Al Raed form and stats

With 2 Pro League wins, 2 draws and 7 defeats from their home games, Al Raed are certainly not brimming with confidence. Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Raed, their manager B. Hasi and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.

A good away victory last time out for Raed, who won 3-0 against Abha (placed 13th). Before that game, the home loss against Al Wahda with the scoreline 1-3.

Al Raed decided the match against Abha in the first half, and held firmly on to their lead (3-0) without using too much effort. The team showed great control while saving some energy.

The home team are moderate favourites in this game. How does Raed handle that role? We have found nine games in our database similar to this one, based on the home odds. The stats for these games are six wins, two draws and one defeat.

Al Raed are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 15 goals in 11 games. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 21 goals have been conceded.
