High-flying Al Hilal visit the Prince Hathloul bin Abdul Aziz Sports City Stadium on Saturday to face Al Akhdoud in the Saudi Pro League, hoping to continue their unbeaten start.
With six wins and two draws from their opening eight games, Al Hilal have started the 2023-24 campaign on a resounding note and sit at the top of the table with 20 points.
In fact, the Blue Waves are the only team undefeated in the competition this season.
Their last three matches in all competitions have also ended in wins. Jorge Jesus’ side beat Al Jabalain and Nassaji Mazandaran in the King Cup of Champions and the AFC Champions League, respectively, amid what was a 2-0 defeat of Al-Shabab in the league.
Al Hilal will be keen to continue their unbeaten run and should be confident of their chances against a struggling side like Al Akhdoud, who have collected just seven points from eight matches.
The southern side picked up just their second top-flight win of the season last weekend, beating Al-Raed in a late 2-1 win. Andrei Burca scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute as Al Akhdoud climbed up to 13th in the table.
