Al-Ahly fans hope that the Syrian striker Omar Al-Somah will have a major role in Al-Hilal’s match in the Saudi League Clasico, on Friday.
Al-Ahly will host its counterpart Al-Hilal, on Friday, at the top of the matches of the 13th round of the Saudi Professional League (Prince Muhammad Bin Salman Cup League), at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium, “The Radiant Jawhara”.
Al-Somah is the historical top scorer in the Saudi Professional League with 128 goals, a number that he will seek to increase in the Al-Zaeem meeting, Friday.
The match will bring together the leaders and holders of the Saudi League Al-Hilal with 25 points with its host Al-Ahly, third in the ranking, with a difference of only 3 points, which means there is an opportunity for the owners of the land to pounce on the lead.
In the days leading up to the meeting, Al-Ahly management succeeded in signing a new contract with the Syrian attacker, for a period of 3 years until 2024, with an annual salary of 10 million Saudi riyals, according to what Saudi newspapers published.
Al-Somah has an amazing scoring tally against Al-Hilal, as he scored 12 goals against Al-Azraq, 8 in the Saudi Professional League, in addition to 4 in the King’s Cup, the Super Cup, the Arab Championship and the AFC Champions League.
The match will be the last chance for the Serbian coach, Vladan Milovic, Al-Ahly coach, who suffered two losses in the last two rounds of the local competition 1-3 against Al-Qadisiyah, before a hat-trick without a response to cooperation.
Al-Somah joined Al-Ahly in the summer of 2014, to lead the team to achieve many titles, most notably the Saudi Professional League, noting that the new contract means that the player will complete a full contract (10 years) with the team.
It is reported that Al Somah is the only player who managed to win the Saudi Professional League top scorer title 3 times in a row, without being equaled by any other player in this achievement.
