Updated: Sep 20, 2021
Ittihad Kalba hosted Ajman at Ittihad Kalba stadium in ADNOC Pro League match-week 3 in an evenly-matched game that ended in a 1-1 draw. The first half of the encounter ended goalless, despite the attempts made by both sides, due to the inaccuracy of the final touch. However, it has been a game of two halves as both teams started the second half with a different rhythm. VAR interfered in the 56th minute to rule out a penalty awarded to Ajman, six minutes before the hosts grabbed the lead with a goal scored by their forward Yorleys Mena, who followed up a rebounded shot that hit the post from his teammate Bubacarr Trawally. In the 73rd minute Ahmed Gashak stepped up to equalize the score for Ittihad Kalba with a ground shot he struck from inside the box handing his side the second point of their campaign in three match-weeks. While Ajman earned their fourth point with this draw, and have become sixth in the table.
