What is the formation of Al-Hilal this season in the Saudi Professional League?

With Neymar, Malcom and Mitrovic, the Portuguese-led team, Jorge Jesus, should possess one of the strongest attacking lines in world football.

After signings before the start of the season, and strengthening the squad with important players who have played in European clubs, Al Hilal can have a very strong starting line-up. Let’s see how Portuguese coach Jorge Jesus can put together a squad.


Bayern Munich are said to have shown interest in signing Yassine Bounou, but Al Hilal’s offer of €21m outsold the German powers in the transfer window. The Moroccan international goalkeeper became the main target of Al-Hilal’s goals.

The Defenders

Yasser Al-Shahrani and Saud Abdel Hamid occupy the left and right wings, respectively, while Kalidou Coulibaly and Ali Al-Bulayhi play in the heart of the defence.


Ruben Neves will play in midfield with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who moved from Lazio to Al-Hilal. Marco Verratti’s transfer streak is another ongoing case, and his potential arrival could tempt Jorge Jesus to opt for a 3-4-3 formation. However, at the moment, Mohamed Kno is the best option to complete Al Hilal’s midfield trio.


Neymar, Malcom and Aleksandar Mitrović form the team’s attacking trio, with Mitrović being the main striker in attack. It is assumed that the Brazilian Michael, who has long experience in Saudi Arabia, will be the first choice for the alternative.

Crescent Summer Employment Update:

* Al-Hilal launched its plans for summer employment with an astronomical show by Lionel Messi.

*The Argentinian icon rejected the offer to join Inter Miami. However, this did not stop Al-Hilal from making several great deals for his team ahead of the 2023-24 season.

* Al-Hilal and Lucas Digne have been linked extensively. If the Aston Villa left-back signs a contract with the Riyadh club, Al-Shahrani may have to stay in the reserves.

* The unexpected arrival of Ruben Neves demonstrated the team’s commitment to signing players under the age of 30.

* Malcom, who left Zenit St. Petersburg to continue his career in Saudi Arabia, was appointed later, confirming this trend.

*Last week, the Riyadh team strengthened its offensive line with Neymar (from Paris Saint-Germain) and Mitrovic (ex-Fulham player).
