Shabab Al Ahli pulled off a 2-1 win over Al Wahda in matchweek three of the ADNOC Pro League at Rashid Stadium on Friday.
The Dubai-based side needed just 15 minutes to open the scoring when Omar Khribin met Igor Jesus' cross with a sensational first-time volley that flew into the bottom corner of the net.
Ismaeil Matar teed up Tahnoon Alzaabi on the left wing with a brilliant back-heel pass as the latter swung in a low cross into the six-yard box, where Abdulla Hamad met it with a clinical finish to restore parity for Al Wahda.
Six minutes after the break, Igor Jesus Da Cruz put Shabab Al Ahli ahead again when he met Bader Nasser's cross with a superb diving header into the bottom corner.
The result means that Shabab Al Ahli sit fifth with six points, while Al Wahda are in the tenth spot with just one point.
