Al-Khaleej FC faced a disappointing defeat at home against Al-Wehda FC, with Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo emerging as the standout performer of the match, frustrating Mohamed Sherif and his Al-Khaleej teammates.

Despite entering the fixture in eleventh place on the league table, Al-Khaleej FC found themselves on the wrong end of a 1-2 scoreline against Al-Wehda FC, who occupied twelfth place prior to kickoff.

With just one point now separating the two sides, the clash proved to be a crucial fixture in the battle for league positioning.

Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo, renowned for his attacking prowess, showcased his class once again, delivering a masterful performance with a brace that ultimately proved decisive in securing victory for Al-Wehda FC.

Ighalo found the back of the net in the 27th minute and later converted a penalty in the 82nd minute, bringing his tally to an impressive 14 goals in 29 league appearances this season.

Despite the setback, Al-Khaleej FC found a glimmer of hope when Egyptian striker Mohamed Sherif netted an equalizer in the 66th minute, marking his fifth goal of the season.

Sherif’s goal provided a brief respite for the home side, but ultimately failed to prevent Al-Wehda FC from claiming all three points.

Looking ahead, Al-Wehda FC will aim to maintain their momentum when they host Al-Raed in their next fixture on Thursday, May 16.

Meanwhile, Al-Khaleej FC will seek to bounce back from the defeat as they prepare to host Al-Ittihad on the same day, with both teams eager to secure vital points in the Saudi Pro League standings.
