Jordan Henderson-led Al Ettifaq will take on seventh-placed Al Fateh in the Saudi Pro League. This could be a tight encounter with both teams looking to break into the top four.
Al Ettifaq are unbeaten in their last 4 games and gaining momentum at the right time. Al Fateh also lost just one in their previous 5 games, but they can look a bit streaky. The game will kick-off at 7 pm UK time and will be refereed by Abdulsamad Bakri.
How to watch in the UK
Saudi Arabia’s acquisition of some of the best players in the world, including a few former Premier League ones, has sky-rocketed its demand around the globe. Former Liverpool captain Henderson leading Al Ettifaq means that there is a significant interest in this game in the UK.

Al Ettifaq vs Al Fateh TV coverage and live streaming: International options
Saudi Pro League’s appeal extends beyond Saudi Arabia and has spread internationally courtesy of superstars such as Georginio Wijnaldum who will be in action for Al Ettifaq in this game against Al Fateh. This is why there are broadcasters from all over the world covering this game.
For fans in the United States, ESPN is the go-to streaming option, be it via the ESPN site on a larger screen or the ESPN app for mobile. Unfortunately for the US fans, there are no TV broadcasters for this game. The kick-off time in Washington DC is 11 am so it is an early start.
Shahid is the international broadcaster for the Saudi Premier League and will be covering the game in multiple African countries, including Nigeria. A Shahid subscription costs 8.99 pounds/month. The African country is in the same time zone as the UK, so the game will start at 7 pm local time.
None of the big African channels like SuperSport or DStv are broadcasting this clash so Kenyan fans will also have to rely on Shahid to watch the likes of Henderson and Dembele in action. The kick-off time in Kenya is 9 pm, two hours later than Nigeria and Britain.
Due to the massive presence of Ronaldo fans in the Indian subcontinent, the Saudi Premier League gained popularity in India much quicker than everywhere else.
