Al-Nassr will welcome Al Akhdood at Al-Awwal Park in the round of 16 of the 2023/24 Saudi Arabian National Championship. The hosts have had a strong campaign so far and are in the early stages of the title race with Al-Hilal. They just defeated Al-Wehda 3-1 with goals from Alex Telles and Cristiano Ronaldo. Currently, the team is ranked 2nd and only 4 points behind Al-Hilal.
Meanwhile, Al Akhdood is having difficulty achieving positive results this season and is currently sitting in the drop zone. They returned to the winning path in an important way in the recent match when they overcame Al Hazem with a score of 2-1. However, the losing results in the previous 4 rounds will certainly make fans of the team led by Mendonça right to worry.
Remember, the newly promoted team is ranked 16th on the current overall table with only 10 points obtained so far. Al Akhdood is the lowest scoring team in the Saudi Pro League this season with only 10 goals. Away field is also a barrier for them as 3/4 of their past trips away from home in all competitions have failed. Therefore, it will be difficult to look forward to the upcoming unexpected scenario.
