Al-Ittihad vs Al-Riyadh: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch

Al-Ittihad will look to resume their Saudi Pro League campaign on a high note when they welcome Al-Riyadh at Prince Abdullah Al Faisal Stadium on Sunday.

It has been a really disappointing defence of the Saudi Arabian crown by Al-Ittihad as they return to Saudi Pro League action sitting fifth in the table with Marcelo Gallardo, who took over from Nuno Espirito Santo, trying to get them back on track with little fruition.

They were held to a goalless draw by Navbahor in their most recent outing in the first leg of their AFC Champions League Round of 16 tie. They now face an Al-Riyadh side who are down in 15th position with 19 points from as many games, hovering just above the relegation zone.

Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.

Team news & squads

Al Ittihad team news

Karim Benzema's spell in Saudi Arabia has hit another snag after his Al-Ittihad manager Marcelo Gallardo made a huge decision to leave the striker out of his squad for their 0-0 draw against Uzbek side Navbahor Namangan on Thursday in their Asian Champions League last-16 tie.

The hosts have plenty of injury concerns as well, especially in the defensive department. Ahmed Sharahili suffered a cruciate ligament tear back in September and has been out ever since. Ahmed Bamasud is recovering from the same issue. Brazilian Luiz Felipe is struggling with a muscle tear, while Muhannad Shanqeeti and Omar Hawsawi are also sidelined.
