Super Eagles stand-in captain, Ahmed Musa will have a huge responsibility on his shoulders on Friday when Al-Nassr files out against league leaders Al-Hilal Saudi in a potential title decider at the Prince Faisal bin Fahad Stadium in Riyadh, reports.
Musa, who was excused for Nigeria’s friendly win against Egypt because of the clash, made headlines during the week for two kind gestures, first motivating the Dream Team with a reward of 4 million naira before also giving the sum of 250,000 to a job seeker in Asaba.
Second placed Al-Nassr who are on a six- game winning streak, could leapfrog their guests should they win in front of their fans and put them on course for the league title with just five games left.
Musa, 26, has scored five goals and assisted another five but would however need to improve on that tally to help Al-Nassr earn their first win over the visitors in six outings.
Al-Nassr currently lay in second position with 55 points from 24 games whilst the visitors are two points better off with the same number of games played.
