Al Hilal and Al Nassr have struggled a lot this season against the relegation battler Damac in the Saudi Professional League (SPL).
Damac were the main reason behind sacking Al Hilal’s and Al Nassr’s coaches this season.
Following Al Nassr’s draw against Damac in Matchday 10 of the SPL, the team’s head coach Rui Vitória was sacked from his position.
The same thing happened to Al Nassr’s former coach Alen Horvat, as he was sacked after his team lost to Damac 3-2 in Matchday 25 of the SPL.
On a similar note, Al Hilal’s coach Răzvan Lucescu was also sacked after his team was beaten by Damac in Matchday 18 in the SPL.
