Al Wasl’s 2021-22 ADNOC Pro League season was a disappointing one for their faithful, but one that was largely shaped by injuries to key players including their top scorer Fábio Lima.
The Dubai-based side ended the campaign in sixth place with 36 points from 26 games, having won nine games, lost eight and drew in the other eight, scoring 36 goals and conceding 30.
Odair Hellmann's men kicked off their campaign in the ADNOC Pro League with a 1-0 away win over Bani Yas and concluded the season with a 2-1 victory over the 2020-21 champions Al Jazira at Zabeel Stadium.
Starting from matchweek 2, Al Wasl went on a four-match winless run, before returning to winning ways with a 1-0 home win over Shabab Al Ahli in matchweek 6.
By the end of the first half of the season, their record read four wins, four losses and five draws.
Their situation improved ever so slightly in the second half, winning five games, losing four, and picking-up five draws to sit sixth at the end.
Al Wasl pulled off their biggest win in matchweek 12 after demolishing Al Orooba 5-0, while their biggest defeat was in matchweek 24 against Ajman 2-4.
