We say: Al-Nassr 2-1 Al-Taawoun
Al-Nassr would have been disappointed to begin the new league campaign with a defeat, but with their star names expected to return for Friday’s contest,
we think they will have the extra quality required to claim a home win.
There have been 31 previous clashes between the sides, with Al-Nassr winning 22 times over Al-Taawoun and losing on five occasions.
Of the last five encounters between the sides, Al-Nassrhas won four and lost just once.
