Al Ahli overcame Al Jazira with a 1-0 win at the Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium to secure their place in the 2016/17 Arabian Gulf Cup Final.
 
A barrage of early Al Ahli attacks saw near misses from Abdulaziz Sanqor, Everton Ribeiro and Makhete Diop within the opening fifteen minutes. By the 19th minute the pressure had paid off as Diop opened his scoring account for the Red Knights following his winter window move, leaping highest in the box to nod Sanqor's cross beyond Ali Khaseif and take a 1-0 lead.
 
Into the second half, Al Jazira's best attempt to get back on level terms saw Ali Mabkhout put the ball in the back of the net, but not before the linesman's flag was raised and the effort was ruled out for offside. With no further goals in the encounter, it was Al Ahli who held onto their 1-0 advantage to book a place in the 2016/17 Arabian Gulf Cup Final.
