Currently, Al-Fateh rank 4th, while Al-Taawoun hold 14th position.
Al Fateh will be hoping to make a title challenge under the stewardship of Bilic this term, and we envisage the hosts getting the better of Al-Taawoun on home soil on Sunday afternoon. Both sides were evenly matched in the 2022-23 term,
however, the experience of Fateh’s Serbian boss should be enough to secure an opening-day success.
