Last season's Arabian Gulf League champions Al Jazira started their title defence with a laboured 2-1 home win over newly promoted Ajman at Mohamed bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
 
Summer signing Romarinho latched on to a long pass behind Ajman defence before squaring for last season's top goal scorer Ali Mabkhout who was left with a simple finish into the empty net to put Al Jazira ahead in the 16th minute.
 
Ajman's Bakary Kone capitalised on a misplaced pass from Al Jazira centre-back Fares Juma to advance and supply a through pass to Waleed Khalid who finished first time between Ali Khaseif's feet to bring The Oranges level in the 62nd minutes.
 
With ten minutes on the clock, Romarinho took advantage of a mix-up at the heart of Ajman defence following a Mbark Boussoufa free-kick and finished with his left for a debut goal, giving Al Jazira an important win to continue their undefeated home run which lasted the whole of last season.
