Presentation and predictions Saudi Pro League

Saudi Pro League Football predictions

The Saudi Arabian league had been known for decades as an opportunity for footballers to sign attractive contracts. But the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, signed in the middle of last season by Al Nassr for €200 million for two seasons, has changed the paradigm of the Saudi Pro League. The presence of the Portuguese international has attracted the focus of world football. Recent high profile signings have proved correct the view of Ronaldo that more top players would head to Saudi Arabia.  

The Saudi government decided to invest heavily in the sport, creating a public investment fund and endowing four clubs - Al Hilal, Al-Ahli, Al-Ittihad and Al Nassr - with astronomical sums. The Saudi Pro League has thus welcomed top footballers in the fullness of their abilities, such as N'Golo Kanté, Karim Benzema, Marcelo Brozovic, Sadio Mané, Fabinho, Édouard Mendy, Riyad Mahrez, Roberto Firmino, Allan Saint-Maximin, Sergej Milinković-Savić and Kalidou Koulibaly, not to mention Portuguese players Rúben Neves and Jota.

The Saudi Pro League, which will be played between 11 August 2023 and 5 May 2024, will also feature several high class coaches. Former Rangers and Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is now in charge of Al Attifaq and has signed Jordan Henderson from Liverpool. Other former Premier League managers now in the Saudi Pro League include Slaven Bilic (Al Fateh) and Nuno Espirito Santo (boss of champions Al-Ittihad).

Saudi title prediction: who will win the 2023-24 Saudi Pro League?

Saudi Pro League betting tips

Despite signing Cristiano Ronaldo, Al Nassr missed out on the title. Nuno Espírito Santo's Al-Ittihad were stronger, finishing the competition five points ahead of the Riyadh outfit. The Jeddah-based side only suffered two defeats during the season, a sign of their consistency.

In the projection for the new season, Al-Ittihad is considered a favourite by most bookmakers, which is justified not only by the title won in 2022/23, but also by the arrival of a striker of the size of Karim Benzema. Al Nassr share second place with Jorge Jesus' Al Hilal, while Al-Shabab are considered the fourth main contenders for the final top spot.

Al-Ahli, one of the clubs involved in the Saudi state project, are tipped as outsiders, mainly because last season they were in the second tier, which they won easily after a surprise relegation two seasons ago.

Saudi Pro League predictions - the odds on the favourites for the title of champion of Saudi Arabia

  • Al-Ittihad - 2.88
  • Al Nassr - 3.75
  • Al Hilal - 3.75

Saudi Pro League top scorer prediction 2023-2024: which player will score the most goals?

Saudi Pro League Benzema

Moroccan international Abderazzak Hamdallah was last season's top scorer with 21 goals, one more than Brazilian Anderson Talisca, the former Benfica player and Cristiano Ronaldo's team-mate at Al Nassr, and two more than Al Hilal's Odion Ighalo. The race for this individual trophy promises to be fierce in the new season, not least with the arrival of Karim Benzema, who is coming off a highly productive season with Real Madrid. The French striker from Al-Ittihad is therefore a leading contender for the Saudi Pro League's top scorer award, joining the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Anderson Talisca, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané. Saudi youngster Firas Al-Buraikan, just 23, was the best-performing local player (17 goals) and promises another prolific campaign in the colours of modest Al Fateh.

Saudi Pro League predictions - the odds on the top goalscorer

  • Karim Benzema (Al-Ittihad) - 2.25
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nassr) - 3.00
  • Abderazzak Hamdallah (Al-Ittihad) - 13.00
  • Sadio Mané (Al Nassr) - 13.00
  • Anderson Talisca (Al Nassr) - 21.00
  • da Silva Romarinho (Al-Ittihad) - 21.00
  • Moussa Dembele (Al Ittifaq) - 21.00

  • Riyad Mahrez (Al-Ahli) - 26.00

Beginner Guide - how does the Saudi Arabian football league work?

The Saudi Arabian Premier League is this season contested by 18 clubs in a classic two-round system, with all teams playing each other twice, home and away. Until 2022/23, the competition was contested by 16 teams, with the enlargement taking place for the upcoming financial year, after only two clubs were relegated and four promoted in the previous campaign.

At the end of the 34 rounds, the following places decide the fate of some clubs:

  • The club that finishes first becomes the Saudi champion and qualifies for the group stage of the Asian Champions League.
  • The team finishing second qualifies for the group stage of the Asian Champions League.
  • The 16th, 17th and 18th placed clubs are relegated to the second division of Saudi football.

