Fujairah secure 4-2 comeback win over Al Dhafra

Fujairah came from behind to earn a 4-2 victory over nine-man Al Dhafra at Fujairah Stadium in matchweek 16 of the Arabian Gulf League on Sunday.

Al Dhafra grabbed an early lead after they were awarded a penalty in the eighth minute, with Pedro Conde converting from the spot. The Spanish forward doubled the guests' lead in the 35th minute after netting another penalty.

Kristiano Samuel pulled one back for Fujairah after sending the ball home off a rebound, as Al Dhafra headed into the break with a 2-1 advantage. 


The second half was a different story, as Al Dhafra suffered a huge blow when Issam El Adoua was sent off in the 57th minute and keeper Abdulla Sultan was shown a red card two minutes later, forcing their side to continue the game with 9 men. 


Fujairah capitalized on Al Dhafra's numerical disadvantage as Ahmed Suliman netted the equalizer in the 62nd minute. Samuel completed his brace and handed the hosts the lead after converting from the spot five minutes later. 

Substitute Ali Eid put the game to bed when he scored Fujairah's fourth goal in the 95th minute to hand his side a 4-2 win.

Fujairah are now 12th on 10 points, six points below Al Dhafra who sit in 10th place.
