Free Pick: Al Shabab vs. All Ittihad (Saudi Arabia Pro League) LOST 1:0

First round of the season. Shabab has a new manager after the assistant manager was leading the team from March. Romanian Marius Sumudica is the new manager, last year he was with Kayserispor and did not memorable things there. There were a few transfers for the home team such as Valerica Gaman (FCSB), Luiz Antonio(Chapecoense) and Constantin Budescu(FCSB). Al Ittihad brought on bench Ramon Diaz after he won the league last season with Al Hilal. In addition, cup winners are strengthened by several good players: Karim El Ahmadi(Feyenoord 31/2), Jonas(Flamengo 11/0), Gurman, Thiago Carleto(Atletico PR 12/2), Aleksandar Pesic(35/25 Crvena Zvezda), Valdivia(Sao Paolo) and Romarinho(Al Jazira 40/17). Seems that Ittihad has big ambitions in this season. PICK: Ittihad win 1.98 SBO
