Ayala’s late strike downs Abdel-Shafy’s Al Ahli

Egypt’s Mohamed Abdel-Shafy plays full 90 minutes, as Al Ahli suffers second league loss against Al Nassr.

The first half lacked energy and action, except for a couple of dangerous attacks by both sides. Those attacks where superbly defended, ending the first 45 minutes as a goalless draw.

The second half wasn’t much different from the first one. Both teams tried to maintain position in the midfield and defend their areas.

However, Al Nassr managed to break the deadlock in the 84th minute as Victor Ayala converted a beautiful free-kick in the back of the net making it one nil for the home side.

Both teams failed to score further goals until the referee blew the final whistle.

Following the loss, Al Ahli occupies the fifth position in the Saudi Pro League with ten points from six matches.

Mohammed Salama is a 20-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt's AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he's a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.
