Wonders and jokes

Al-Ain succeeded in breaking the knot of Sharjah's victory over him in the last four league matches and reaping three precious points that returned him to stability and calm after a period of a series of negative results, while Sharjah still presented his faint pictures of him and lost five consecutive points in front of Al-Wahda and Al-Ain, to become the chances of retaining the title Very difficult.

Al-Wasl benefited from its victory over Al-Nasr, with a goal from Lima, to climb to seventh with 26 points, surpassing Al-Wehda by one point, while Al-Nasr froze at point 27 and retreated to fifth on goal difference from Al Ain, who rose to fourth place.
