Hawsawi, Sharahili, Bamsaud, Kante, Fabinho, Romarinho, Hamdallah, Coronado, Benzema
