Al Hilal have been in imperious form throughout the season but recently faced disappointment. They were eliminated from the AFC Champions League semi-finals, losing 5-4 on aggregate against Al Ain. They did, however, bounce back with a 3-1 win over Al Fateh in the league.

Al Taawoun, meanwhile, are also in good form, as they beat a 10-men Damac away from home in their last game. They are fourth in the Saudi Pro League table, a point behind Al-Ahli, who have a game in hand.

Al Hilal have lost just one game this season – a 4-2 defeat against Al Ain on April 17. Even their last draw came in September as they’ve won every game since. They will face Al Ittihad in the King’s Cup semi-final on Tuesday.

Al Taawoun, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last six games, winning three and drawing three. Al Hilal, though, have enough firepower and should be able to beat the fourth-placed side.
