In the Saudi Pro League’s opening match of the season, Al Raed will clash with reigning champions Al Ittihad at the King Abdullah Sport City Stadium on Monday evening. Al Raed aims to better their 10th-place finish from the previous season, yet they face a formidable challenge against Al Ittihad, who commence their title defense in this fixture.

Al-Raed experienced regression in the previous season, sliding from 7th place in 2021-22 to 10th place. They garnered 34 points in 30 matches, securing nine wins, seven draws, and enduring 14 losses. They conceded 49 goals, ranking fourth in conceding. The team’s season concluded poorly, with a winless streak in the final three matches and only one victory in the last five games. Despite drawing against their upcoming opponent in their latest meeting, Al-Raed struggles against the reigning champions, having not won in the last seven encounters. Nevertheless, as the first match of the season, they approach it with optimism and a desire to perform well before facing Al-Tai in the next fixture.

Al-Ittihad clinched their ninth Pro League championship last season, ending a 14-year drought since their last win in 2009. Led by Nuno Espirito Santo, the team outperformed Al-Nassr by five points to secure the title. With 22 wins and six losses in 30 matches, their defensive prowess stood out, conceding just 13 goals, five fewer than their closest rivals. Their match fitness is solid due to their participation in the Arab Club Champions Cup, where they reached the semi-finals before losing to eventual runners-up Al-Hilal. Santo’s active summer transfer window has seen significant arrivals, including Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema, aiming for their second-ever title defense.

Al Raed probable starting lineup: Moreira, Al Jayzani, Al Rajeh, Santos, Sunbul, Loum, Sayoud, Al Farhad, Al Beshe, Tavares, Mitrita

Al Ittihad probable starting lineup: Grohe, Bamsaud, Sharahili, Hawsawi, Shanqeeti, Fabinho, Kante, Al Farhan, Jota, Benzema, Romarinho
