I think Al Hilal can win this match and cover -1.25 goals Asian handicap today. They need to get back on winning ways in order to regain the terrain they lost to other teams because of their participation in the Club World Cup.
Al Hilal is ranked at the 5th place with 20 points and comes after three wins a draw and a loss in the last five matches. After winning the AFC Champions League they have managed to qualify for the next stage in the King Cup and reached the semi finals in the Club World Cup finish after in the 4th place but played good against Monterrey getting a 2-2 draw. They will focus in the league now where they are three games short and need to win some starting from today. They have too many quality players like Gomis or Giovinco who form a powerful attacking duo and i expect them to score today.
Al Hazm on the other hand is ranked at the 11th place with 14 points. They come in a very poor run winning just one of the last five matches drawing one and losing three. They have a leaky defense having conceded 11 goals in the last five matches and 22 in total. Now they face a very solid team especially in attack like I said and i see a lot of troubles ahead of them. Al Hilal has beaten them in six of the seven games played here and in three occasions they fully covered -1.25 goals handicap.
