If played several rounds earlier, this match would not have been so important, given the advantage Al Nasr held over Al Ahli in the tables. However, after a series of setbacks, the difference now is only 6 points and currently Al Nasr is more concerned of how not to drop to the third place instead of attempting to catch up with the first Al Hilal. Al Ahli, on the other hand, does not lose three matches in a row and at least psychologically seems to be better prepared for the upcoming match. In the first round, the teams brought a spectacle with Al Nasr winning 4-3. 

Al Ahli vs Al Nasr Preview 

Al Ahli Preview

After defeat to Al Akhood in the first match after holidays, Al Ahli won two matches against Al Tai (4-1) and Al Taawoun (1-0) and had a draw with Al Fateh (1-1). Given that Al Ahli does not participate in other competitions besides Premier League, all the resources of the team are currently given to the championship. After setbacks from Al Nasr, Matthias Jaissle’s team got chances to decrease the advantage and possibly thinks about taking the second spot in the table. Given the current state of mind of Al Nasr and relative lack of squad depth in the opponent’s camp, Al Ahli’s mood is easily justifiable. 

Al Nasr Preview 

Al Nasr entered the crisis period of the season with being eliminated from the AFC Champions League by Al-Ain (1-0, 4-3), in addition to losing to Al Raed (1-3) and drawing with Al Hazem (4-4). With these developments, Al Nasr’s hopes to wield Asian Champions League vanished, as well as the possibility of decreasing the gap with Al Hilal, which is already 12 points. It is worth admitting, though, that in the second leg against Al Ain, the team was showing signs of life, and probably the match against Al Ahli can be the starting point for the coming back to winning ways. The fans and the board expect a reaction from the team in order to show that this winless streak was rather a set of circumstances but not the crisis. Moreover, the head to head statistics are favourable for guests, with Al Nasr not losing at Al Ahli’s field for 7 consecutive matches.

Betting Tips for Al Ahli vs Al Nasr

Al Nasr Draw No Bet

Al Nasr’s winless streak is frightening and currently, given that the team was eliminated from the Champions League, all resources will be thrown into the domestic championship. Both Luis Castro and players emphasised the importance of the upcoming match. At the same time, Al Ahli played only 4 matches this year which can still influence the quality of their game. Unibet gives 1.81 for this Al Ahli vs. Al Nasr prediction.

Total Goals Over 3.5

Given the problems of both teams with defence, and the quality of players in the attack, there is little doubt that there will be goals in the upcoming clash. Remembering the first-round match (4-3) also indicates that this match will most likely be productive and fans should expect to see at least three goals. Al Ahli vs. Al Nasr odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 2.33.

Cristiano Ronaldo to Score

There is no more suitable time for Cristiano Ronaldo to show his leadership and take the mantle of the leading figure. It was his goal in the match against Al Ain which gave Al Nasr the chance of taking the game into penalty shootout. Ronaldo is the perfect man to lead his team in the upcoming match given his determination and goalscoring qualities. Unibet gives 1.85 for this Al Ahli vs. Al Nasr tip.
