Al-Taawoun - Form Analysis: Consistently Among the Best

"The Wolves" are playing under the guidance of Pericles Chamusca. Few know this Brazilian coach, though his assistants, Landzaat and André Bikey, are more recognizable from their playing days. Notable players include Medrán, Girotto, and Barrow, though they are relatively modest compared to their teammates. Rumors suggest Gattuso might join, but even without him, the results have been strong, keeping the team among the league leaders. Their recent match ended in a 1-1 draw with Al-Fayha.

Al-Ettifaq - Form Analysis: Struggling to Improve Significantly

"The Knights of Dehna" actively engaged in last summer’s transfer market after finishing seventh last season. Steven Gerrard was appointed as head coach, bringing in players like Henderson, Moussa Dembélé, possibly Fabinho, Gray, and Hendry. Winter additions included Toko Ekambi and Seko Fofana, though Henderson moved to Ajax. Results have been inconsistent, with only notable wins over Al-Riyadh and Al-Ittihad in recent months. They secured a 1-0 victory over Al-Shabab in the last round, thanks to a goal by Medrán.
