Damac vs Al Nassr Preview

  • Tournament – Saudi Pro League
  • Date – Friday, April 05, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 08:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Stadium

Al Nassr will be bidding to reclaim their position in the league table with a win over Damac this weekend at Selhurst Park. But they remain 12 points behind leaders Al-Hilal, who have dropped just four points all season. Cristiano Ronaldo netted his 65th hattrick of his professional career in the last game against Abha. The veteran forward is currently the top-scorer in the league with 29 goals and will continue with his productive spell this Friday.

The Knights of Ajad have not been consistent in defence, conceding almost 34 goals in 26 games. They have won their last three matches on the bounce and will likely secure all three points this Friday at the Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Stadium.

They will then take on Damac, who have been languishing in 8th position in the Saudi Pro League table. They had a great start to the 2023/24 season winning eight, drawing six, and losing four of their opening 18 league games and securing the fifth position in the standings. But they have failed to score more than one goal in their last eight league matches and recorded just one victory in the process.
