Goals from Salmin Khamis and Everton Ribeiro gave Al Ahli a crucial 2-1 victory over top of the table Al Jazira at Rashid Stadium.

The game came to life in the second half as Ali Mabkhout seemed to have missed a golden opportunity to put Al Jazira ahead when he saw his penalty saved by Majed Naser in the 68th minute. However, the team's top goalscorer reacted first to the rebound and slammed it into the net.

Al Ahli looked to respond and just seven minutes later they were level as a Khamis Ismaeel free-kick crashed off the crossbar but was then headed in by Salmin Khamis to bring the hosts level.

A scuffed effort from Asamoah Gyan fell kindly into the path of Ribeiro who finished from close-range, registering an important 2-1 victory to keep their title hopes alive.
