Al Nassr Vs Shorta Premier League Football Match 2023
The Arab Club Champions Cup is back in action with another round of matches this week as Al Shorta lock horns with an impressive Al Nassr side in an important clash at the Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Stadium on Wednesday.
Al Shorta finished at the top of the Iraqi Premier League standings last season and have been impressive on the domestic front over the past year. The hosts eased past Al Sadd by a 4-2 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this week. Al Nassr, on the other hand, secured a second-place finish in the Saudi Pro League table last season and have been inconsistent in recent months. The away side defeated Raja CA by a 3-1 margin last week and will be confident ahead of this match.
The newly acquired players for Al Nassr are settling in nicely, and once again, this squad demonstrated why they are a dangerous opponent in this competition. At a time when Cristiano Ronaldo was carrying this team, the five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or demonstrated determination and resiliency by scoring the first goal for his club in that encounter. In spite of this, Sultan Al Ghannam and Seko Fofana both scored a goal to help their team defeat Raja Casablanca in the quarterfinals of this event, which resulted in a score of 1-3.
Al Nassr came into this matchup having not lost any of their previous six matches, with their record now standing at two wins and four draws. Although they have scored in each of their last three matches for a total of eight goals, this team has also conceded goals in each of those matches, sometimes as many as three.
