Al-Ittihad restores balance with three Gulf

The first Al-Ittihad football team returned to the track of victories after its great victory over Al-Khaleej, its host, 3-0, during the match that took place on Friday, at Prince Muhammad bin Fahd Stadium in Dammam, in the 19th round of the Saudi Roshan League.
Through this victory, the Al-Ittihadi team prepared perfectly for the expected Clasico match against Al-Nasr next Thursday at the summit of the twentieth round confrontations, and it also compensated for its stumbling after its negative draw with Al-Raed in the last round, raising its score to 44 points in the lead temporarily, pending the outcome of the Al-Nasr confrontation. «43 points» in front of the subcontracting that will take place later.
A negative tie dominated the course of the first half, but the situation changed completely in the second half, as the Al-Ittihad team succeeded in advancing with the goal of the lead through Moroccan Abdel-Razzaq Hamdallah from a penalty kick in the 54th minute.
Moroccan Hamdallah, who returned to participation after recovering from injury, raised his score to 12 goals, one behind Brazilian striker Talisca, Al-Nasr striker, and the top scorer.
Al-Ittihad striker Haroun Kamara almost increased his team’s lead with a second goal, but the referee canceled it on the grounds of offside after returning to the video assistant referee “VAR” technique in the “61st” minute.
Al-Ittihad hit hard, scoring two quick goals within 5 minutes, the first with a shot from Brazilian Romarinho after he penetrated into the penalty area, taking advantage of an elaborate pass from his compatriot Cornado (69), and the second with a header from Ahmed Sharahili from a corner kick (74).
Thus, the Al-Ittihad team managed to win 3-0 for the fifth time during its career in the current version of the league, after defeating Al-Adalah, Al-Taawon, Al-Fayhaa and Al-Ettifaq in rounds 1, 10, 14 and 17 with the same result.
On the other hand, Al-Khaleej suffered its second consecutive loss, to freeze its balance at 16 points in the 14th place.
