Al-Hilal, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 3-1 Professional League triumph against Al-Raed.
In that match, Al-Hilal had 74% possession and 17 attempts on goal with 6 on target. For Al-Hilal, goals were scored by Aleksandar Mitrović (3', 29') and Kalidou Koulibaly (52'). Al-Raed got 2 shots on goal with 1 on target. Amir Sayoud (90') scored for Al-Raed.
Their most recent results highlight the fact that much respect should be given to the Al-Hilal defence. Al-Hilal have been stingy, resulting in the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past six clashes standing at 2. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.
In a total of 5 out of the previous 6 clashes featuring Sepahan, a minimum of three goals have gone in. The overall average number of goals per game within that spell is 4, with the average number of goals for Sepahan coming out as 2.5.

Therefore, we are anticipating a controlled 2-0 win for Al-Hilal when all’s said and done.
