Time: 01:30 (GMT+8) on February 22nd

Venue: King Abdullah Sports City

Competition: 2020 Saudi Pro League

Al Ahli, now ranking 3rd, are approaching Al Nassr and Al Hilal with two recent wins, taking full advantage of two leaders’ slips, closing the gap between themselves and top-ranked Al Hilal to 8 points.

For Al Ahli, it has been 4 years since the last time they held the Saudi Pro League’s trophy in the 2015/2016 season and the title is what they aim for this season, although their lineup somewhat weaken with the absence of experienced defensive midfielder Josef due to injury.

Nevertheless, Al Ahli are still maybe too strong for Al Fateh, who are struggling at the bottom of the table and 7 points away from getting out of the relegation group.

Al Fateh’s halo since the 2012/2013 championship has been long gone. Hence, they will need a miracle to snatch even a point from King Abdullah Sports City.

This belief is even further backed up by the fact that Al Ahli have come out victorious in 9 out of the last 10 games against Al Fateh.
