In the 20th round of the Saudi Pro League, Al Nassr will face Al Fateh. While Al Nassr continues to pursue the leader Al Hilal, with 7 points difference between them, Al Fateh has almost no chances to get into top 3 since the gap between the team and Al Ahli is 11 points. After finishing the friendly Riyadh Season exhibition matches, the hosts are back to the championship for their quest for winning the league, being an obvious favourite in the upcoming clash. This was also confirmed by the last two head to head matches, where Al Nassr confidently won two times - 5-0, 3-0.

Al Nassr vs. Al Fateh Preview 

Al Nassr Preview

Al Nassr was on the break from the end of December, participating in friendly Riyadh season Cup, where Cristiano Ronaldo’s team crushed Inter Miami (6-0) and lost for the third time in a row to the main opponent in the championship, Al Hilal (2-0). The long-awaited meeting between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi did not happen, but Ronaldo was already in the squad in the match with Al Hilal and is now ready to continue in the Saudi Pro League. The team from Riyadh currently occupies second place with 46 points and has a comfortable gap of 6 points from the third-placed Al Ahli. Despite this, the team is still in the race for the title, with 7 points difference from Al Hilal. Al Nassr has a solid streak of four wins in a row and since all the team’s starts are in form and ready to action, Al Nassr waits for Al Fateh in high spirits.

Al Fateh Preview

Al Fateh represents a classic middleweight club in the middle of the table, despite having several interesting personalities in the squad. The club is managed by famous croatian Slaven Bilic and has several players that are well-known in the European football scene, such as Christian Tello, once a Barcelona wonderkid and Jason Denayer, once a perspective graduate of Manchester City’s academy. Despite this, the team does not please their fans this season with only 29 points after 19 rounds. In the last 8 rounds, the team from Al Ahsa got only one win, with 4 losses and 3 draws.

Betting Tips for Al Nassr vs. Al Fateh

Both to Score and Al Nassr to Win

While Al Nassr being an obvious favourite, the team does not look solid in the defence even with players like Aymeric Laporte and Alex Telles. In the last 5 consecutive matches of SPL, Al Nassr concedes, and has all the chances to concede in this match as well, given that it is the first match of the league after the break for the hosts. Parimatch evaluates this Al Nassr vs. Al Fateh prediction with odds of 2.12.

Al Nassr to Win in Both Halves 

The difference between the two teams in class is too evident to hope for any chances for Al Fateh in the upcoming match. Al Nassr wins in both halves in four consecutive rounds of the SPL and while all the attacking stars of the team, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Sadio Mane and Anderson Talisca, are ready to play, there is little doubt that Al Nassr can prolong this streak. Judging from the Al Nassr vs. Al Fateh odds by Parimatch, this outcome is evaluated as 2.16.

Goal from 76th Minute - Yes
