Saudi Arabia: Al Hilal Take Title Number Twelve

Another great season for the continental powerhouse...
Al Hilal are once again the champions of Saudi Arabia.The Riyadh giants defeated Al Hazm 2-0 to clinch the title for the 12th time.

With just three games remaining this season, Al Hilal are 13 points ahead and uncatchable after Al Shabab in second drew 0-0 with Al Ittifaq.

Issa Al Mehyani got Al Hilal on the way with a goal just before the break and when Nawaf Al Abed grabbed a goal 17 minutes from time, the celebrations really started.

It was the end of a great season for one of Asia’s biggest clubs as Al Hilal led the table from the start and once a sizeable gap was opened, the team never looked back.

Elsewhere, rivals Al Ittihad did their chances of finishing second no harm at all as an early goal from Talal Al Meshal gave them a win over Al Nasr.
