Shabab Al Ahli share spoils with Al Ain


Shabab Al Ahli could hold top-of-the-standings Al Ain to a 1-1 draw at Rashid stadium in the eighth week of ADNOC Pro League.

Having racked up 17 points in seven weeks, Al Ain went into the game hoping they can flee away with the standings’ top spot they have kept for several weeks, especially, after Al Jazira’s win over Baniyas yesterday left then only one point behind Al Ain.

Most of the first half’s action took place in the last five minutes when Kouame Autonne put the visitors ahead with a goal in the 44th minute two minutes before Eduardo leveled the score for Shabab Al Ahli in the first minute of the added time.

The draw enabled Al Ain to keep the standing’s lead for a further week as they earned their 18th point; two points clear of closest chasers Al Jazira, whereas Shabab Al Ahli remained in third place on 15 points.
