Al Dhafra team returned from Ajman with a precious 3-1 victory, yesterday, in the seventh round of the ADNOC Professional League, to score the second victory for the "Forsan Al Gharbia", and the first led by its Brazilian coach Ruggiero, bringing Al Dhafra's balance to seven points in the 10th place, while Ajman's balance froze at 11 points, and slipped to sixth place.

Senegalese Makita Diop succeeded in winning the title of historical top scorer for foreign players in the UAE Pro League, thanks to his two goals against Ajman, after raising his score to 103 goals, which led him to surpass the former Ghanaian Al-Ain player Asamoah Gyan, who scored 101 goals, in achieving New player history.

In the details of the match, Al Dhafra imposed itself as the best party in the match, and succeeded in overturning its delay with a goal to win with three, as Ajman was the first to score, when he received a penalty kick, after Al Dhafra player Khaled Ali cleared the player Walid Al Yamahi, who was facing the goal, and scored. For orange Aboubacar Traoré in the third minute.

Al Dhafra almost modified the result, but the Brazilian Leonardo's ball, which he shot from a direct free kick in front of the penalty arc, bounced off the crossbar (9).

Despite the strength of the Ajman defense line, which is considered the best defense line in the season, Al Dhafra managed to score the equalizer through Moroccan Essam Al Adwa, who hit a header that shook the net in the 17th minute, and arrived from a corner kick by Khaled Butti, and Al Dhafra returned and scored a goal. The second advance came through Makita Diop, who received a ball and connected it from a throw-in, succeeded in extracting it for himself, and shot it into the goal in the 37th minute. Ismail hit the net in the 42nd minute.

Al Dhafra continued to excel in the second half, and could have scored early had it not been for Khaled Butti's shot hit the post in the 56th minute.

The cohesion of the Al Dhafra defense and its control contributed to limiting the danger of the midfield and depriving Tunisian Firas Belarabi of trying to score on more than one occasion, and then the two teams tried to knock on the goal again, especially Ajman, but none of his attempts reached the happy ending, so that Al Dhafra could achieve an exciting victory.
