Al Hilal are enduring a topsy-turvy campaign even though they are leading the domestic table with 77 points. They were recently knocked out in the semifinals of the Asian Champions League after losing 5-4 to Al-Ain on aggregate. They are also on a 17-match winning run on home soil, dating back to September.

Meanwhile, Al Fateh have been inconsistent in the last few games as their results have been up and down over the past few weeks. The visitors secured a 3-1 win over Al-Raed last weekend but are not favorites for this away tie. Slaven Bilic’s men have a poor home record as he has only guided his squad to five victories at the Prince Abdullah bin Jalawi Stadium.
