  • Competition: Saudi Professional League
  • Date: 22nd January 2023
  • Kickoff: 17:30 UTC / 18:30 CET
  • Venue: The Mrsool Park

After landing the transfer of one of the living legends of the game, Cristiano Ronaldo, Al-Nassr will battle it out with Al-Ettifaq for the top spot in the Saudi Professional League, this Sunday. The home side is just a point behind Al-Ittihad, who collaborated with them earlier this week as French club PSG travelled to Saudi Arabia for a friendly. Al-Nassr is the best-attacking side in the competition with 27 goals scored in 13 games played, and just one loss during this time frame. Al-Ettifaq are in for a big contest as they will be coming into this game with nine defeats and draws from their 13 fixtures and additionally just one win away from home since the season began. Al-Nassr remain unbeaten at the Mrsool Park and have an average of over 2 goals scored per home game this season too.

Al-Nassr vs Al Ittifaq Betting Pick #1: Over 2.5 goals

Al-Nassr have scored 15 goals in their 7 home games played, and 27 goals in totality. With the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo in this already offensively settled giant of a Saudi club, there is no doubt that goals are going to fly in, all evening. We expect Al-Nassr to score over 2.5 goals alone against Al-Ettifaq, who have conceded just six goals in their six away games but are yet to come across an opponent of Al-Nassr's calibre. Priced at 1.62 odds at the time of writing, Over 2.5 goals is one of the best picks for this game.

Pick #2: BTTS-No

Having conceded just four times in seven home games, Al-Nassr look as defensively solid as they are, when attacking the opponent's goal. To add to the same, Al-Ettifaq have also scored just four times in their six away games played, which is way below average. We believe that the home side will win this game by over 2.5 goals but also keep a clean sheet on the evening to reiterate their claim on the top spot of the Saudi Professional League.

Al-Nassr Team News

Cristiano Ronaldo seems all set to make his Saudi Professional League full debut in the Al-Nassr colours as he captained the team against PSG in a friendly earlier this week. The Portuguese legend is another big name in the lineup which boasts two European football stalwarts, in the form of David Ospina in goal and Luiz Gustavo in the midfield. It took Cristiano just under 40 minutes to score a brace for his new club, against PSG, and there is no doubt that he will be in contention to grab another golden boot of a new league in a new continent as early as possible.

Players to watch: Anderson Talisca (11 goals), Jaloliddin Masharipov (2 key passes per game average), Abdulelah Al-Amri (1.8 interceptions per 90 mins)

Al Ittifaq Team News

Al-Ettifaq will miss the services of left-back Alhwsawi Mohammed on Sunday. The full-back was shown a straight red against Al-Fateh in the Professional League and is thus suspended from the next two games. We expect number eight, Hamed Alghamdi, to replace him in the starting eleven. It is definitely not a like-to-like replacement as Mohammed plays as one of the most important defenders in the team with an average of 1.1 interceptions per 90 mins, while Alghamdi has not proven himself a lot in short term this season.

Players to watch: Mohammed El Kuwaykibi (2 assists and 1 goal), Saeed Al Muwallad (1.2 key passes per game average), Ibrahim Mahnashi (1.3 interceptions per 90 mins)
