Egypt’s Mohamed Abdel-Shafy plays full 90 minutes, as Al Ahli defeats Al Faisaly 2-1 in the 24th fixture of the Saudi Pro League.

Al Ahli started the game fiercely by applying pressure and maintaining position, in order to force Al Faisaly in their own area.

However, Al Faisaly took the lead in the 42nd minute, as Luisinho slotted the ball past Al Ahli’s goalkeeper into the bottom left corner.

Al Ahli managed to score the equalizer early in the second half, as Aqeel Al Sahbi blasted an accurate header past Al Faisaly’s goalkeeper.

In the 72nd minute Mohanad Asiri took the lead for the home side, as he placed a strong header in the back of Al Faisaly’s net, following a perfectly crossed ball by Hussain Al-Mogahwi.

Following the Win, Al Ahli currently occupies the third league spot with 49 points and are set to face Bunyodkor Tashkent in the AFC Champions league group stages on Apr.24.

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.
