The events of the Al-itthad and Al-ettifaq match that brought the two teams together in the 14th round of the Roshn Professional League, Abdullah Al Dabeel Stadium, which ended in a positive draw for the two teams.

The  itthad Jeddah team fell into the tie trap in the first appearance of the team led by Argentine Jayardo, after a two-week international hiatus.

The Al-ettifaq was recorded by Wijnaldum in the 41st minute of the meeting, while Hamdelle was tied in the 51st minute, and only 10 minutes later.

Hamdallah demanded in the 56th minute a penalty after falling inside the al-ettifaq penalty area but no decision was counted. The Al-ettifaq led a dangerous attack in the 60th minute that eventually reached his player Gray in front of the Al-itthad penalty area to strike on goal.

The draw is the fourth for the federal team during their title defence trip, the first under Argentina’s Marcelo Jayardo, who assumed the job of coaching the “Tigers”, succeeding Portuguese Nuno Santo, who was dismissed from his post because of declining results.

The tie for yellow comes before leaving for Uzbekistan to face Ajmak on Monday in a match aimed at securing their third group lead and snatching qualification points to the last 16 of the Asian Champions League.

With this result, the Al-itthad did not move in the table of the Saudi Professional roshn League ranking, only raising its balance to 25 points in fifth place, as well as the Al-ettifaq raising its balance to 23 points in ninth place.

The al-itthad faces al-khaleej counterpart in the 15th round of the league’s competition, while the Al-ettifaq faces Al-akhdood counterpart.
