Ajman and Al Wahda Share the Points

Ajman and Al Wahda shared the points in an encounter that finished 2-2 at the Rashid bin Saeed stadium in matchweek 23 of the ADNOC Pro League.





Ajman saw their points tally rise to 29 which put them in seventh place, while Al Wahda's reached 46 meaning their title challenge has mathematically come to an end, seeing as they're nine points behind leaders Al Ain with three games to go. Al Ain have a superior head to head record on the Abu Dhabi based side.





Omar Khribin threatened first but Ajman keeper Ali Al Hosani parried away behind him for a corner.




At the other end of the pitch, Waleed Al Yamahi charged into the penalty area and fired away but Mohamed Al Shamsi was more than equal to it.





Al Hosani once again saved from Khribin after 22 minutes of play.





The Syrian striker, lively throughout, came close to scoring after 34 minutes of play when he slammed a shot from range goalwards but his shot was slightly off-target, just missing the frame of the goal. Two minutes later, Joao Pedro hit the post after managing a shot while unmarked.





The deadlock was eventually broken in the 62nd minute by the hosts when Firas Belarbi netted his eighth goal of the season from the spot.





This is more than he scored in the previous campaign, which saw him net seven goals.




Al Wahda equalised 15 minutes later through Fabio Martins who slotted home Pedro's cross, a ball that Al Hosani couldn't deal with properly.




Ajman took the lead once again through Leandro Spadacio who took Oualid Azarou's pass before firing home with 11 minutes of play left.



Belarbi missed a golden chance to go further ahead when he skied a shot in the closing stages, before legendary forward Ismael Matar equalised for the final time deep into stoppage time to salvage a point for his team.
