Al-Bataeh won an important victory over its host Kalba yesterday, 2-0, in the first round of the ADNOC Pro League. He celebrated winning his first match with the “Professionals” after his rise last season.
Kalba appeared the most possessive, but Al-Bataeh opened the scoring through Brazilian Lawrence, who received a long ball from goalkeeper Zayed Ahmed to set himself free and hit the net in the seventh minute. Al-Bataeh was able to register again, taking advantage of some loopholes in Kalba’s ranks. Al-Bataeh got a penalty kick (90 + 2), which was missed by the Portuguese Pedro, after goalkeeper Issa Ahmed saved it. The same player returned, and scored the second goal (90 + 9).
