Khorfakkan and Ajman Share the Spoils in ADNOC Pro League

Khorfakkan and Ajman shared the spoils at Saqr bin Mohammad al Qassimi Stadium after playing out a 2-2 draw in matchweek 19 of the ADNOC Pro League on Friday.

It took 40 minutes for Khorfakkan to break the deadlock and open the scoring when Aylton Filipe was teed up inside the penalty area and sent a low cross into the six-yard box, where Fabio Goncalves found it easy to pass the ball into the back of the net, to make it 1-0.

Just two minutes before the two clubs headed to the dressing rooms for the break, Raphael Guimaraes cemented his side's lead when he was teed up by Aylton Filipe inside the box; as he kept his composure and curled the ball into the far bottom corner of the net.

In the 71st minute, Abdulla Saleh reduced the deficit for Ajman after towering above Khorfakkan's defenders to thump a brilliant header into the back of the net from a close range.

The visitors refused to give up as they kept searching for the equalizer, and they got what they wanted when Waleed Azaro rescued a point for his side when he towered above Khorfakkan's defenders to thump a powerful header into the far corner of the net.

The result means that Khorfakkan sit ninth with 21 points, while Ajman remain seventh with 33 points.
