Abdoulay Diaby snatched the lead for the guests in the 43rd minute translating Abdulla Ramadan’s brilliant pass into the game’s opener, and netting his fourth goal out of his last five shots.
Al Wahda got back on track with the start of the second half where Ismail Matar was so close to equalizing the score one minute into the second period but he wasn’t enough.
Al Wahda had another real chance as Joao Pedro headed a ball in the 78th minute that missed the post by inches.
They finally realized a late equalizer through João Lima in the 88th minute that saw them share the game’s points with their rivals and keep the second place in the table on 21 points whereas Al Jazira remained in fifth with a tally of 20 points.
