Al Ain cruise to 2-0 win over struggling Ajman

Al Ain bounced back from their defeat to Bani Yas to beat struggling Ajman 2-0 at Rashid bin Saeed Stadium in matchweek 22 of the Arabian Gulf League on Sunday.


Al Ain looked more dangerous in the early phases of the first half, as Yahia Nader came close to breaking the deadlock only seven minutes in, but his effort hit the bar.


The guests' pressure eventually paid off as they opened the scoring on the 15-minute mark when Mohamed Abbas capitalized on a defensive error to tap the ball home and hand the away side a 1-0 lead.


Ajman keeper Ali Mohamed denied Laba Kodjo from netting the second goal off a stunning effort in the 20th minute. 


The Boss waited until the 86th minute to seal the win when Laba Kodjo fired a powerful effort from outside the box to put Al Ain 2-0 up.


Al Ain returned to winning ways and earned their 10th victory of the league season. They now have 37 and sit in sixth place, two points below Al Nasr. Meanwhile, Ajman's misery was compounded as they dropped to 13th place with 11 points following Fujairah's win over Al Nasr on Sunday.
