  • Competition: Saudi Pro League
  • Date: 2nd May 2024
  • Kickoff: 19:00 UTC +1 / 20:00 CEST
  • Venue: Prince Abdullah Al Faisal Stadium

Two Saudi Pro League sides separated by  just four places meet on Thursday night as Al Ahli play host to Damac in what will be Matchday 30.

Al Ahli Saudi sit 19 points below the top two, but that’s great considering that they only got promoted from the second division last season. The hosts were last in action last weekend when they travelled to Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium to face Al-Riyadh and now boast just one win in their last five matches after losing that game 2-1.

Damac meanwhile are competing in Saudi Arabians top flight for the fifth consecutive year. Their best campaign during this period came in the 2021-22 campaign when they finished in fifth. Cosmin Contra’s side have avoided defeat in only two of their last six games, but they will be boosted ahead of the trip to Al Ahli by the fact that both games were on the road.

Al Ahli vs Damac FC Betting Tips: Both teams to score

Scoring goals has not been a problem for Al-Ahli Saudi in recent weeks, but they have a lot of work to do defensively. The hosts enter Thursday’s game with just two clean sheets from their last nine outings and conceded two goals against relegation candidates Al-Riyadh last time out.

Damac can’t equally boast a good defense either. The visitors finished just one of their last six games without conceding and their record against Al Ahli defensively is equally very poor. Bets on btts – yes were won in each of the last eight meetings between these two sides.

  • Best Tip: BTTS - Yes
