Al Wahda celebrated a significant victory on Saturday evening at Rashid Bin Saeed Stadium, edging out host team Ajman with a decisive 1-0 win in a closely contested match.
The win catapulted Al Wahda to 12 points, ascending to the fifth position in the league table, while Ajman remained rooted to the bottom with a mere 3 points after enduring their fourth defeat of the season.
Ajman's resilience has not lasted for a long time as Al Wahda snatched the lead when Facundo Daniel timed his run perfectly to head in Guanca's cross in the 26th minute.
Guanca has been instrumental this season, with 9 goals and 9 assists over 30 league appearances.
Al Wahda dominated possession throughout the first half, which laid the foundation for their victory.
Despite Al-Wahda's continued dominance in the second half, the match lacked further goals.
Ajman's defensive resilience prevented any more slips, keeping the scoreline at a slim 1-0.
Tension mounted when Ajman was granted a penalty kick in the 78th minute, overturned upon video review. Al Wahda's goalkeeper, Rashed Ali, emerged as a hero by saving Ali Madan's penalty, replicating his successful penalty stops from previous league encounters.
