- Al Read is without a single win over Al Nassr in its history.

The Al Raed vs. Al Nassr 2023 Saudi Pro League game is on the program on Saturday, September 16. These two have met 34 times in the past but Al Raed hasn’t won a single game. It seems very unlikely they’re going to win this time either as Cristiano Ronaldo and his Al Nassr teammates are playing fantastic soccer in the 2023 SPL season.

The 2023 season of the Saudi Pro League hasn’t started all that well for Al Raed. These guys are close to the relegation zone with a 1-1-3 record thus far. The good news for them is that they’re undefeated in the last two rounds. The bad news is that they’re taking on one of the best Saudi teams on September 16.
The team in question is Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr, which is currently the No. 2 favorite to win the league (just behind the reigning champ Al Ittihad) with the Saudi Pro League odds of +500 at BetUS.
Same as Al Raed, Al Nassr too started the season slowly. But after losing two games in a row, the boys in yellow won three games straight. Not only did they win those games, but they scored 14 goals during the process.
CR7 was responsible for six of those, which makes him the scoring leader in the 2023 Saudi Pro League. But he’s not the only one who’s been in a goal-scoring mood. The same goes for Sadio Mane who’s scored five goals so far.
Al Raed vs. Al Nassr Prediction
Even before the Cristiano Ronaldo era started at Al Nassr, this team literally had zero problems in the games against Al Raed. In 2023, Luis Castro’s team looks stronger than ever, which is why anything but a big win for the visitors would be a huge upset.
