The two teams who sit first and second on the log will go head to head in yet the biggest game of the season.

Al Hilal are unbeaten in the league this season but Al Nassr haven’t tasted defeat since the second week of the campaign.

There’re no new injury worries for both coaches as all players from the previous round have been confirmed available.

Neymar though is out on a longterm for the Blues but Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be in the line up for the Nasrawi despite doubts over his fitness.

Al Hilal with a victory could open up an early seven point gap while Al Nassr could cut the Blues’ lead to just one point with a victory of their own.

Meanwhile…

In order to have a free and fair game, Colombian referee Wilmar Roldan has been appointed as the match official.

The South American will alongside his compatriots oversee the affair between the two biggest teams in Saudi Arabia.
