The match in Round 19 will involve the 8th team of the table, Al Shabab at the 14th team at the table, Damak.

Al Shabab has not shown their form that ended them at the 5th position last season. They have won 7 matches, drew 4 and lost 7. Their defensive area is the problem. 22 goals have been conceded, compared to 20 goals scored by the team. Argentinian striker C. Guanca has been key to the team, with 6 goals so far this season.

As for their opponent, Damak is struggling at the relegation position with only 14 points out of 18 games. They need at least 5 points to get to the safe position. Nonetheless, they have been unbeaten at the last 5 games, with 5 draws and 1 win. Their form must improve if they do not want a ticket returns to the lower division of Saudi football. 

At the earlier match this season, these two sides have settled out for a draw. Damak with the home advantage went ahead, but the equalizer from Guanca saw both teams out with a point each.

Statistics have shown that Damak have won just one of their last 5 Saudi Pro League away games, whereas there has been a red card in 4 of Shabab's 10 Saudi Pro League home games this season.

As the advantages are in favor of Al Shabab, a comfortable win at home is predicted for the host. It will need a miracle to save Damak at this point of the season.
