Saudi league standings

Al-Nasr occupies second place and runner-up in the Saudi Professional League standings with 52 points, 7 points behind Al-Hilal, the leader, while Al-Hazm is in 18th and last place with only 14 points..

Al-Nasr aspires to win to continue its victories and positive results, and to continue the pressure on leaders Al-Hilal to achieve the title that has been absent from its coffers since 2018-2019..

Al-Hazm is suffering in last place in the Saudi League, and also lost to Al-Alamy in the first round match by five to one. Al-Hazm’s last victory over Al-Nasr dates back to September 2019 in the fifth round of the Saudi League, which was with a clean goal..

“Al-Alami” continues to creep behind the leaders of the league standings, Al-Hilal, and the victory over Al-Hazm increases the pressure on the “Blue Leader” before the expected El Clasico on Friday against Al-Ittihad, and with it, Al-Hilal may finally falter and the difference will be diminished..
