Milos Kosanovic scored late as Al Jazira snatched an important 1-0 victory against Al Dhafra, at Mohammad Bin Zayed Stadium in matchweek 6 of Arabian Gulf Cup Group A on Friday.
 
Al Jazira started on the front foot as they threatened Al Dhafra in the 11th minute, when Faisal Al Matroushi received a loose ball near the edge of the box and sent a powerful shot that went just wide off the left post after a deflection off Al Dhafra's defenders.
 
The Pride of Abu Dhabi continued to dominate position, but failed to create further real threats on goal as Al Dhafra maintained locked defence until the referee blew the halftime whistle.
 
In the second half, Al Jazira carried on from where they left when Renner De Souza sent a crossed ball towards Thulani Serero, who squared it to Bruno De Oliveira. The Brazilian's right footed strike was brilliantly denied by Khalid Al Senani in the 65th minute.
 
The hosts continued to push forward and their efforts finally paid off in the dying moments of the game, as they were awarded a penalty kick after Mourad Batna was brought down inside the box by Badr Al Attas. Milos Kosanovic sent the ball home from the spot to snatch the full points for Al Jazira.
 
The late win takes Al Jazira to the fourth spot with seven points and will face Kalba in the next fixture. Meanwhile, Al Dhafra remain in the third position with seven points before hosting Al Nasr in matchweek 7 of the Arabian Gulf League.
