It is evident when football megastar and five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo departed from Manchester United for the second time and joined the Saudi Pro League, he created a ripple effect for fellow footballers when it comes to the next chapter of their professional careers in the sports. The influence of the Portugal national team captain and Saudi clubs’ insane monetary power were elevated to new heights this summer transfer window, when more and more famous ex-European club players are willing to leave the football-rich continent to join the Saudi Pro League.
That being said, fans are eager to find out the latest ranking of the best players in the Saudi Pro League this 2023/2024 Season, why is why we at OtherLeague.com have prepared the list of top 4 attacking trios for you! Scroll down right away, shall we?
Top 4 Attacking Trios in the Saudi Pro League This Season
#1. Mané-Ronaldo-Talisca (Al-Nassr)
Were there any doubts that the combination of the all-time leading goal scorer in professional football, the second-best player in the 2022 Ballon d’Or award and a player with 44 goals in 65 appearances for Al-Nassr cannot make it to the top of this list? The team which finished behind the winner Al-Ittihad in last season’s Saudi Pro League is desperate to recapture the league title after they added former Liverpool and Bayern Munich star player Sadio Mané to their attacking lineup that consist of Ronaldo and Brazilian forward Talisca.
It is also worth mentioning that the top attacking trio in the Saudi Pro League has already helped Al-Nassr winning the first trophy of the season, following a victory over Al-Hilal in the Arab Club Champions Cup in Ronaldo’s first full season for the club.
#2. Saint-Maximin-Firmino-Mahrez (Al-Ahli)
With the resume of a consistent winger in Newcastle United, a UEFA Champions League winner and a continental treble-winning member, the attacking trio of Saint-Maximin-Firmino-Mahrez would be considered solid not only in the Saudi Pro League, but also in the top-tiered football leagues in Europe. As such, Al-Ahli, the team which just earned its promotion to the Pro League from the Saudi First Division League last season, is more than capable of challenging the championship in its first season back to the highest division of association football in the Saudi league system.

#3. Neymar-Malcom-Michael (Al-Hilal)
Al-Hilal immediately ranked up in this list when they splashed the cash to sign Brazilian superstar Neymar from French Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain. The incoming transfer of the 31-year-old gifted forward during the peak period of his career may have raised eyebrows and broken the internet in the past week, but his arrival at the Saudi Pro League only went on to prove the Ronaldo effect which is brewing at an insane speed in the Saudi region.
Neymar, who finished in third place a couple of times in the Ballon d’Or award, will be teaming up with fellow countrymen Malcom and Michael at Al-Hilal, and the Riyadh-based club is also preparing to land Serbian forward Aleksandar Mitrović from Fulham in upcoming days.
#4. Jota-Benzema-Hamdallah (Al-Ittihad)
Defending Saudi Pro League champion Al-Ittihad, which edged out Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr on their journey to the title win, is looking forward to win their second successful championship with the arrival of 2022 Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema. The former Real Madrid captain and French international, who has 438 goals in his senior career, is winged by ex-Celtic flanker Jota and last season’s Saudi Pro League’s top scorer with 21 goals Abderrazak Hamdallah up front for Al-Ittihad, and the team in yellow jerseys are ready to score goals for fun in the Saudi Pro League this season.
