Bani Yas Clinch Last-Minute Win over Ittihad Kalba in ADNOC Pro League

In an exhilarating match of the ADNOC Pro League's matchweek 12, Bani Yas staged an impressive comeback to defeat Ittihad Kalba 2-1. This victory propelled Bani Yas to 16 points, leaving Ittihad Kalba with 12.



Bani Yas showed early intent when Fawaz Awana Almesabi's 6th-minute shot struck the post. However, Ittihad Kalba seized the lead in the 36th minute with Filip Kiss delivering a masterful long-range shot that eluded goalkeeper Fahad Aldhanhani. This goal was significant as Ittihad Kalba's fifth from outside the penalty area, closely following leaders Shabab Al Ahli and Sharjah.



The momentum shifted in the second half when Bani Yas was awarded a penalty in the 54th minute. Sultan Adel's foul on Youssoufou Niakate earned him a second yellow card, reducing Kalba to ten men. Tauljan Sulemjmanov confidently converted the penalty, drawing Bani Yas level.



Sulemjmanov has been pivotal for Bani Yas, contributing four of their last five league goals. The match reached its dramatic peak in stoppage time. In the 90+4 minute, Youssoufou Niakate became the hero for Bani Yas. After his initial attempt was saved, Niakate was quick to react, netting the rebound and securing a dramatic win. This last-gasp goal not only gave Bani Yas the victory but also exemplified their fighting spirit and resilience under pressure.
