What to expect from Al Hilal v Al Khaleej in Roshn Saudi League
Roshn Saudi League restarts after the international break with Saturday’s rearranged matchweek 16 fixture between holders Al Hilal and promoted Al Khaleej.
Key details are below:
AL HILAL V AL KHALEEJ
WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Fourth-placed champions Al Hilal are playing catch-up in the title race after their FIFA Club World Cup and 2022 AFC Champions League exploits.
They will be determined to extend their three-match winning run across all competitions, from which they’ve netted 10 times and conceded just once.
Visiting Al Khaleej, meanwhile, sit 14th, level on points with 15th-placed Al Adalah who are in the relegation zone.
Pedro Emanuel’s side will gain confidence from the fact they ended a three-match losing streak in the prior 2-2 draw with Al Tai.
CURRENT ROSHN SAUDI LEAGUE FORM: Al Hilal have kept 11 clean sheets in their unbeaten, 13 Pro League meetings with this weekend’s opponent. Al Khaleej have won one and lost nine of their top-flight away matches in 2022/23.
