Al-Nassr have consolidated their position at the top of the Saudi Women’s Premier League after beating Al-Ahli 4-0 at the reserve stadium of King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah on Friday night.
The match came in the scheduled fourth round of the new competition, although it was only the third outing for the teams as last weekend’s Matchday 3 had been postponed due to the Saudi Games.
Al-Nassr led 2-0 at halftime thanks to goals by Mubarak Al-Saiari and Marina Panchko, and doubled the scoreline after the break with strikes from Yasmine Tabila and Hessa Al-Eissa.
After drawing 3-3 against Al-Shabab in their previous fixture, Al-Nassr now lead the table with seven points from three matches.
Al-Ahli, meanwhile, are in fifth place of the eight-team table, with only three points after a second loss.
The two teams will continue their league campaign on Nov. 18 when Al-Nassr will visit Eastern Flames in Dammam, while Al-Ahli will meet Al-Shabab in Jeddah.
The fourth-round matches will conclude with two matches on Saturday, with Sama taking on Al-Yamamah and Al-Hilal wafting Eastern Flames.
