Here's where you can talk about the first final of the season, Al-Hilal v. Al-Shabab (Friday 2/27 at 17:20 GMT). Al-Hilal is topping the league, while Shabab has been unimpressive this season. However, Shabab always step things up in final matches. The last time the two teams met was in November, when Hilal won 2-0, but Shabab were missing at least 4 first-teamers, and have since added Ahmad Ajab and some Qatari guy. Anyway, I thought I'd add some trivia here: the two teams have played against each other in 8 finals; Hilal has won 5, and Shabab 3. The last final was the 2006 league championship final when Shabab won 3-0. They've played in the Crown Prince Cup final twice: 1999: Shabab won 1-0 with a goal from Abdullah Al-Sheehan 2000: Hilal won 3-0 Shabab are missing Majed Al-Amri due to injury; Hilal are missing Majed al-Marshadi due to suspension, and two of his potential replacements (Al-Ghannam and Khayrat) are injured. So, what do you guys think will happen? The way I see it Shabab are stronger on the flanks with their two fullbacks Shuhail and Hassan Muath. Hilal's fullbacks on the other hand are probably the weakest players in the team. Shabab's weakness is in central defense, but Hilal's conservative style with 1-striker might limit the effects of this. I don't know about this one; it's tough to call.
