Shabab Al Ahli Crowned ADNOC Pro League Champions Following 2-1 Win over Bani Yas

Shabab Al Ahli won their eighth ADNOC Pro League title and their first in seven years after a 2-1 win at Bani Yas gave the Dubai-based side an unassailable lead in the standings.

One minute after the hour-mark, Sasa Ivkovic broke the silence and gave the lead to Bani Yas when he rose high to head in Nicolas Gimenez's cross.

The Dubai-based side turned the game on its head in just three minutes when Azizjon Ganies dampened the spirits of Shabab Al Ahli's fans as his first-time volley took a slight deflection that wrong-footed the goalkeeper to hit the equalizer in the 70th minute.

Three minutes later, Yahya AlGhassani sparked jubilant celebrations among the visiting fans when he fired in the winning goal after picking up the ball on the left flank as he cut inside the penalty area before drilling the ball into the back of the net with a sensational finish.

Shabab Al Ahli have 54 points, securing their position at the top of the table, while Bani Yas are 11th with 23 points
