FIRST TEAMADNOC PRO LEAGUE
Al Ain temporarily moved one point clear at the top of the ADNOC Pro League after securing a comfortable 3-0 win over Al Wahda on Friday at Al Nahyan Stadium.
Tin Jedvaj broke the deadlock and put Al Ain ahead after 25 minutes with a clever lob from midfield after catching goalkeeper Mohamed Alshamsi off his line.
Five minutes after the hour-mark, Laba Kodjo doubled Al Ain’s lead after poking the rebound wide from close range with Al Wahda’s goalkeeper stranded on the floor.
The third goal was quick to follow when Erik Jorgens sent a low cross inside the penalty area, where Caio Canedo coolly slotted the ball into the back of the net.
The result means that Al Ain sit first with 40 points, while Al Wahda are fourth with 37 points.
