    What a game, what a result for Al Khaleej! They stopped the second-placed Al Nassr 1-1 to deny them the opportunity to climb on the top of points table. Goals in the first half for both teams were decisive in the result.

    Chance: Another delivery for Maran inside the box, another header and another save by keeper Haidari.

  • May 08, 2023 23:26

  • May 08, 2023 23:11

    Chance: Ufff! Close, Ronaldo! He cuts in and shows creativity which was lacking for quite some time now. He cuts in once and then goes deep to deceive two defenders and hits a shot beneath the defender’s leg but it goes wide by few inches! Nearly a winner from Ronaldo.

    A heated exchange of words between Alvaro Gonzalez and Cikalleshi over a foul.

  • May 08, 2023 23:04

  • May 08, 2023 23:00

    Al Nassr manages to win a free kick near the box. Ronaldo takes the kick and once again hits the defensive wall as he goes for power instead of

  • May 08, 2023 22:55

    Corner Kick: Al Khaleej wins a corner but Rossi saves the kick without any fuss.

  • May 08, 2023 22:53

  • May 08, 2023 22:50

    Off Side: Oh my god, a chaotic play as Nassr drills it by not one, not two but at least four shots back-to-back. Ronaldo in the end finds the back of the net but till then the flag was up signalling offside.

  • May 08, 2023 22:47

    Talisca gets the ball from Ghareeb and straightaway gets collides with Odwah. Odwah is looking in pain but it was a legitimate run thus play continues.

  • May 08, 2023 22:45

    Ronaldo receives the through ball in the midfield but he has been brought down by Souza this time, referee says play-on yet again and the frustration grows larger on captgain Ronaldo.

    Khaleej gets the possession for the first time in this half, Feitosa runs down the left channel and tries to make a move but he has been brought down and the referee allows to play on.

  • May 08, 2023 22:38

    Nassr conintues to hold the possession. Khaleej has deployed numbers on its half. A breakthrough is difficult to find by any team here.

  • May 08, 2023 22:36

    Nassr wastes no time and straghtaway goes for an attack.

  • May 08, 2023 22:35
    Welcome back

    Time for some live action from the second half.

  • May 08, 2023 22:19

    WUFF! What a first half we just witnessed. Al Khaleej opened its account in the fourth minute with Martins goal and then Al Nassr retaliated by constant high press. Gonzalez equalised for the home team at 17th minute and they had at lease five more chances to double or even triple its lead. Alas, one-one as it stands at half time.

  • May 08, 2023 22:17

    Three minutes of added time has been added.

  • May 08, 2023 22:17

    Chance: What a lovely run-up play by Khaleej to catch the Nassr’s defense off guard, a cross of flank four times resulted in an opportunity for Khaleej to take shot from dangerous angle but Rossi does well enough to save it with a timely jump.

    Yellow card: Ali Alhassan fouls Fabio Martins from behind to bring him down and referee says enough is enough and booked Alhassan with a yellow card.

  • May 08, 2023 22:09

    Chance: Ghareeb times his run with near perfection to beat the last line of defence while staying on side and his first touch almost got Nassr the second goal but Haidari is standing like a wall for Khaleej in front of box today.

  • May 08, 2023 22:07

    Chance: Another corner kick for Al Nassr, Ghareeb on set piece duty. Sulaiheem who was placed wide receives the ball and hits a shot but could not keep it on target.

  • May 08, 2023 22:04

    Al Nassr was pressing hard for the last few minutes, they have laid back now as we move closer to the halftime. Nassr dominates the ball possession and dictates the pace of the game.

  • May 08, 2023 21:53

    Chance: Nassr back in action after some celebration of that eqaualiser. Ghareeb makes a solo run from the right flank, he is all alone there and cuts in defeating three defenders but eventually gives the possession back to Khaleej. Gustavo gets the ball close to the box and takes a shot which was saved by the keeper and he gets back on his feet to save another shot, two lovely save by Haidari.
