Al-Nassr has become a world football sensation ever since they splashed the cash for Cristiano Ronaldo, and now are looking to add some more trophies to their cabinet.
Under 2.5 Goals
Al-Nassr has by far the best defense in Saudi Arabia Professional League with only six conceded goals in 14 matches that they've played. They are overall over/under stats that paint a picture of an equal value when it comes to both sides of the equation. They had seven games with more than two goals scored and the other way around. However, they did play four straight matches that were low-scoring affairs. Al-Fateh has the same stats. When it comes to their h2h matchup, from the last ten games, five went over the mark in question.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Even though, as we mentioned in the first prediction, Al-Nassr has the best defense in the league, there is usual goal-scoring on both sides when it comes to the matches that these teams played against each other. Four out of their past five encounters covered both teams' scoring options. For obvious reasons, their defending, Al-Nassr didn't have too many BTTS games this season, but their last match covered that possibility when they lost to Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Arabia Super Cup match. Al-Fateh had three BTTS games in their last six matches. Somehow, their stats show that they go over that mark in every other game they play.