The competition attracts a lot of punters all over the world with the excitement throughout the season and top players vying for the top spots.

How to make good predictions on Saudi Pro League matches?

Saudi Pro League predictions

Making accurate predictions in the Saudi Pro League requires first of all a good knowledge of the competition and its players, but also a set of good practices to follow. As a football expert who has spent the last few weeks studying the Saudi league, SportyTrader offers you the best advice for making good predictions in this competition:

  • Analyse the form of each team in the Saudi Pro League
  • Know the squad of each team
  • Know the style of play of each club
  • Realise the real importance of the game
  • Compare the odds of all bets on the Saudi Pro League

These five tips for predicting Saudi Pro League matches are among the most relevant when it comes to betting, but they are obviously not the only ones you should follow. They are essentially points of reference for making reliable predictions. Find out the details of each of these tips below!

Analyse the form of each team in the Saudi Pro League

Saudi Pro League - Ronaldo

Checking and analysing the latest results of the clubs involved in the game you want to bet on will be the first step before developing a reliable prediction. Cristiano Ronaldo's Al Nassr travel to lowly Al Fateh, but the Riyadh side have gone five straight away games without a win and their opponents have yet to lose at home? Then it might be interesting to bet on Al Fateh, even though Al Nassr are favoured, or to bet on another type of market, particularly the number of goals. To go a little further on this point, it is important to emphasise the following: you should not only consult the results of the last matches, but also analyse the performances of each team. Ball possession, expected goals (xG), number of shots realised, fouls committed or conceded, etc. These data are all relevant.

Know the squad of each team

The second point you should take into account for your Saudi league predictions, but also in general for football predictions: know the squad of each team. This season, the Saudi Arabian league has changed several rules and one of them concerns the number of foreign footballers. Each team can have up to eight players of other nationalities, and all eight can be on the pitch at the same time. This significantly reduces the weight of local players. Previously, clubs have relied mainly on foreigners for the offensive sector, but this new rule has shown a diversified planning, which reinforces the importance of knowing each squad to detect its strengths and weaknesses, as well as being aware of possible injuries or punishments. For example, if Cristiano Ronaldo and Anderson Talisca are unavailable, Al Nassr will have fewer attacking options.

Know each club's style of play

Saudi Pro League - Ever Banega

The Saudi league is known for having some tactical limitations, something that should also change with the arrival of more foreign players. It is still essential to know the style of play of each club, researching the ideas of the coaches and the potential of the players. It is known, for example, that Jorge Jesus is a coach of offensive philosophy and has quality players to put his ideas into practice; but Pedro Emanuel, at the service of Al Fateh, may have to opt for a more defensive football, given the difference in individual arguments. In that sense, a clash between Al Hilal and Al Fateh could be more closed and tactical. These are things to bear in mind when making your predictions for the Saudi Pro League.

Realise the real importance of the game

The Saudi Arabian championship has only three objectives at stake: the title, qualification for the Champions League (reserved only for the top two) and the escape from relegation. This means that, particularly in the later stages of the competition, some clubs may be just playing catch-up. For example, Al-Ahli hosts Al-Okhdood with three rounds to go. The Jeddah outfit are favourites to win the title, but they are already out of contention and have no chance of Champions League qualification, while Jorge Mendonça's side are still looking to stay up. In this scenario, betting on a surprise could be an interesting option.

Saudi Pro League - Roberto Firmino

Finally, our last piece of advice: always analyse the odds offered by bookmakers. Each operator defines its own odds before making them available to its users. Thus, it is not uncommon to find that an odd is higher on one site than on another, thus making it more profitable. Imagine you want to bet on Al Hilal beating Al-Khaleej. Bwin suggests this market at 1.50, while bet365 has the same option at 1.55. For the same bet there will be a significant difference, which in the long run can have a relevant impact on your bankroll. We therefore advise you to register with as many bookmakers as possible, so that you never miss out on the best odds available on the market. And you can also take advantage of welcome bonuses!

What not to do for your Saudi Pro League predictions

Saudi Pro League predictions: the statistics to know 

Saudi Pro League stats

In order to be successful in betting on the Saudi league, you should follow the advice we have described above, also consulting the main numbers of the competition. We have listed below the most important statistics to take into account for your predictions on the new edition of the Saudi Pro League.

If you want to bet on the Saudi Pro League, and taking into account the numbers of the last edition of the competition, the most interesting markets seem to be the "more than 2.5 goals" (it occurred in 55% of the meetings) and also the victory of the home team (46%). The "both score" market is also an option to consider, since in 2022/23 it happened in 48% of the matches in the Saudi league.
