Abha have shown some form in recent times, beating Al Wehda 1-0 and then drawing 1-1 against Al Riyadh. They have lost just one of their last four games. They also put in good performances against Al Nassr in the reverse fixture as they held them to a 2-2 draw.

However, Abha have fallen since and are edging closer to relegation. Al Nassr, meanwhile, look set to finish behind Al Hilal in the title race. They have won three games in a row after two consecutive defeats.

Al Nassr will likely keep up their winning run against Abha.
