Al-Hilal owes its victory to the goals of Peruvian Andre Carrillo (23), Frenchman Pavitimbi Gomez (25), Argentine Luciano Vito (41), and Salem Al-Dossari (72 and 85), while Al-Fateh’s goals were scored by Ammar Al-Dahim (66) and Peruvian Christian Cueva (81 from a kick penalty).
With this victory, Al-Hilal raised its score to 39 points, and narrowed the difference with the leaders, who face Damak on Monday evening, to two points, while Al-Fateh remained on its previous tally of 25 points in the thirteenth place.
Gomez said after the match, “It is an important victory today after losing in the derby against Al-Nassr. Today the result was a reflection of our performance unlike the last match. We hope to follow this path in the next matches.”
In another match, Al-Ittihad benefited from the stumbling of its neighbor Al-Ahly in front of Al-Faisaly in the best way, to snatch the third place after it achieved a big victory over its host Al-Qadisiyah 4-1 at Prince Muhammad Bin Fahd Stadium.
Al-Qadisiyah, who suffered its first loss after ten matches, advanced through Malagasy Carlos Andrea (31) and Al-Ittihad responded with four, including a hat trick by Alexander Bryovic (43, 69 and 82) and Ziyad the journalist (65).
Al-Ittihad raised its balance to 35 points in third place, while Al-Qadisiyah remained 29 points in its previous balance in eighth place.
Bryovic said after the match that “the hat-trick came with the help of my fellow players, especially at the level of crosses. As a striker, he needed that. We dedicate this victory to the Al-Ittihad fans. We miss them a lot, and they deserve the joy.”
On the other hand, Al-Nasr returned to the series Bleeding Points after tying with its guest Abha with two goals for the same.
Abha led twice through his Swedish striker Carlos Strandbera (11 and 74), and Al-Nassr equalized through substitute Sami Al-Naji (61, 90 + 3).
Al-Nasr raised his score to 29 points in seventh place, while Abha raised his score to 25 points in twelfth place.
Al-Raed’s team scored an important victory over its guest Al-Ain by 4-0, as Abdullah Al-Muqrin scored a hat-trick in the minutes (17, 53 and 62), leaving Chilean’s fourth goal, Rooney Fernandez (82 from a penalty kick).
Al-Raed raised his score to 25 points in twelfth place, while Al Ain is in last place with 15 points.
