VIDEO: Abdel-Shafy assists as Al Ahli clinches win
King Abdullah Sports City Stadium saw Al Ahli Jeddah seal their 12th win in the ALJ League this season as they beat Alshoullah 3-0.
Hussein Al-Mogahwi met Abdel-Shafy’s cross with a header 17 minutes into the first half to open the scoring following brilliant team play from the hosts. The visitors fought back but were unsuccessful in scoring an equalizer.
The hosts furthered their lead in the 58th minute of the match when Syrian striker Omar Al-Soma tapped the ball into the net.
Four minutes before regulation time ended, Saleh Al-Amri, who was substituted in the 65th minute, scored a beautiful goal from outside the box to secure all three points for his team.
With this win, Al Ahli held their position in second place with a points tally of 43 points, just five points away from league leaders, Al Nasr. Al Ahli will get a chance to close the gap next Sunday, March 22, as they face Al Nasr away.
