Arabian Gulf Cup Quarter-finals: Fight breaks out after Bur Dubai Derby

Al Wasl narrowly defeated Al Nasr 1-0 in the Bur Dubai Derby, while Al Wahda thrashed rivals Al Ain 5-1 to qualify.

A lone Caio goal was all that was needed for Al Wasl to win 3-2 on aggregate after a draw with rivals Al Nasr in the first leg, 2-2. The game came in the absence of Fabio Lima, who was sent off in the home leg.

However, the biggest talking point of the match came when Khaled Jalal of Al Nasr attempted to attack Ronaldo Mendes of Al Wasl at the end of the match, with officials and coaches preventing a scuffle from breaking out.

The first leg also saw a fight break out, but in the stands, when fans from both sides attempted to attack each other after it was alleged that a bottle was thrown at one of the fans sitting in the VVIP section. 

The rest of the results

Al Wahda thrashed Al Ain 5-1 after beating them 2-1 in the first leg with only 9 men, qualifying for the semi-finals in dominant fashion with goals from Mourad Batna, Tareq Ahmed, Sebastian Tagliabue, Mohammed Alshehhi and Mohammed Alakberi.

Shabab Al Ahli eased past Hatta with a 2-1 scoreline, as Makhete Diop and Ante Erceg’s goals cancelled out Ahmed Khameis’ consolation for Hatta. The first leg ended with a 3-1 win for Shabab Al Ahli.

A giant killing occurred when Dibba defeated Al Jazira 1-0 and added to their 3-1 score of the first leg, qualifying to the semi-finals of the cup for the first time in their history at the expense of the league’s defending champions.
