DUBAI: Al Shabab snatched full points after beating Al Wasl 2-1 in the concluding Etisalat Pro League ninth round game at the Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Stadium in Al Shabab Club on Saturday.

The winners raised their tally to eight points taking 11th position while Al Wasl’s remained at 10 points that classify them in ninth place.

The game was characterised by poor and unconvincing performance from both teams despite of the few opportunities they created in the beginning of the encounter. They tried to find the back of the net but their forays were very weak and therefore all the work was in vain.

Al Wasl coach made a compulsory change when he fielded on Waheed Ismail to replace injured Australian player Lucas Neil only 10 minutes into the game.

The two squads went on their attempts through the entire first session but failed to score to end it with a goalless draw.

Hassan Ibrahim put Al Shabab into the lead only four minutes after the break with a nice header off a corner kick. The two coaches made some substitutions with all the hope to come up with a positive result.

Al Wasl Egyptian striker sent a strong shot in the 74th minute but the keeper saved bravely before the Uruguayan player Al Faro scored the equaliser bringing the game into parity five minutes later off a cross ball from Rashid Essa.

But Brazilian striker Bruno Edgar came to help his side Al Shabab to end the game with a 2-1 win when he headed the ball home five minutes to time.
