The home side have enjoyed a great start to their league campaign and will consider themselves early title contenders. In their last league game, they beat Al-Wehda 3-0 with three different players getting on the scoresheet in the second half, including former Celtic winger Jot, who scored his first ever goal for the club.
Al-Ittihad sit top of the league table with 12 points from a possible 12 and will be looking to continue their strong form this weekend.
Al-Hilal have also performed well this season and are currently occupying the continental spots in the league table. They beat Al-Ettifaq 2-0 last time out in the league, with former Zenit St Petersburg player Malcom scoring midway through the first half before Salem Al-Dawsari joined him later in the half.
The visitors are third in the league table with 10 points from four games and will leapfrog their opponents with maximum points on Friday.
