Al Hilal vs Al Raed Match Preview

  • Tournament – Saudi Pro League
  • Date – Sunday, February 18, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 02:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium

Al Hilal will face off against Al Raed in their first Saudi Pro League game after the mid-season break. The Blue Waves lead the league table and sit seven points above rivals Al Nassr.

They are currently on a 22-game winning streak across competitions. This includes their wins over Inter Miami and Al Nassr in the Riyadh Season Cup during the winter break. Al Hilal are also active in the AFC Champions League and will face Sepahan over two legs in the Round of 16.

Meanwhile, Al Raed are 13th in the Saudi Pro League table, just two points above the relegation zone. The winter break arguably came at the wrong time for them as they had won their last two games in the league before the break.

Al Raed will now face a major challenge against the league leaders and hope to gain some momentum for the remainder of the season.
