Al Wahda, Al Wasl Share the Spoils in Six-Goal Thriller

Al Wahda and Al Wasl shared the spoils in a pulsating 3-3 draw at Al Nahyan Stadium in matchweek 14 of the ADNOC Pro League on Saturday.


F. Kruspzky produced a moment of brilliance to fire home a stunning volley and put Al Wahda ahead after just nine minutes.


Five minutes after the break, Fabio De Lima hit the equalizer when Ali Saleh made a nice move from the right flank, skipped past three defenders, and sent a low cross to De Lima, who found it easy to drill the ball into the back of the net.


The hosts refused to give up as they kept searching for taking the lead, and they got what they wanted when Joao Pedro slotted the ball into the bottom corner.


Al Wasl turned the game on its head and scored two goals in two minutes to take the lead. De Lima hit the equalizer in the 81st minute when he timed his run perfectly to head in Geronimo Poblete's cross.


Two minutes later, Tomas Chancalay put the visitors ahead after unleashing a superb strike from outside the box into the top corner.


Al Wahda were awarded a penalty kick in the third minute of the stoppage time due to a handball on defender Soufiane Bouftini. Sebastian Tagliabue stepped up and stroked the ball into the bottom corner to make it 3-3.


The result means that Al Wahda sit third with 27 points, while Al Wasl come fourth with 26 points.
