1 Nasser Al Shamrani and Eduardo are showing signs of a partnership on crack. Nine goals among the two making Al Hilal’s 17 goals. Systematically dispatched their opponents eliminating any minor doubt in their capabilities. LAST WEEK: 2 HIGH: 1 | LOW: 5 Latest result: Won at Al Khaleej 6-1 Next SPL match: Home against Al Ittihad (28/10) 2 Victor Ayala – the man was on a mission today after missing the penalty. That miss sort of motivated him to get the winner of the game and stunner it was. الهدف الأول لنادي #النصر في الدقيقة : 84 ضد #الاهلي سجله فيكتور ايالا @AlNassrFC #دوري_بلس pic.twitter.com/4qE8bEAENL — dawriplus دوري بلس (@dawriplusksa) October 21, 2016 LAST WEEK: 5 HIGH: 2 | LOW: 7 Latest result: Won against Al Ahli 1-0 Next SPL match: Away at Al Faisaly (29/10) 3 Was uplifting to see Ittihad fans show the respect for late President Ahmed Masoud however on the pitch, all that momentum from previous games, has gone up in smoke after failing to win the first of many big-ticket games. LAST WEEK: 1 HIGH: 1 | LOW: 3 Latest result: Lost against Al Shabab 0-1 Next SPL match: Away at Al Hilal (28/10) 4 Cannot say they did not have their chances throughout the game. This year hasn’t gone according to plan for Al Ahli, but the opportunity remains for them to crawl up. Praying for the speedy recovery of GK Yasser Al Mosailem after suffering a horrific injury. LAST WEEK: 3 HIGH: 1 | LOW: 6 Latest result: Lost at Al Nassr 0-1 Next SPL match: Home against Al Khaleej (29/10) 5 The Power Rankings believe that Mohamed Benyettou via Sami Al Jaber just signaled Al Shabab’s intention to possibly win the title this season. LAST WEEK: 7 HIGH: 5 | LOW: 11 Latest result: Won at Al Ittihad 1-0 Next SPL match: Home against Al Fateh (29/10) 6 Squandered the multitude of chances they had. And they probably broke the record for the number of times a team could hit the goalpost. Like Ittihad, all that momentum has gone up in smoke. LAST WEEK: 4 HIGH: 1 | LOW: 14 Latest result: Lost against Al Wehda 1-3 Next SPL match: Away at Al Raed (28/10) 7 Was under the impression that they would bounce back from the drubbing at the hands of Al Hilal. Not the case. Were pushed further down into the oblivion by Al Raed. LAST WEEK: 6 HIGH: 3 | LOW: 7 Latest result: Lost at Al Raed 0-1 Next SPL match: Home against Al Nassr (29/10) 8 Still managing to challenge the status quo, i.e, if you get promoted – you should stay in the bottom quarter of the table. We hope that they realize their Cinderella-esque story could come to an end if they close the gaps in the defense soon. LAST WEEK: 8 HIGH: 7 | LOW: 12 Latest result: Draw against Al Qadasiyah 1-1 Next SPL match: Away at Al Wehda (29/10) 9 This image of Head Coach Nacif Beyaoui at the end of the game explains what winning this game meant. But the inconsistency worries us. LAST WEEK: 10 HIGH: 5 | LOW: 10 Latest result: Won against Al Faisaly 1-0 Next SPL match: Home against Al Ettifaq (28/10) 10 There was something blessed about this team from Makkah. Was visible today. Fought hard enough to come back from a goal down to scoring 3 on Ettifaq. Just like that, their losing streak of 4 games comes to an end. LAST WEEK: 12 HIGH: 6 | LOW: 11 Latest result: Won at Al Ettifaq 3-1 Next SPL match: Home against Al Batin (29/10) 11 After suffering the night’s onslaught in second half, starting to believe that their win against Al Shabab as far too distant which was merely a godsend. LAST WEEK: 9 HIGH: 10 | LOW: 13 Latest result: Lost against Al Hilal 1-6 Next SPL match: Away at Al Ahli (29/10) 12 Yes, one point is better than no points at all. But missed a penalty, failed to convert very open opportunities and tied against a team below them in the table. Not the start Romanian Head Coach Constantin Gâlcă was expecting in his first home game. LAST WEEK: 11 HIGH: 9 | LOW: 12 Latest result: Draw gainst Al Fateh 0-0 Next SPL match: Away at Al Qadasiya (28/10) 13 No wins in their last six, and only three goals in that run. Had several attempts at goal yet strong indications that future looks bleak unless somebody can start to finish. LAST WEEK: 13 HIGH: 13 | LOW: 14 Latest result: Draw at Al Taawon 0-0 Next SPL match: Away at Al Shabab (29/10) 14 They couldn’t close the game ‘at home’ against ‘Al Batin’. Time to start building for 2017 or is it a little too early to say that? LAST WEEK: 14 HIGH: 8 | LOW: 13 Latest result: Draw at Al Batin 0-0 Next SPL match: Home against Al Taawon (28/10)
