Their high pressure has been very effective, though there’s still work to do in transition defense. Struggled but came away with a WIN which is what matters.

This game characterised the best the team has played all season in terms of both compactness and creativity with Omar Abdulrahman in the midst of all of it.

What would Al Wasl do without their Brazilian frontline? Too early to say that this could drive them closer to catching up with Al Jazira, but damn, that AFC Champions League spot does look juicy. Their only concern will be Al Ahli who are holding on to their tops.

Let’s add Al Ahli to the “ugly but effective” outfit. They held Dibba without a good chance on goal while making the most of their own best look, and have now redeemed themselves. Have they though?

Similar to their opponents this past weekend, they currently have four draws and one loss. And just like their opponents this past weekend, the loss came against Al Jazira. The only difference, the draws were against some of the top teams in the league. Lot of potential here.

That loss against Al Jazira seriously shook them. They are finding it hard to cope without their talented foreign contingency. Lacks desire to fight through unfortunately.

Losing to Al Jazira despite missing Ciel and Bakery Kone goes down as a positive, but that was a heroic performance from Kalbawis.

Home games are rarely the tonic a struggling team needs, but this is not the case for Dibba who ended their good two game run. The next few games will talk to their ability to hold on strongly.

Their third loss in five games. Credit to them for keeping the scoreline understandable, but where’s the offense?

Four draws and one loss – the loss coming against a top team – Al Jazira. Jose Peseiro is finding it difficult to open up the can of whooping their offence can initiate. Just a single goal in past five games.

That is how you bust an epic slump. Emirates have found something in Mourad Batna. A little too late we believe.

Too early to say that was a season-saving win, because the season hasn’t been saved yet.

Frustrating. Earlier in the season, we claimed that this squad could potentially win the title. Sorry.
