The Al-Nassr team will challenge the SC Farense team in a Friendly Match in Do Algarve Stadium, São João da Venda on Friday, July 14, 2023. For streaming coverage of Al-Nassr vs SC Farense, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Al Nassr, a team reinforced by Cristiano Ronaldo, will meet SC Farense in their second trial match in Portugal. This game will be one of the benchmarks for Al Nassr before they face the new Saudi Pro League 2023/24 season, which will kick off on August 11.
Al-Nassr is trying to bounce back from a disappointing closing 2022/23 season. The team from the Saudi Pro League have managed just four wins from their last eight league matches, and have had to settle for second place to champions Al-Ittihad.
Ronaldo scored three goals in those games but he was visibly disappointed that he failed to win the title. The Portuguese star is now back training hard with his team-mates at the pre-season training camp in Portugal. Ronaldo appears to be undergoing a special training program of his own as part of his return to the team.
However, Ronaldo and new signing Marcelo Brozovic are unlikely to feature in the match against Farense. Both Ronaldo and Brozovic represented their countries in the June international break and were given extra rest. Without their presence, Al Nassr will certainly find it difficult to compete with Farense, who are one of the stronger teams in the Portuguese second division.
Farense itself has just been confirmed as the second team to be promoted to the Portuguese top flight next season, after beating Benfica. The team from Algarve have been quite impressive in their last five away matches, with two wins and two draws.
The meeting against Al Nassr will be one of the two prestigious trial matches that Farense will face before they return to competing in the Portuguese top flight. Farense certainly want to show that they deserve to play at the highest level of Portuguese football by beating Al Nassr.
Castro, Al-Nassr’s new coach, has selected his best squad for the trip to Portugal, and he is expected to rotate his players for the four matches scheduled in the Algarve this month. The new coach will be using the training camp to evaluate his options ahead of the new season.
Despite having just won a surprising victory over Alverca, the Portuguese third division team, Al-Nassr cannot be complacent. They have to be ready to face Farense, who is definitely tougher and has more quality. For coach Dinko Jelicic and his team, even a draw is satisfying enough.
