Tomorrow, the 19th round of the league will start and it looks like Hilal and Nassr will have a hard week till they meet in the finals for the Crown Prince Cup on Feb. 22.
Hilal has a greater pressure leaning on them as the team is, of course, still desperately hoping to win the league. This match against Nassr is one of the last strands of hope. Luckily for Nassr, they will be facing the match a bit more relaxed because of their standing now.
Speaking of good standing, our national team has accelerated a step higher by winning against China in Dammam last Wednesday in the Asian Cup qualifiers. This is definitely a reason to celebrate but I hope it doesn't cause overconfidence among our players and coaches. Let us be motivated to win but also keeping in mind that a single win is not a victory. If for anything, this means a harder work to come. Congratulations to our national team, we are looking forward to a better football.
