Bani Yas came from behind to earn a 2-1 victory over Fujairah on Thursday night at Bani Yas Stadium in matchweek 15 of the Arabian Gulf League held under the slogan "Human Fraternity" in celebration of the Human Fraternity Festival.
The guests got off to a quick start as Douglas Coutinho opened the scoring for Fujairah after 13 minutes only, when he fired a powerful shot from outside the box that left Bani Yas keeper helpless.
Bani Yas looked more dangerous in the second half and needed only three minutes to net the equalizer through Hasan Almuharrami who headed the ball home off a corner kick.
The Sky Blues then took the lead, thanks to Joao Pedro’s inch-perfect header in the 78th minute.
After losing to Al Wasl in matchweek 14, Bani Yas returned to winning ways to raise their tally to 29 points in third place, and Fujairah remained in the 13th place with 7 points.
