Al Wasl Beat Al Nasr in Tense Derby to Extend Lead in ADNOC Pro League

Al Wasl secured a crucial 1-0 victory over city rivals Al Nasr in a tightly contested Bur Dubai Derby during matchweek 13 of the ADNOC Pro League, bolstering their lead with 33 points. Al Nasr remain in the ninth spot, holding onto 15 points after the defeat.



The game was marked by high tension and near misses from the kickoff. Early in the match, Al Wasl's Salem Al Azizi made a promising break down the left flank, delivering a cross that just eluded the reach of Haris Seferovic in the 16th minute.



The first half was brought to a dramatic close when Adel Taarabt's ambitious strike from distance rattled the crossbar in the 45+2 minute, keeping the scoreline even.



Al Wasl's consistent efforts in the second half were rewarded in the 73rd minute following a cleverly taken indirect free-kick. Al Nasr's attempt to play an offside trap was outmaneuvered, allowing Haris to assist Jung Seung-Hyun, who clinically finished scoring the decisive goal of the night.



Al Nasr's efforts to level the match saw Taarabt unleashing a potent strike in the 84th minute, which was skillfully saved by Al Wasl's goalkeeper Khaled Alsenaani. In the final moments, Adama Diallo missed an opportunity to widen Al Wasl's lead, with his shot narrowly missing the target.
