The Al-Nassr team will challenge the Abha team in a Matchday 9 Saudi Arabia Pro League in Al Awal Park at King Saud University Stadium, Riyadh on Friday, October 06, 2023. For streaming coverage of Al-Nassr vs Abha, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Al-Nassr will host Abha on Friday (6/10) morning at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, in the 9th round of the 2023/24 Saudi Arabian professional league. This is a match that is expected to be fierce and interesting, between a team that is at the top of the standings and a team that is fighting to get out of the relegation zone.
Al-Nassr are in excellent form, having achieved 10 consecutive wins in all competitions. They just beat Istiklol with a landslide score of 3-1 in the Asian Champions League, and now lead the domestic league standings with 21 points from 8 matches. They also have the sharpest attack line in the league, scoring 25 goals and conceding only 7 goals.
One of the main factors behind Al-Nassr’s success is Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined the club last summer from Manchester United. The Portuguese national team striker has scored 11 goals in the last 9 matches, and is the best player in the league at the moment. The 5 Ballon d’Or holder also received support from Sadio Mane (former Liverpool and Bayern Munich), who is also one of the best strikers in the world, although he is still doubtful about being able to play in this match due to health problems.
Meanwhile, Abha Club is experiencing a difficult time, having lost 4 times in the last 5 matches without winning a single one in normal time. They are now in 16th position in the standings, only 3 points ahead of bottom team Al Hazm. They also have the most fragile back line in the league, conceding 19 goals and scoring just 9.
Abha does not have big stars like Al-Nassr, but they have several experienced and quality players, such as Brazilian midfielder Carlos Eduardo, Argentinian striker Cristian Guanca, and Senegalese defender Pape Diaw. They also have a quite competent coach, namely Michniewicz, who brought the Polish U-20 national team to become world champion in 2019.
However, Abha not only faces challenges from the difference in quality between the two teams, but also from history being against them. In the 13 previous meetings between Al-Nassr and Abha, Al-Nassr won 8 times while Abha only won 2 times. The last meeting between the two teams ended with Al-Nassr’s landslide victory with a score of 4-0 last February.
Therefore, it is not surprising that Al-Nassr is the favorite to win this match. They have advantages in all aspects, including performance, strength, confidence and supporting support. Abha must play with high enthusiasm and smart strategy if he wants to avoid another big loss.
