On Friday, the Al-Hilal first football team will host its Al-Sharq counterpart, a “second-division”, in its first test match within its preparation program, during the Saudi Roshen League’s suspension due to the 2022 World Cup.
The confrontation with the East is one of the 4 test matches that Al-Azraq will play during the hiatus, including one against Newcastle of England, on the eighth of next December, as part of the activities of the Diriyah 2022 season.
The capital city team finished its preparations for the Al Sharq meeting with morning training, Thursday, under the supervision of Argentine coach Ramon Diaz, who imposed various fitness exercises using the ball, followed by a maneuver on part of the stadium that included an explanation of a number of tactical sentences.
The training session witnessed the participation of Musab Al-Juwair after he finished participating with the Saudi Olympic team, which won the West Asian Cup title, which concluded in Jeddah last week.
Al-Azraq occupies fourth place with 17 points collected from 5 victories and two draws, while it suffered one defeat after passing 8 rounds of the Saudi Roshan League, knowing that it will return to the league on the 25th of next December, when Al-Batin receives its guest, in the ninth round competitions.
