Al Nassr vs Al Wehda Preview

  • Date – Saturday, May 04
  • Kick-off Time – 7:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – King Saud University Stadium

Al Nassr will be locking horns with Al Wehda in a crucial midweek clash in the Saudi Pro League on Saturday, May 04. It will be an interesting contest between both sides as Al Nassr would be hoping to continue his impressive winning run of seven games.

The hosts approach this game with a positive track record having secured seven consecutive wins while scoring 19 goals and conceding only twice during the run. It’s very likely Al Nassr’s Cristiano Ronaldo would be back on the scoresheet who has scored 38 goals in 39 appearances for his new club.

Al Wehda are sitting in the bottom half of the league table, and the team has only managed nine victories against 15 defeats. They are winless in their last four games across all competitions and have a narrow six-point buffer above the relegation zone.
