In the King of Cup round of 16, Al Hilah will face Al Hazm club at home. Despite lacking the services of blockbuster Neymar due to injury, with the remaining key factors in the squad, they can still easily impose the game on their opponents.
After 52 minutes of play, Al Hilah found the goal to break the deadlock after Malcom was fouled in the penalty area. On the penalty spot, Ruben Neves decisively finished, not giving goalkeeper Al Hazm any chance to make a save.
As if the pressure was relieved, coach Jorge Jesus’ team played more sublimely in the following minutes. They scored two more goals from former Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, thereby sealing a strong 3-0 victory.
With this victory, Al Hilah added their name to the list of 8 strongest teams in the King of Cup.
Final results: Al Hilah 3-0 Al Hazm
Scored: Ruben Neves (52′, pen); Aleksandar Mitrovic (79′; 83′ – pen)
