Al Jazira and Ittihad Kalba Settle for Thrilling 2-2 Draw in ADNOC Pro League

Al Jazira and Ittihad Kalba played out a 2-2 draw at Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in matchweek 16 of the ADNOC Pro League, bringing Al Jazira's points to 21 and Ittihad Kalba's to 14.

The match started cautiously, with the first real chance materializing only in the 38th minute when Ali Mabkhout's insightful pass set Neeskens Kebano up for a shot, only for Ittihad Kalba's goalie Eisa Houti to make a crucial save, turning the ball to a corner.

The deadlock was finally broken in the 51st minute by Daniel Bessa, who, following a pass from Mehdi Ghayedi, fired a shot from within the box that hit the crossbar and found its way past Al Jazira's goalkeeper Ali Khasif.

Ittihad Kalba extended their lead in the 60th minute with a precise long-range shot from Ghayedi. Al Jazira responded quickly, with Kebano scoring off a corner kick in the 64th minute to reduce the deficit.

The match reached its climax in the 87th minute when substitute Aboubakar Kamara netted the equalizer for Al Jazira, securing a hard-fought 2-2 draw in this high-stakes encounter.
