Al Nasr held a 60-40 advantage in possession and recorded 24 shots on goal, but eight were on target, leaving the Al Oval with a bitter taste in their mouths. Al Nasr had just five shots on target, while Al Thawon had a whopping six on goal. Al Nasr fell behind to Leandre Tawamba in the 20th minute before Ahmed Bahushan struck in the sixth minute of second-half stoppage time.
Ronaldo had scored six goals in the six matches of the Arab Club Champions League that preceded the start of the league to help his team to victory, but he was silent in the league and watched his team lose in disgrace. After going scoreless in four Arab Club Champions League games, Mane redeemed himself by scoring in the league opener.
