Mabkhout Breaks Record as Al Jazira Defeat Al Dhafra 3-0 in the ADNOC Pro League

Ali Mabkhout scored as Al Jazira managed to defeat Al Dhafra 3-0 in the postponed match from the 14th matchweek due to the Pride of Abu Dhabi's participation in the FIFA Club World Cup.




Leonard Amesimeku's own goal gave Al Jazira an early lead at the Hamdan bin Zayed Stadium when he converted a cross into his own net in the 26th minute.




Only three minutes after the restart, Al Jazira were awarded a penalty kick after Ali Mabkhout was pulled down in the box, and the Emirati forward himself stepped up and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to add the second goal for his team and write his name in Emirati football history books.




He surpassed the 175-goal mark set by former Al Wasl legend Fahad Khamees to become the ADNOC Pro League's all-time top scorer with 176 goals.




Oumar Traore cemented his side's lead and sealed the victory when he met Abdulla Idrees's cross with a powerful header from six yards out to make it 3-0.



Al Jazira are now in fifth place on 26 points in the league table, while Al Dhafra remain in twelfth place with only ten points.
