King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Buraidah will witness the opening of our team’s matches in the group stage of the AFC Champions League for the fourth group at 11:15 pm tomorrow. The team will play against the Saudi Al-Taawon team, in a match considered the most important in this group, which includes, in addition to Al-Duhail and Al-Taawun, Iranian Sepahan and Uzbek Pakhtakor.
Tomorrow’s confrontation is the first confrontation for the new coach, Hernan Crespo, who took over the management of the technical team, succeeding Portuguese Luis Castro. The team had concluded all its preparations for this match this evening and performed its last training at the Al-Raed team stadium, where the technical staff put its last technical touches and reassured the physical and technical readiness of its players. The training included a number of technical exercises, in addition to direct shooting at the goal from outside the penalty area and dealing with counterballs.
