Fanja miss out on top place in OPL round of upsets
Sun,06-Mar-16

Orouba kept it’s hold on the top spot despite losing as the 21st Round of the Omantel Professional League saw many shock results.

Muscat visited Sur and came back with a point after a goalless draw. Muscat has been pushing up the table towards safety as the point sees them finish in 11th place while Sur finish in 13th at the end of the round.

Sohar played Nasr in another goalless draw at the Sohar stadium. The two teams are neck and neck still, Sohar in 6th with 29 points while Nasr is in 5th with 30 points.

A Mohammed Siyabi goal saw league leaders Orouba lose to Al Nahda by a score of 1-0.  Nahda are now in 8th place while Orouba have somehow managed to hold onto pole position.

Saham put up a strong performance as they visited Musannah at the Seeb stadium, beating them 3-1 courtesy goals from alexander, Khalid Al Bureiki and Mohsin Johar. Khalid Al Hajiry scored Musannah’s only goal but it wasn’t enough to prevent their 3rd loss in a row.

Dhofar hosted Suwaiq at the Salalah stadium with the visitors having the chance to go top after Orouba had lost the previous day. The game ended a disappointing goalless draw for both sides as Dhofar were hoping to jump back into contention for the title and Suwaiq were hoping they could finish the round top of the league.

Shabab brought out the drama at the Seeb stadium as Khabourah thought they had an away victory in the bag before Azwar Al Hasani grabbed an injury time equaliser to cancel out Ashad Obaid’s goal. The result sees Shabab in 10th place with 22 points and Khabourah in 12th place with 20 points.

The biggest opportunity to go top though was Fanja’s to take. Suwaiq and Orouba had both played before them and dropped points and they were to visit bottom placed Salalah. It is difficult to say whether Fanja squandered it or Salalah played their best ever game but the bottom team upset the title contenders and Fanja stayed at second place.

It really is a league where anything can happen and with the fewer games remaining and only 1 point between the top 3, the Omantel Professional League is far from decided.
