Sharjah Smash Al Orooba 5-0 in ADNOC Pro League

Caio Lucas struck twice as Sharjah cruised to a 5-0 home win over Al Orooba in matchweek 21 of the ADNOC Pro League on Saturday.




It didn’t take long for the hosts to find the breakthrough when Bernard sent a fabulous cross into the penalty area from a free-kick, which was met by Alex Gustavo, who planted the ball in with a powerful header from six yards.




Sharjah cemented their lead in the 26th minute when Bernard picked up the ball on the left-wing and smashed it into the back of the net with a powerful left-footed strike from the edge of the penalty area making it 2-0.




Only three minutes before the two teams headed to the dressing rooms for the break, Caio added the third goal for his side when he curled an angled free-kick into the back of the net.




Two minutes later, the Brazilian winger made it a brace when an Al Orooba defender failed to properly clear the ball anf it found Caio who sent a looping header into the back of the net to make it 4-0 at the interval.




In the 75th minute, Salem Saleh sealed the victory and snatched the three points for his side, when he met Marcus Meloni's brilliant cross with a powerful header that nestled into the back of the net.




The result means that Sharjah are now fourth with 42 points, while Al Orooba remain in 13th place with ten points.
