28/08/2023 9:00 pm
League leaders Al Ittihad travel to face Al Wahda in Monday’s Saudi Pro League action at the King Abdulaziz Stadium seeking to remain unbeaten at the start of the new season.
The Red Giant could move on level points with the visitors, while Al Ittihad could maintain their perfect league record this season.
A 1-0 defeat by Al Riyadh in the opening round of fixtures has turned out to be a blip for Al Wahda, whose response to that loss has been two successive wins in the league.
Beating Al Shabab and Al Tai has helped Giorgos Donis’ side pick up six points, and the team have scored six times while conceding once in the recent 180 minutes of action.
On the other hand, Al Ittihad are without blemish after three league matches this season, beating Al Raed, Al Tai and Al Riyadh without conceding a single goal.
They have scored nine goals in their opening three league matches, with Karim Benzema opening his league account for the club in the 4-0 win over Al Riyand.
Benzema has assisted two goals in the opening three league matches, taking him to three goal involvements to start the campaign – making the former Real Madrid superstar the go-to attacker Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
The top-scoring Tigers are favourites to take maximum points in round four, with their nine goals making the, the league’s most prolific side, and they remain the only club to keep clean sheets in every game.
