Our prediction for this match:
Saudi Arabia and Kuwait take on each other at Mrsool Park in a friendly international. Saudi Arabia boss Herve Renard will use this match as a good test for the 2020 World Cup qualifier against Palestine. The Saudis suffered only one loss in the previous seven friendly matches at home ground, and they are surely capable of beating Kuwait in Riyadh.
Andreas Carrasco’s men continue to struggle in 2021, with the team suffering back-to-back defeats to Palestine and Iraq. Considering that Saudi Arabia are eager to get their revenge on Kuwait for a 3-1 loss at Gulf Cup of Nations, we are tempted to put our money on the home team. One of the men to watch in the home side will be Fahad Al Muwallad, who has netted four goals in 19 appearances for Al Ittihad so far this season.
