The third match of the day saw Al Orooba and Al Wasl taking a point each in the game that took place at the Fujairah Stadium.




The hosts had just three shots on target, two of which were in the first half while Al Wasl were more dangerous in the second half posing five real threats on goalkeeper Ahmed Al Hosani, who managed to save four of them.

Al Jazira - Al Wahda




Al Wahda came away from the Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium with a valuable 2-1 derby win over Al Jazira on Saturday.




The first half saw a fierce attack and chances from both teams as both goalkeepers put in a brilliant performance during the first 45 minutes.




Al Wahda dominated the possession in the second half and translated it into two goals.




Fabio Martins was his side's best performer, scoring the winner and creating five chances, while the ADNOC Pro League's all-time top scorer, Ali Mabkhout, was the best among Al Jazira's squad, netting the opening goal and creating four goal-scoring chances.
