Al-Wehda vs Al Shabab by Sors
Al Wehda is newly promoted team in the Saudi Professional League, with limited resources and without big ambitions, even though this summer the club signed with several players with experience in this league in Yahya Kabi (def.) from Al Shoalah, Ahmad Saad (def.) from Al Shoalah, etc., as well as with some foreign players in Jehad Al Baour (def.) from Al Jazeera Amman, Adolfo Lima (midf.) from Union San Felipe, Lukasz Gikiewicz (forw.) from Levski Sofia and Zouheir Dhaouadi (forw.) from Club Africain.
2-2-5 6/13 for Al Wehda from the previous nine rounds, as those two victories came against mediocre teams like Hajer on Nov. 2 (2-1/away) and against Al Qadisiyah in the last round (1-0/home).
On the other hand, the hosts lost each of their previous three games against teams from the upper half of the standings like Al Hilal (0-2/away), Al Ahli (0-2/away) and Al Nassr (0-2/home).
Al Shabab is coming off back-to back losses against Al Hilal on Nov. 27 (0-1/home) and Al Ittihad last Friday (1-2/away), but the guests won fifteen points from the previous seven rounds (4-3-0 8/3), as well as three of their five away games this season (3-1-1 5/3).
In the matter of fact, Al Shabab is already without players like Rogerinho (midf. / 5 goals last term), John Antwi (forw. / 3 goals last term) and top scorer from the last season Naif Nazazi (forw. / 14 goals), but Rafinha (midf. / 5 goals last term) and Mousa Al-Shameri (forw. / 7 goals last term) are still in the team, while the club signed with ambitious head coach like Alvaro Gutierrez this summer (he won the title in the Uruguayan league last season), as well as with some good players in Saif Al Hashan (midf.) from Quadsia, Diego Arismendi (midf.) from Nacional and Mauricio Affonso (forw.) from Racing.
Al Shabab excels Al Wehda in terms of experience and quality of the players, the guests own enough potential to fight for a place at top 4 in this league and I think that they will return on the winning path with three points from this match.
