Al Shabab vs Al Nassr Match Preview

  • Date – Sunday, February 25, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 05:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Al Shabab FC Stadium

Al Shabab have had an inconsistent 2023-24 campaign so far and sits 10th in the Saudi Pro League table. They have won six, drawn six, and lost eight of their 20 league games so far. They’ve also been eliminated from cup competitions.

However, Al Shabab have lost just one of their last five league games and returned to action after the winter break with a 1-0 win over 10-men Damac.

Meanwhile, Al Nassr are competing for the Saudi Pro League title and are seven points behind leader Al Hilal. They have won their last five league games and are also competing in the AFC Champions League.

Al Nassr beat Al Feiha 1-0 in their Champions League Round of 16 first-leg clash and will host them for the second leg on Wednesday before facing Al Shabab.

With Al Hilal already having a sizeable lead in the SPL title race, Al Nassr can ill afford to slip up at this point.
