Al Ain ... A Brilliant Adventure Ends with an ADNOC Pro League Title

Al Ain have achieved excellent numbers during their brilliant adventure towards claiming the 2021-22 ADNOC Pro League title for the 14th time in their history.




Al Ain's march towards lifting the trophy was not easy at all as they found fierce competition from Al Wahda, who kept pressuring Al Ain all through the season before the latter ended the title race three matches before the end of the season.




Al Ain head coach Sergiy Rebrov, as well as several players in the team managed to claim individual awards during the season several times, which proves their quality and technical skills.




Al Ain's campaign ends with the best attack, scoring 53 goals, and the best defence, conceding just 17 goals, as they are the only team that has lost just one match in the competition.




The Ukrainian coach preferred to play with a 4-2-3-1 formation for much of his time as it is a balanced formation that puts enough emphasis on the attack while still fully taking care of the defence of the entire pitch.



Rebrov played some encounters with the 4-2-2 formation.
