Game Preview

Al Hilal vs. Al Riyadh is a derby game between two teams from the Saudi capital Riyadh. These two have met on 10 occasions in the Saudi Pro League, with Al Riyadh failing to win a single game. Still, it’s been a long time since these two met the last time. It happened in 2005 because Al Riyadh played in the lower tiers of the Saudi soccer league system for 18 years.

This team arrived to the Saudi Pro League this summer, but the question is how long will these guys stay in the top tier. The thing is that they’re 1-1-3 since the start of the 2023 season with a score differential of 3-10.

Meanwhile, Al Hilal is sitting at the very top of the table with a 4-1-0 record and a score difference of 14-5. And the best thing is that the “Blue Waves” did all that without Neymar playing.

He’ll miss this game as well as he’s currently with the Brazilian national team on international duty. However, his Al Hilal teammates like Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ruben Neves, Kalidou Koulibaly, and others should be able to continue to play great.

Al Hilal vs. Al Riyadh Prediction

With or without Neymar playing, Al Hilal should be able to wreak havoc on Al Riyadh on September 15. These guys are scoring more than three goals per game on average, and we think they might do even better this time.
