Al Ain's victory over Al Dhafra in the Arabian Gulf League is the main story on The National Sport front page on Thursday, December 1.
In a less than convincing performance, Garden City club needed to come from a goal behind to win 2-1 to clinch the three points.
However, having contested the second leg of the Asian Champions League final just four days ago — when they were defeated 3-2 on aggregate by South Korean club Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors — captain Omar Abdulrahman said “the win is what matters”.
The National's Amith Passela was at the game. Here is his match report.
