Al-Bataeh suffered a sudden loss against the Dibba team, with a score (1/0), during the match that brought the two teams together on Tuesday at Khalid bin Mohammed Stadium in Sharjah, for the 23rd round of the ADNOC Professional League.
With this result, Al-Bataeh’s balance remained at 18 points in the 12th place, while Dibba Al-Fujairah raised its balance to 15 points in the thirteenth place.
Al-Bataeh did not present the level expected of him in the first half of the game, in which the team retreated unjustifiably, contenting himself with defense, in light of the continuous attack of the guests.
Dibba translated his dominance in the first half by scoring the only goal in the match through Khaled Al Balushi in the 24th minute, to end the first half with Dibba advancing.
Al-Bataeh threw his weight in the second half and launched a fierce attack on Dibba’s goal in order to adjust the score and avoid losing, and the team wasted a number of opportunities, most notably the chance of Cameroonian striker Anatole, who faced Dibba’s goalkeeper, but luck resisted him and the ball did not enter the net.
Al-Bataeh continued his attacking reach at Dibba’s goal, but he was unable to reach the goal, so the match ended with Dibba winning with a single goal.
