Al-Raed takes on Al-Nassr in an eagerly anticipated showdown tomorrow in the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium.
Al-Nassr, riding high on three consecutive wins, will look to continue their resurgence in the 2023-24 campaign. Meanwhile, Al-Raed, fresh from a hard-fought draw, aims to build on their recent momentum and climb further up the standings.
Al Raed vs Al Nassr Predicted Lineups and News
Al Raed faces an uphill challenge in the Saudi Professional League, after having to endure a frustrating streak of 10 winless home games. While their recent form at home has been wanting, the team has been a source of entertainment, with over 2.5 goals in 12 of their last 16 fixtures.
On the other hand, Al Nassr arrives in impressive form, particularly on the road, where they’ve clinched ten wins in their last 13 Saudi Professional League away games. This remarkable away record positions them as the favorites, carrying a wave of confidence into the match.
Additionally, Al Nassr’s attacking prowess with Cristiano Ronaldo sets the stage for an exciting showdown against Al Raed. The match promises to be a thrilling spectacle for football fans.

Al Raed’s center-back, Oumar Gonzalez, was subbed off in the 86th minute due to a minor injury during their match against Al Fayha. As a result, his availability for the first team might be in question. It’s possible that we’ll see Jayzani taking his place, likely with the specific aim of thwarting Ronaldo’s goal-scoring attempts.
Barring Gonzalez’s situation, it appears that Igor Jovićević is inclined to maintain the existing squad for the upcoming clash against Al Nassr. This suggests a vote of confidence in his current lineup’s capabilities.
Al Raed Predicted Lineups
André Moreira; Mohammed Al-Dosari, Hamad Al-Jayzani, Bander Whaeshi, Khalid Alsubaie; Mohamed Fouzair, Mansour Al Bishi, Mathias Normann, Yahya Sunbul; Amir Saâyoud, Karim El Berkaoui

In a curious twist, Al Nassr also faced a setback with one of their defenders, Abdullah Madu, sustaining an injury in the final minutes of their last match. Consequently, it’s highly improbable that we’ll find him in the squad for the upcoming game. Instead, Al Fatil may make an appearance.
Under Luis Castro’s strategy, the intention is clear: dominate their opponents with the dynamic duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mané leading the charge. In line with this approach, Castro seems inclined to maintain continuity within his squad, opting for an unchanged lineup from their previous match.
Al Nassr Predicted Lineups
Sultan Al-Ghannam, Ali Al-Oujami, Mohammad Al Fatil, Alex Telles; Marcelo Brozović, Abdullah Alkhaibari, Seko Fofana; Anderson Talisca, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sadio Mané.
