All eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo as Al-Nassr are set to take on Al-Wehda in the Saudi Pro League on Thursday.
The former Manchester United star scored his first goal in an Al-Nassr shirt last week deep in stoppage time to help rescue a point against Al-Fateh. Al-Nassr are currently at the top of the Saudi League with 34 points from 15 matches and will hope to extend the lead further with a win. Moreover, they have an impressive recent record against Al Wehda and have won 14 out of the last 21 matches played between the two teams.
Meanwhile, Al-Wehda head into this fixture on the back of a 2-0 loss to Al-Fayha. It was their third defeat in the last five games. However, they will hope to turn things around at home with the support of their fans.
