Al Taawon shows that they want to end the year on a positive note. Although it’s indifferent in terms of points, having secured the 5th place, they are playing in great form winning the last 3 games in a row. In the past, Romanian coach Mirel Radoi was part of Al Taawon’s bench. He „paid” for the statements he made about being relaxed after the 0-2 home defeat by Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr, while in the previous round, they had lost to relegated Al Batin by 4-3, in a match where they had 0-3 lead. The next day he stated that what he said was misinterpreted, but management showed him the exit door. Former assistant Jose Barreto will perform official duty for the time being. Also, they have some absences like Sultan (24/0), Al Jabeeri (14/0), Martinez (8/0), and Fallatah (3/0). Al Taawon completed the three consecutive victories and wants to ideally combine their first game in their new stadium. It’s questionable how Al Taee will react after the strange dismissal of Mirel Radoi , but away from home they lose all their momentum, having only 1 win in the last 9 matches.
