AFC Champions League: Al-Hilal vs Al-Ittihad Preview, Lineups, Head to Head & Telecast Details

Al-Hilal vs Al-Ittihad Predicted Lineups

Al-Hilal will host Al-Ittihad at Kingdom Arena for the first leg of their AFC Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday (6/3/2024). Kick off for the match will begin at 11.30 PM IST. The match comes just four days after they faced each other in the Saudi Pro League at the same venue when Al Hilal claimed a 3-1 home win.

Victory in the domestic league is clearly a valuable provision for Al Hilal to face Al Ittihad. Until now, Al Hilal, who is also the ACL runner-up last season, still holds a record of 28 consecutive matches always winning. While in the 2023/2024 Arab League standings, The Blue Waves are comfortable at the top, with a 9-point advantage over Al Nassr as the closest rival.

A different trend occurred to the defending champion of the Saudi Arabian League, Al Ittihad. Currently Al Ittihad is still scattered in 5th place in the 2023/24 Saudi Arabian League standings with 37 points or 25 points behind Al Hilal. Al Ittihad has failed to win twice in the last 5 matches.

When they met in the last domestic league event, neither Al Hilal nor Al Ittihad included their respective mainstay strikers. Al Hilal without Aleksandar Mitrovic, then Al Ittihad without Karim Benzema.

Al Hilal vs Al Ittihad Line-up Prediction

Al Hilal have the opportunity to play Aleksandar Mitrovic, to be paired again with Salem Al Dawsari and Malcom in attack. The backline will be without Hassan Al Tambakti, but the Blue Waves can rely on Ali Al Bulayhi and Kalidou Koulibaly.

Al Ittihad are still awaiting the recovery of star man Karim Benzema. On the other hand, Al Ittihad can rely on the team's top scorer, Abderrazak Hamdallah (21 goals). In the midfield, the duo of Fabinho and N'Golo Kante could be an option.

Al Hilal (4-2-3-1): Bono; Saud Abdulhamid, Kalidou Koulibaly, Ali Albulayhi, Renan Lodi; Ruben Navas, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic; Michael, Malcom, Salem Al Dawsari; Aleksandar Mitrovic. Coach: Jorge Jesus.

Al Ittihad (5-3-2): Abdullah Al Mayouf; Zakaria Al Hawsawi, Hassan Kadesh, Ahmed Hegazy, Luiz Felipe, Marwan Al Sahafi; Faisal Al Ghamdi, Fabinho, N'Golo Kante; Karim Benzema, Abderrazak Hamdallah. Coach: Marcelo Gallardo.
