Nevertheless, the season is long, and they have plenty of time to catch up with them. However, this will only be possible if Al Nassr gets back onto the winning track. So, can they do it on October 21 against Damac?

The Al Nassr vs. Damac odds have moved slightly against Cristiano Ronaldo’s team, but these guys remain huge favorites. And it’s rightly so! Al Nassr has a much better roster than Damac. It’s not just about Cristiano Ronaldo who’s this team’s captain and its most famous player. It’s also about Sadio Mane, Otavio, Talisca, Marcelo Brozovic, and many others.
All of these guys are offensive-minded players which is why it’s no surprise that Al Nassr has scored 26 goals in the 2023 Saudi Pro League already. Al Nassr has Aymeric Laporte in its defensive line, but the rest of its defenders (and its goalie) aren’t that great, which is why this team’s conceded 12 goals in the 9 games played so far in the Saudi top tier.
Should this worry them ahead of the game with Damac? It should, albeit not too much. Damac has great offense, the evidence of which is that it’s scored 15 goals in 9 games. That said, this team should be able to score against Al Nassr on October 21. However, CR7 & his teammates should be able to strike back. But will they score enough to grab another three points?
