With half of their job done, Al Nassr will look to wrap things up this week. Cristiano Ronaldo and his side will be up against Al Fayha in front of their home crowd in the second-leg clash of the AFC Champions League Round of 16. The previous encounter between the two sides saw Luis Castro‘s men secure a 1-0 win. The task is much easier this time around, as a draw or better will see the side punch their ticket to the tournament’s quarter-finals.

Al Nassr has been in excellent form recently and is unlikely to take anything for granted. Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent form will also boost the team, with the player scoring in his last two outings. Meanwhile, this could be a tough challenge for Al Fayha, as the side has struggled to deliver results this season. With all things considered, the writing is pretty much on the wall!

Al Nassr vs Al Fayha: Team Updates

Luis Castro might be without some of his key players heading into the fixture. Otavio picked up a knock in his last outing against Al Fateh and is unlikely to be available for selection. Both David Ospina and Naghed Al Najjar are currently out with injuries, which could see Waleed Abdullah handling the responsibilities between the sticks.

Meanwhile, Al Fayha will be without their key striker Mohammed Majrashi, who has been sidelined with a ligament injury since October. Apart from Majrashi, the side is likely to take to the field with their best eleven.
