Al Hilal announced the injury of its star Milenkovic Savic in the knee, with the nature of the injury not disclosed, although press reports confirm that it is in the cartilage.
Because of this injury, the Blue Wave will lose the services of its Serbian star for 3 to 4 weeks.
Savic, who joined Al Hilal last summer from Lazio, will certainly be away from three matches: Al Taawun and Al Hazm in the Saudi league, and Navbakhour in the AFC Champions League.
Of course, the 28-year-old will not feature in Monday's match against Mumbai City in India.
The possibility of Savic catching the Riyadh derby and the most important matches of the season against Al-Nasr remains unknown, given that the match will be held on December 1, and it will depend on the speed of his recovery.
Coach Jorge Jesus is likely to rely on a local replacement, Musab al-Juwair.
Al Hilal paid 40 million euros to Lazio to buy Savic, who quickly made his mark with the leader by scoring 4 goals and assisting two goals in 13 games in all competitions.
With this injury, Savic will join Neymar in the list of injured Al Hilal, although the Brazilian will not return before the start of the new season.
