    What a thriller of a match this is turning out to be. Almoez Ali does well to wriggle away from a couple of Al Nassr players to create some space.

  • October 25, 2023 01:03

    Concern for Al Nassr as Alamri seemed to have landed awkwardly. He seems to be in pain but should be okay to continue.

  • October 25, 2023 00:58

    Just like that Al Duhail has scored another goal to reduce the deficit to one goal. Al Nassr’s backline seemed all the over the place.

    The referee points to the spot as a rushing Nawaf brings down Olunga inside the box. But then the assistant referee raises his flag of offside, which means no penalty for Al Duhail. That is a big escape for Al Nassr. It was a poor challenge from Nawaf.

Talisca shows good skill to create some space on the turn and then takes his shot, aiming for the far-corner. Zakaria manages to get a touch but it was not enough to keep the ball from going inside the net.

  • October 24, 2023 23:54

    Al Duhail in a spot of bother from a Al Nassr corner. The Qatari team could not clear its lines as Mane swings in a curling ball for Alamri at the far-post. But the Alamri could not get a proper contact and Al Duhail escapes.

  • October 24, 2023 23:50

    Ismail’s pass to Coutinho sees the Brazilian with time and space on the right. There was a hint of offsdie but the flag stays down.

Eventually, the flag is shown for offside.

  • October 24, 2023 23:45

  • October 24, 2023 23:40

    Talisca tries to find Ronaldo with a ball over the top. The Al Duhail defence seemed to be split open for a second, but nothing comes of it ultimately as the Talisca’s pass was too heavy.

    Al Nassr does well to play out the ball from the back. Mane makes an inward run from the left and tries to find Ronaldo with the cutback. But Ruben Semedo is there to make the clearance.

  • October 24, 2023 23:37

    Almoez Ali tries to take the ball off Al-Ghanam but ends up conceding a foul with a reckless challenge. That was a painful one for Al-Ghanam and Ali is lucky to escape a booking there.

  • October 24, 2023 23:34
