Shabab Al Ahli Celebrate Title Win by Defeating Ajman

Igor Jesus' 49th-minute effort helped Shabab Al Ahli celebrate the ADNOC Pro League title in style with a 1-0 win over Ajman at Rashid Stadium on Saturday.



The already-crowned champions did not take their foot off the gas with little to play for, with Igor Jesus Da Cruz hammering the hosts into a 49th-minute lead with a first-time low shot that went past keeper Ali Al Hosani.



Eight minutes after the hour-mark, Ajman's defender Mohamed Sayed brought Harib Abdalla Suhail down inside the box, prompting referee Suhail Abdulla Ali to point to the spot. The referee canceled the penalty after consulting the VAR.



The result means that the Dubai-based side ended their domestic campaign at the top with 57 points, while Ajman finished sixth with 44 points.
