Al Dhafra Boost Survival Hopes with 2-1 Win over Al Nasr

Guilherme Vieira grabbed a brace as Al Dhafra came from a goal down to edge out Al Nasr 2-1 on Saturday and keep their hopes of avoiding relegation alive.





The hosts needed just 26 minutes to take the lead when Sebastian Tagliabue put Toze through on goal and the Portuguese playmaker kept his composure to pass the ball into the back of the net with a smart finish.





Eight minutes later, Al Dhafra restored parity when Lucas Candido Silva teed Guilherme Augusto Vieira up on the left flank and the Brazilian forward embarked on a jinking run before cutting inside and curling a right-footed effort into the bottom right corner.





Five minutes before the two teams headed to the dressing rooms for the break, Vieira added his second and put his side ahead when he controlled a deflected ball inside the six-yard-box and sent it into the back of the net with a clinical half-volleyed finish to secure the three points for the visitors.



The result means Al Dhafra sit 12th with 21 points, while Al Nasr are eighth with 32 points.
