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 27 May 2024, will also feature several high class coaches. Former Rangers and Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is now in charge of Al-Ettifaq and has signed Jordan Henderson from Liverpool. Other notable managers now in the Saudi Pro League include Slaven Bilic (Al Fateh) and decorated former River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo (boss of defending champions Al-Ittihad).

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

Malcom of Al-Hilal

It's been a dominant performance this season by Al-Hilal, led by the excellent Portuguese manager Jorge Jesus. The club nicknamed Al-Za'eem (The Boss) is working on an 'invincibles' season as they have yet to lose with a little over a third of the season remaining. Al-Hilal's record of 19-2-0 sees them sitting seven points clear of Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr team in what is looking like a two-horse race for the league title. Al-Ahli, currently sitting in third, find themselves nine points of the pace of the top two positions.

Al-Hilal's numbers are truly staggering as they've been tearing through the Saudi Arabian top flight. 64 goals and only 10 conceded point to a team that is truly a level above their opposition and what is even more frightening is that they are doing all of this without Neymar. That's not to say this Al-Hilal squad isn't loaded as is, with players like Mitrovic, ex-Barcelona and Zenit player Malcom, Milinkovic-Savic, Koulibaly, Ruven Neves, Renan Lodi and Moroccan keeper Bono. It's hard to envision Al-Nassr chasing down Al-Hilal with the form that they are in; the league leaders are currently riding a jaw-dropping 28 match winning streak across all competitions. All signs point towards Al-Hilal claiming their 19th Saudi Pro League crown. Our pick for the champion of the Saudi Arabian league is Al-Hilal!

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

  • Al Hilal - 1.12
  • Al Nassr - 6.00
  • Al-Ahli - 501.00
  • Al-Ittihad - 1001.00
  • Al-Taawon - 1001.00

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

Al-Nassr's Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo and Aleksandar Mitrovic look set to battle it out for the golden boot in the 2023/24 Saudi Pro League season. Ronaldo holds the edge at the moment with 22 goals with Mitrovic close behind with 19 goals. While Mitrovic's Al-Hilal are the more dominant side, it's hard to bet against Al-Nassr's Ronaldo to take home the scoring silverware. The legendary Portuguese striker had 14 goals in 16 matches last season and has now improved his goal scoring ratio with 22 goals in 20 matches this season. Despite being 39 years of age, Ronaldo continues to put up out-of-this-world goal scoring numbers. It wouldnt' come as a surprise to anyone if he finishes this campaign with an over 1.00 goals to game ratio with the rate he's been going at so far. Therefore, Cristiano Ronaldo is our pick to be the top goalscorer in the 2023/24 Saudi Pro League!

Saudi Pro League predictions - the odds on the top goalscorer

  • Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nassr) - 1.25
  • Aleksandar Mitrovic (Al-Hilal) - 4.00
  • Abderazzak Hamdallah (Al-Ittihad) - 21.00
  • Anderson Talisca (Al Nassr) - 101.00
  • Karim Benzema (Al-Ittihad) - 251.00
  • Firas Al-Buraikan (Al Fateh) - 251.00

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 Benzema

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!

The "both score" market is also an option to consider, as it is coming through at a high clip at 56% of the matches in the current Saudi Pro League campaign.
