In the 22nd round of the Saudi Premier League, Al Nasr faces one of the main outsiders of the tables - Al Hazm. While Al Nasr still can cherish hopes of catching up with Al Hilal, Al Hazm occupies the last place, with 6 points to the 15the place. It is hard to compare two teams, in both quality of game and class of the players and there is little hope of Al Hazm to get at least a point at Al Awwal Park. The last two head to head matches ended with a humiliating 9-2 score (5-1, 4-1), and Luis Castro expects his players to show similar results in front of the fans.

Al Nasr vs. Al Hazm Preview 

Al Nasr Preview

Al Nasr continues to perform brilliantly in the league, extending the winning streak to 6 consecutive matches. The last-round match against Al Shabab proved to be a serious test for Cristiano Ronaldo’s team, with Anderson Talisca scoring a winning goal in the 86th minute (2-3). Castro expressed his disappointment with the team's game in defence and it is well-expected that Al Nasr will be concentrating on the defensive actions in the upcoming games. The match against Al Hazm, the main outsider for the league, will be a perfect opportunity for the testing of new tactics, build-ups, given that the hosts are more than capable of winning in any case. Moreover, Al Nasr is one of the best home teams in Saudi, having 25 points in 10 home matches, in which it scored 26 goals.

Al Hazm Preview

Al Hazm has been winless since the beginning of December, when the team won Al Fateh (2-0), another table’s outsider. Since then, the team from Al Rass had 2 loses and 3 draws, not really showing any signs of hope for the fans. The dreams to stay in the top tier of Saudi football are most likely vanishing given that the gap to the 15the place is 6 points, a distance which is hard to overcome for today’s Al Hazm. Daniel Carreno’s team comes to Riyadh without any expectations, given their games against Saudi top clubs and recent head to head matches with Al Nasr. In the recent match against Al Hilal, Al Hazem conceded 9 goals, while the last two clashes with Al Nasr ended with defeats 4-1 and 5-1.
