On Monday, August 14, 2023 Al-Ettifaq will compete against Al-Nassr in the Matchday 1 of the Saudi Pro League match. Watch here, Al-Ettifaq vs Al-Nassr live streaming, preview and how to watch it.
The match between Al-Ettifaq and Al-Nassr will take place on Monday, 14 August 2023, at the Prince Mohamed bin Fahd Stadium, within the first week of the Saudi League. This is an important match for the start of the new season for two teams who have tradition and achievements in the Saudi Arabian league.
Al-Ettifaq have won this league four times, the last time was in 2009. However, they have not been able to maintain their high form in recent seasons. Last season, they only finished 10th in the standings, with 9 wins, 7 draws and 14 losses. They also only scored 38 goals and conceded 49 goals.
To rectify the situation, Al-Ettifaq has made several changes this summer. They have added two new players to their squad, namely Brazilian midfielder Lucas Lima from Palmeiras and Argentinian midfielder Matias Kranevitter from Monterrey. They also managed to keep hold of French striker Yannick N’Djeng, who scored 14 goals last season. Most notably, they also acquired the services of Jordan Henderson, a star from Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Al-Nassr is one of the strongest teams in the Saudi League. They have won nine times, the last time in the 2018-2019 season. Last season, they also lost just one point to champions Al-Ittihad, with 22 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses. They also have the best attack in the league with 67 goals and a solid defense with only 25 goals conceded.
Al-Nassr also did not want to lose in recruiting quality players to increase their banging power. Apart from Cristiano Ronaldo or Talisca, they also have several European football stars such as Seko Fofana, Marcelo Brozovic, or Sadio Mane. They also recently won the Arab Club Champions Cup, the highest tournament between Arab countries.
Looking at the history of the meeting, the last time they met, the two teams drew 1-1 at the same stadium. Al-Nassr went ahead through Luiz Gustavo’s goal in the 56th minute, but Al-Ittifaq equalized through Youssouf Niakaté in the 43rd minute. From the last three matches in the Saudi Pro League, Al-Nassr is superior with one win and two draws. Ittifaq are still looking for their first win over Al-Nassr since October 2021.
Al-Ettifaq had a home record last season with seven wins, three draws and five losses. On the other hand, Al-Nassr won eight wins, four draws and three defeats as a visiting team. If you look at the team’s performance and strength, Al-Nassr is clearly superior. They have a big chance to bring home the three points, although it won’t be easy. This is because Al-Nassr was just exhausted from playing in the Arab Club Champions Cup.
Based on the latest information above, the match between Al-Ettifaq and Al-Nassr is expected. Although Al-Nassr has the advantage over Al-Ettifaq, the home team is also not an easy opponent to beat.
