A goal from Gabriel De Souza and a brace from Soufiane Bouftini helped Al Wasl to secure a 3-0 home win over Khorfakkan at Zabeel Stadium in matchweek 13 of the ADNOC Pro League on Sunday.
Al Wasl wasted no time and took an early lead less than nine minutes into the game when Ali Saleh sent an inch-perfect corner into the six-yard box, where Soufiane Bouftini towered above Khorfakkan's defense to fire a powerful header into the back of the net.
In the 23rd minute, Bouftini grabbed his brace and cemented his side's lead when Khorfakkan's defender Mehdi Abeid failed to properly clear the ball from a corner kick as it fell to the Moroccan forward, who planted a header into the back of the net, to make it 2-0.
Just a minute after the hour-mark, Gabriel De Souza sealed the victory for his side when he ran onto a superb upfield pass from Tomas Chancalay to storm past the defense and clear in on goal.
The victory means that Al Wasl sit third with 25 points, while Khorfakkan remain tenth with 15 points.
