Al-Nassr - Form Analysis: Falling Short Again

The "Knights of Najd" have an experienced coach known for winning numerous trophies, including with Shakhtar Donetsk. Their squad has become even more star-studded thanks to an ambitious transfer campaign last summer. However, they have been outperformed by a stronger team in the Saudi league and suffered defeats in other competitions. Ronaldo's statistics have notably dropped, indicating that the veteran and other foreign players might be conserving energy for the upcoming Euro and other tournaments, or simply avoiding injury before their vacation. In their last match, the vice-champions defeated Al-Ittihad 4-2 with a brace from their star player.

Al-Hilal - Form Analysis: Worthy of Comparison to Bayern

The "Leaders" have only faced a single setback on the international stage, losing to Al-Ain from the UAE in the AFC Champions League. Domestically, Jorge Jesus's team has been dominant, breaking numerous records. Despite securing the championship title early, they continued to win most of their matches, with only three draws. Recently, they defeated Al-Wehda 2-1 thanks to a late goal from Mitrović.
