Where to watch Al Taawoun vs Al Nassr live stream, TV channel, lineups, prediction for Saudi Pro League match

Al Nassr face a Saudi Pro League trip to Al Taawoun on December 30 in their final game of 2023.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s side will head into a six-week break after this clash before returning in mid-February with the AFC Champions League Round of 16. Having enjoyed a run of four consecutive wins in all competitions, scoring 18 goals in the process, they will want to end the year on a similarly high note.

The league campaign will pause at the halfway stage with Al Nassr set in second place regardless of their result in this match. They trail unbeaten league leaders Al Hilal by seven points, meaning they will have plenty of work to do in the title race during the second half of the season.

The Sporting News looks at the key details ahead of this game, including how to watch it across the world, kickoff times and the latest lineup news.

Al Taawoun vs Al Nassr prediction

Al Taawoun sit in fourth place in the table and boast the third-best defence in the league, but they were stung by a clinical display of finishing by Al Fateh a week ago. Given Al Nassr’s recent goalscoring form, it seems likely that we could see a relatively high-scoring affair again.

Prediction: Al Taawoun 2-2 Al Nassr
