Abha Club's Recent Form

Pitso Mosimane's Abha Club has been on an upward trajectory in their quest for survival in the Saudi Pro League (SPL). Despite their initial struggles, they have managed to secure positive results in recent matches.

Al-Nassr Looms Large

Next up for Abha is a formidable challenge: facing Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr. The match is scheduled for Tuesday night at Abha's Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Sports City Stadium.

The Mountainous Setting

Abha, the capital of the mountainous Asir region in southwest Saudi Arabia, sits at an altitude of 2,270 meters above sea level. That's 520 meters higher than Johannesburg's elevation of 1,750 meters.

Ronaldo's Impact

At 39 years old, Cristiano Ronaldo continues to dazzle in the more modest surroundings of the SPL. He has scored an impressive 33 goals in 34 league and cup games during the 2023-24 season. Since joining Al-Nassr in January 2023, Ronaldo has netted 47 goals in 53 games.

Al-Nassr's Title Aspirations

Despite Ronaldo's individual brilliance, Al-Nassr narrowly missed out on the league title last season, finishing second to Al-Ittihad. This campaign, they trail Al-Hilal by 12 points.

Crucial Match Ahead

With only nine matches remaining, both Abha and Al-Nassr are eager to secure crucial points. Sadio Mané, another key player for Al-Nassr, adds to the challenge for Pitso Mosimane's side.

Mosimane's Impact

Since Mosimane and his South African technical staff took charge of Abha, the team has shown improvement. From 17th position with just 14 points, they now have eight points from six matches. Their positive trend will be put to the test against Al-Nassr.

Relegation Battle

While Abha remains in the relegation zone, they are on a positive trajectory. A result against Al-Nassr would be a significant achievement, but the battle for survival continues with eight crucial fixtures ahead.

We invite your support as Abha faces this formidable challenge. Let's hope for an exciting clash between two determined teams.
