Al-Ain suffers shock loss

22 February 2013-PA Sport

Al-Ain's lead atop the UAE League ladder has been cut to six points after it suffered a shock defeat at home to lowly Dibba Al Fujairah.

Luiz Fernando's goal after 33 minutes gave the visitor its third win of the season, keeping it off the foot of the table on goal difference despite a victory for basement dweller Al-Ittihad Kalba.

Al-Jazira made the most of Al-Ain's defeat with a 4-1 rout of Al-Dhafra.

Fernandinho opened the scoring in the 33rd minute, and Ricardo Oliveira added a second just before the hour mark.

Ali Mabkhout finished off the visitor with a late brace, his goals either side of a consolation strike from Makethe Diop.

Al-Ittihad Kalba enjoyed its third win of the season as Mohammed Malullah's 86th-minute strike saw off Al-Nasr 2-1.

Ji Parana put Al-Ittihad Kalba in front two minutes before half-time, but Mullalah's late goal was needed after Giuseppe Mascara had levelled seven minutes into the second half.

Goals in either half from Jociel Ciel and Edgar da Silva gave Al-Shabab a 2-0 home win over Al-Ahly Dubai.
