Dubai’s Al Nasr Club are leading the goal-scoring chart with 15 goals scored, followed by top-of-the-standings Al Ain who scored 14 goals, of which nine have been netted by their Togolese striker, Kodjo Laba.


Interestingly, a total of 29 goals have been scored by teams between the 76th and 90th minute of games.


The second most-preferred period for scoring goals was between the 61st and 75th minutes, and it was this period that has witnessed a total of 23 goals.


Some of the teams have been quick in finding the back of the net during the first 15 minutes following kick off piling up a total of 15 goals, equally balanced off with another 15 goals scored between the 31st to the 45th minutes.


The minutes between the 46th and the 60th have seen a total of 12 goals, followed by the period between the 16th and 30th minutes, that witnessed a total of 11 goals.


Teams of the competition tended to score more in the second half of the encounters as a total of 64 goals have been netted in the second period, whereas 41 goals were scored in the first half.
