uae.agleague.ae: September 15, 2018
 
Al Jazira emerged victorious in a five-goal thriller at Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium, defeating Fujairah 3-2 in matchweek 2 of the Arabian Gulf League.
 
After a conservative start, the hosts broke the deadlock eight minutes before the end of the first half as playmaker Khalfan Mubarak found Leonardo Pereira with a stunning pass behind the defence. The Brazilian controlled on the turn and applied a composed finish with his left.
 
Marcel Keizer’s men suffered a blow early in the second half after goalkeeper Ali Khaseif was sent off for a late challenge on Fujairah striker Mohamed Khalfan outside the penalty box. Substitute goalkeeper Abdulrahman Al Ameri was brought on for winger Ernest Asante. The challenge also resulted in Khalfan being stretched off to be replaced by Ahmad Moosa.
 
Despite their numerical disadvantage, the Pride of Abu Dhabi doubled their lead in the 59th minute as last season’s Arabian Gulf League Player of the Year Mubarak supplied a defence-splitting pass for Ali Mabkhout who finished into the bottom corner, adding his fourth goal of the campaign.
 
Al Jazira made it 3-0 five minutes from time as Mubarak complete a hat-trick of assists, laying off a pass for Pereira who unleashed a thunderous drive from 25 yards out that ricocheted off the post and via the back of goalkeeper Saleh Rabee into the back of the net.
There was plenty of action in the remaining minutes as the Wolves scored twice. The ball fell to Ahmed Moosa following a poor defensive clearance and the midfielder’s volleyed effort found its way to Mohammed Beneyttou who converted it first time into the roof of the Fujairah goal in the 87th minute.
 
Beneyttou won a penalty kick in added time after he was apprehended by goalkeeper Al Ameri inside the box. The Wolves’ number 9 stepped up and delivered from the spot for a second Fujairah goal. 
 
Despite nine minutes of added time, the final whistle came too soon for Ivan Hasek’s men who could not complete their comeback as the Pride of Abu Dhabi earned a 3-2 victory.
