Ahmed Hegazi, Tarek Hamed win Saudi Super Cup with Ittihad
ittihad jeddah have claimed the 2022 Saudi super cup with a comfortable 2-0 victory over 10-man Al Fayha on Sunday.
The Tigers made their way to the final of the competition after defeating cristiano ronaldo's Al Nassr 3-1 last week.
Head coach Nuno Santo made no changes to his lineup with Egyptian duo Ahmed hegazi and Tarek Hamed starting for Ittihad.
The game had a quick start with Morocco's Abderrazak Hamdallah firing Ittihad into the lead inside the opening three minutes with a delicate chip.
Al Feyha's response came 10 minutes later as Sultan Mandash's volleyed strike at the edge of the box forced a good stop from Ittihad's Marcelo Grohe.
Despite their momentum, Al Feyha were handed a blow in the 24th minute and were reduced to ten men due to Abdulrahman Al-Safri's reckless challenge on Tarek Hamed.
Vladimir Stojković was called into action twice near the half-hour mark to deny Hamdallah and Muhannad Al-Shanqeeti and keep Al Feyha in the game.
Ittihad spurned a golden opportunity to double their lead at the stroke of half-time when Abdulrahman Al-Aboud missed a penalty with his shot going wide.
However, they finally scored their second goal of the night in the 48th minute with Hamdallah's header guiding the ball into the net.
The moroccan's brace ensured a vital win for Ittihad as the club won their first-ever Saudi Super Cup title having finished as runners-up in 2013 and 2018.
