Al-Hilal extends winning streak to 24, overpowering Al-Ettifaq

Al Hilal Extends Lead: Defeats Al Ettifaq 2-0 in Saudi Pro League Clash

In a commanding performance, Al Hilal showcased their league dominance against Steven Gerrard’s Al Ettifaq. The first half saw Al Hilal’s superiority, culminating in goals by Milinkovic-Savic and Salem al Dawsari, securing a decisive 2-0 victory.

Al Hilal asserted control in the opening half, excelling in possession and chances. Milinkovic-Savic broke the deadlock in the 39th minute, followed by Al Dawsari’s goal in added time. Although Al Ettifaq rallied briefly in the added minutes of the first half, they struggled to connect in the match.

While Al Ettifaq pressed in the early second half, exploiting Al Hilal’s momentary lapse, the leaders remained composed. Gray posed a threat for Al Ettifaq, but the match gradually tilted in favor of one side. The score remained unchanged, and Mitrovic’s yellow card means he will miss the next match due to accumulated bookings.

Al Hilal’s triumph, achieved without star Neymar Jr, reaffirms their seven-point lead over Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr. Meanwhile, Al Ettifaq maintains their eighth position with 28 points. The league leader’s impressive form continues, emphasizing their prowess even in the absence of key players like Neymar Jr.
