Neymar Jr’s new club Al Hilal will take on Steven Gerrard’s Al Ettifaq in the Saudi Pro League on Monday, August 28 at the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium in Riyadh. Al Hilal and Al Ettifaq are third and fourth in the Saudi Pro League table, respectively, with seven points each.
Al Hilal are coming off a dominating 4-0 win over Al Raed, with new signing Alexander Mitrovic, Salem Aldawsari, Abdullah Al-Hamdan, Oumar Gonzalez, and Sergej Milinković-Savić' all on the score sheet. Although the attack has impressed, the defense has struggled to keep clean sheets, keeping only one in the last eight matches. Hopefully, star signing Yassine Bounou will help solve the defensive woes, as the former Sevilla goalkeeper’s first appearance in the last game was spotless.
Al Ettifaq, on the other hand, would have been irritated in their last game against Al Khaleej, as the scoreline read 1-1 at full-time with Victor Vinicius scoring the only goal for the hosts. The Steven Gerrard managed side had 16 shots, while their opponents had only two, with only one on target. Gerrard has started his stint in Saudi Arabia impressively, beating Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr in the opening game.
These two sides have met 42 times, with Al Hilal dominating the fixture with 30 wins, while Ettifaq managed three wins over the Saudi giants and 9 draws. Al-Ettifaq FC's last away win against Al-Hilal was in 2016, and since then Al Hilal have won seven out of eight games with one being drawn.
