DUBAI: Caio’s low strike made the difference as Al Ain defeated Al Wahda 1-0 at Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in a postponed game of the Arabian Gulf League on Sunday.

Al Ain started in an electrifying fashion, when Bandar Al Ahbabi unleashed a powerful shot from a long-range freekick that cannoned off Rashed Al Suwaidi’s right post just 18 minute into the game.

Five minutes later, Al Wahda responded through Leonardo Sousa. The Brazilian capitalized on Ahbabi’s defensive blunder and cut inside the box from the left flank, but his right-footed curler went just wide off target.

In the second minute of injury time, the Boss were reduced to 10 men, as Ahbabi was shown a straight red card following his careless tackle on Mohamed Al Abdulla.

Eight minutes after the break, the Clarets were dealt a huge blow after Mohamed Al Menhali fouled Al Ain’s Amer Abdulrahman in the midfield. The number 2 fullback went for an early shower as he was sent off after receiving a second yellow card.

On the 65-minute mark, Abdulrahman sent a defence splitting through pass towards Caio, who make it 1-0 for the hosts.
