Both teams started the game with their eyes on the three points.

Al-Ahli’s Salman Al-Moasher finally broke the deadlock in the 32nd minute, latching on to Abdel-Shafy’s pass, which put him in a scoring position before he calmly placed the ball to the left of Najran’s Abdul-Aziz Takroni.

After the goal, Najran’s players fell back, inviting pressure, but Al-Ahli’s strikers failed to capitalize before the end of the first half.

After the break, Najran pushed forward in search for an equalizer, while Al-Ahli were searching for a safety goal.

With this win, Al-Ahli sit on top of the table with 13 points, one point ahead of Al-Ittihad and Al-Hilal.
