Al Ahli vs Al Qadisiya (By: Sors)
Al Ahli enjoy a good start to the season in the Saudi Professional League, where Pablo Guede's men sit in 2nd place in the standings, with six wins, one draw (1-1 at home against Al Taawon in the opening round) and just one defeat (2-6 in the visit to Al Ettifaq on Oct. 20) after eight rounds.In addition to that, the hosts have pretty good chances to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Arab Club Chamions Cup after a 1-0 win in the visit to Algerian side ES Setif on Oct. 28.A lot of changes have been made in Al Ahli during the break (including the appointment of Pablo Guede as the team's new head coach), as impportant players from the last campaign like Mark Milligan (m / 8+0 last term), Claudemir (m / 20+2), Giannis Fetfatzidis (m / 26+9) and Leonardo (m / 19+10) have left the club, but the team looks even stronger with the new signings Paulo Diaz (defender / from San Lorenzo), Nouh Al Mousa (midfielder / from Al Fateh), Josef (midfielder / from Fenerbahce), Jose Manuel Jurado (midfielder / from Espanyol) and Djaniny (forward / from Santos Laguna).Al Qadisiya continues to struuggle, as after a promising start to the season and four points from their first two games against Al Fateh (0--0/home) and Al Ittihad (3-0/away), the guests suffered six consecutive defeats in the next six rounds and stuck at the bottom of the standings (15th place / 1-1-6 7/14), four points behind the first team outside relegation zone.Al Ahli excels Al Qadisiya in terms of individual qualities of the players, the hosts are obviously in a much better shape than their opponents and I think that they are capable to cover this handicap.
