Saudi Pro League - Al Ahli
The biggest match of matchweek 2 in the AFC Champions League goes on tonight

Hours separate us from the biggest match of matchweek 2 in the AFC Champions League which involves Al Ahli from Saudi Arabia and Al Jazira from the United Arab Emirates, to be played at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah at 20:10 Mecca Time.

We present to you 5 players that can decide the clash tonight:

Mohaned Asiri

One of Al Ahli’s most important players in the absence of Omar Al Somah, Asiri is the 2nd best scorer in the team with 7 goals this season.

Mbark Boussoufa

Boussoufa is crucial to Al Jazira’s play, as he presents a great option when breaking through defences and creating changes.

Momen Zakaria

Despite sitting on the bench from time to time, Zakaria is expected to be a decisive player for Al Ahli as he previously was for their namesake Al Ahly in Egypt.

Ali Mabkhout

The Emirati striker is the leader of Al Jazira’s attack and excels at scoring, finishing as top scorer of the UAE Arabian Gulf League last season.


The Brazilian midfielder is the defensive protection for Al Ahli, and is expected to be the man to prevent Al Jazira’s midfield from breaking into attack.
