Al Shabab will welcome Abha to Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium for a matchday 16 fixture in Saudi Arabia Professional League. The last meeting on 12th August 2021 ended in an Abha 2-1 win. Both sides have met five times in the most recent seasons. Al Shabab has won 2 matches, and Abha triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 2.60 goals, while both teams score 60% of the time.

Al Shabab's latest fixture against Al Ahli ended in an away 4-3 win. The Sheikh (Chief) was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Al Shabab scored in both halves in the 16th, 18th, 71st and 73rd minute.

Abha's recent game against Al Raed ended in a home 1-0 win. Although Abha didn't match their opponent's intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Abha deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 62nd minute.

Since the start of the season, Al Shabab is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 10 games on home soil. White Lions's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 40% of home games.

Abha has picked up 12 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Abha wins 0.89 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Abha kept a clean sheet in just 22% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. The Sheikh (Chief) is yet to lose at home, being undefeated in ten games.

Abha got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Saturday.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Al Shabab wins on average 2.20 points per home game, compared to 0.89 points per away game for Abha. My prediction is Al Shabab to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.77 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 52% of Al Shabab's home and Abha's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don't think this one on Saturday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 40% of Al Shabab's home and Abha's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
