Al Raed vs Al Riyadh Predicted Lineups and News

Before we go into more details regarding the Al Raed vs Al Riyadh possible lineups we’ll give you the latest team news for each team and what that means for their overall strength.

Team news: Al Raed

Al Raed are a modest team which only aims to stay out of trouble. This was reflected in the first results. Al Raed are yet to put points on the board or score a goal as they started the new season with 3 consecutive defeats. Last Thursday Al Raed failed to offer much of a resistance when Al Hilal paid them a visit and a painful 0-4 loss was suffered.

In the first 3 games, Al Raed were without their Moroccan forward Mohammed Fouzair, who was the team’s top goalscorer last season. Fouzair trains again though and he’s expected to make his debut in the coming match.

Still might be missing their Norwegian playmaker Normann though. He’s trying to overcome COVID but has yet to resume proper training.

Also, the main centre-back Oumar Gonzalez will be absent as he is suspended. He will be missed.

Al Raed Predicted Lineups (4-4-2):

Moreira – Al Jayzani, Al Rajeh, Al Fahad, Al Sobeai – Al Dossary, Al Beshe, Loum, Sunbul – Tavares, Fouzair

Team news: Al Riyadh

Al Riyadh suffered their first defeat of the season last Thursday when they were beaten 0-4 at home by the mighty Al Ittihad team that contained Benzema and several other stars. Still, the manner of the capitulation must have angered the manager as the defending was very sloppy in this match.

Al Riyadh collected 4 points from their first 2 games and they are undefeated on their travels since last October (W11 D2). We must stress that most of those away games were in the Second Tier as Al Riyadh only just got promoted to the top flight.

The Belgian head coach Ferrera enjoys a clean bill of health and he has options to refresh the lineup that lost so badly on Thursday. Al Abbas should keep his starting spot up front as he has been directly involved in all 3 goals his team scored so far – 2 goals and 1 assist.

Al Riyadh Predicted Lineups (4-4-2):

Campana – Shuwayyi, Asiri, Arslanagic, Tosca – Al Harajin, Ndong, Toure, Al Khaibari – Al Abbas, Musona

Will Oumar Gonzalez play for Al Raed?

No, the important centre-back Oumar Gonzalez misses out due to a suspension.
