After Al Fateh SC’s win over SSDFT Team White and Al Taawoun SC’s win over Al Qadisiyah SC last Sunday, it’s time for the second round of matches in the Saudi Arabian group.
SSDFT Team White lost 3-0 to Al Fateh SC in a match that went off the rails in its final minutes. After Fouad’s goal for the home side at the 22nd minute, the crowd at the Prince Abdullah bin Jalawi Stadium witnessed a thrilling encounter, with chances for both sides, but no goals until the 86th minute when Ali Al Jassim dribbled past Abdulaziz Fallatah. In added time, Ali Masoud made it 3-0, a severe punishment for the young Saudis, who deserved more.
The scholarship program team will next take on Al Qadisiyah, in a match in which both teams will be looking for a win to keep their hopes of qualifying for the quarter-finals on the last matchday of the group.
