Al-Ahly returned to the path of victories in the Yellow League for first-class clubs in Saudi Arabia, after its valuable victory over its host Al-Sahel, 3/1, in the match that took place between them today, Monday, for the 29th round.
Al-Ahly ended the first half, leading with a clean goal, through its player, Haitham Asiri, in the 43rd minute.
The owners of the land waited a quarter of an hour after the start of the second half to equalize through Hisham Hussein Al Debees in the 60th minute, but Al-Ahly did not wait long as Riyad Boudebouz scored the second goal from a penalty kick in the 70th minute, before his colleague Hisham Fayek settled the match points with a third goal in 78th minute.
With that result, Al-Ahly strengthened its lead in the Yellow League, with 62 points from 29 matches, six points ahead of Al-Okhdood, who played two games less, and widened the gap with Al-Faisaly, who finished in fifth place, to 18 points, as Al-Faisaly has 44 points from 27 matches.
And Al-Ahly is on the verge of officially advancing to the Roshen Professional League, as Al-Faisaly will play two matches against Uhud on April 26 for the 29th round, before going out to meet Al-Hazm for the 30th round on the first of May.
And in the event that Al-Faisaly loses one of the two matches, Al-Ahly will officially decide the promotion to the Roshan League, but in the event that Al-Faisaly wins in two matches, the difference with Al-Ahly will be reduced to 12 points, and in this case Al-Ahly will need to win outside its stadium against Hajar on the third of May to officially settle the promotion before 4 rounds of end of the season.
