Giorgos Donis will be in charge for the first time as Al-Hilal manager facing Al-Sadd for the Asian Champions League.
The Greek manager is only a few days at the club, however he is confident ahead of his debut.
“It's really tough to know everything in just a few days, but I have already watched many games and I have identified where we are strong and where we need improvement. The atmosphere is good, so that helps,” Donis said.
Also Al-Hilal striker Giorgos Samaras added: “I'm ready as I have overcome the injury that I suffered. I'm back in contention if the manager wants me to play. It's very important to carry on winning in the competition.”
