The Brazilian seeks to net his next opponent and help his team win three crucial points during the title struggle, when Al Ittihad Jeddah is a guest of the agreement at Prince Muhammad bin Fahd Stadium in Dammam on Thursday.
The agreement is the only team that Romarinho has faced in more than two league matches without conceding a net, as its outcome in the past 7 matches was only two assists.
