The Saudi Professional League announced the date of the upcoming match between Al-Ittihad and Al-Hilal in the 27th round of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Professional League.
The League had postponed all matches of the round due to the death of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, President of the UAE.
The 27th round summit between Al-Ittihad and Al-Hilal will be held on May 23, after it was scheduled to be played next Sunday.
The Saudi League is witnessing a fierce struggle for the title of the current season between Al-Ittihad and Al-Hilal.
Al-Ittihad leads the league standings with 61 points, 6 points behind Al-Hilal, 4 rounds before the end of the competition.
Egyptian international defender Ahmed Hegazy plays for Al Ittihad Jeddah.
The date of Al-Hilal’s Clasico and the new union will give Hegazy the opportunity to recover and be more ready, after his recent return from injury.
Hegazy participated with Al Ittihad Jeddah since the beginning of the current season in 14 matches, during which he scored three goals and contributed to keeping a clean sheet in 5 matches.
