AGL Picks of the Week: Sharjah stunned by Ahmed Abunamous, Mahdi Ali suffers uncertain start
Fresh life was breathed into the 2020/21 Arabian Gulf League title race in an enthralling match-week 10. Drama at the top began when Bani Yas substitute Ahmed Abunamous danced through the Sharjah defence on Thursday to inflict their first defeat of the season. Al Jazira then moved level courtesy of a lively 3-2 win at an Al Wasl inspired by coach Odair Hellmann’s arrival from Fluminense, while third-placed Al Nasr’s limp 2-1 defeat to the 10 men of Al Ain on Friday kept them off the pace. Mahdi Ali, meanwhile, endured a nightmare return to Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Club, going down 3-2 at lowly Fujairah. Al Wahda’s winless run extended to four matches with a dreary goalless draw at sixth-placed Ittihad Kalba, Ramon Lopes’ double earned a 2-1 triumph for improving Khor Fakkan at sinking Ajman and bottom-placed Hatta remained stuck on one point after Denilson got the only goal for mid-table Al Dhafra. Here are Sport360°’s top picks and a talking point: PLAYER OF THE WEEK Ramon Lopes (Khor Fakkan) استمتع مع رامون لوبيز بالهدفين في مرمى عجمان
