UAE Pro-League Wrap: Al Ain secure victory as Al Shaab secure safety

25 May 2013 19:19

UAE Pro-League champions Al Ain finished their campaign with a 2-1 victory over Al Nasr on Friday.

The away side took a surprise first-half lead, as Bruno Cesar opened the scoring in just the sixth minute at the Tahnoun Bin Mohamed Stadium.

But Jires Kembo-Ekoko equalised in the second-half, before an Asamoah Gyan penalty in the 89th minute secured the comeback.

Al Jazira surrendered a 2-0 lead at home to Al Wahda, as the game finished at 2-2.

Fernandinho and Sultan Barghash scored within six minutes of one another, as it looked like they would coast to a comfortable victory.

But Papa Waigo scored in the 39th minute, before Mohamed Al Shehhi scored in second-half injury time to rescue a point for the away side.

Al Shaab secured a priceless 2-1 away victory to Al Shabab, to ensure they escaped relegation.

Nasser Khamis Hassan open the scoring in the first-half, before Manei Mohamed Ali looked to have rescued a point in the second-half.

But Michael N'Dri scored the winner in the 74th minute to consign Dibba Al Fujairah to relegation, which had always looked likely with a three-point deficit and inferior goal difference.

Dibba could only secure a 3-3 draw away at Ajman.

Founeke Sy and Driss Fettouhi put Ajman 2-0 ahead, but Alexssander Medeiros and Khali Al Ali levelled the scores before half-time.

Fettouhi looked to have given the home side victory with his second of the game, but Medeiros struck in the 87th minute to earn the away a point.

Second place Al Alhi finished their season with a disappointing 2-1 defeat away to Al Dhafra.

Amara Diane and Makethe Diop put Al Dhafra into a 2-0 lead, before Hamad Alhisani scored a consolation goal in the 79th minute.

Bottom-of-the-league Al Ittihad Kalba ended their season with a whimper as they were defeated 3-1 at home by Dubai.

Abdullah Al Jamhi put the home side in front in the 19th minute, but Careca equalised before half-time.

Faisal Ali put the away side ahead, before Careca secured the victory in the 68th minute.
