Al Wahda Inflict 1st Defeat on Al Wasl

Al Wahda ended Al Wasl's winning run and inflicted their first loss in the league on Monday after securing a 4-1 big win at Zabeel Stadium in matchweek 23 of the ADNOC Pro League.

Al Wahda needed just five minutes to break the deadlock via a penalty spot as Omar Khribin stroked the ball into the back of the net. The Syrian international has been involved in seven goals out of the last 12 that have been scored by Al Wahda against Al Wasl.

The equalizer was quick to follow, as Soufiane Bouftini climbed above Al Wahda's defense to fire a powerful header into the bottom corner. Al Wasl is the most club, who scored headed goals with 11 during the ongoing season.

Two minutes after the hour-mark, Ahmad Noorollah launched a long-range strike that fooled the goalkeeper to give the advantage to Al Wahda.

Facundo Daniel's clinical finish four minutes before the break cemented Al Wahda's lead and ended Al Wasl's hope in the game.

Ahmed Noorollah increased Al Wasl's pain and made it 4-1 with a spectacular strike from inside the box.

The result means that Al Wasl are 1st with 55 points, while Al Wahda are third with 41 points.
