There was no doubting the highlight of the evening for Al Hilal fans.
On Sunday evening the Saudi champions defeated Al Shabab of Oman 1-0 in the 2018–19 Arab Club Champions Cup, Mohammed Al Breik’s solitary goal settling the first leg of the round of 32 tie in Riyadh.

But it was Omar Abdulrahman’s introduction at half-time that raised the roof at King Saud University Stadium. The UAE golden boy last week completed a loan move from Al Ain to the club where he had spent his formative years (2000-2005), and the fans gave “Amoory” a welcome 13 years in the making.

Al Hilal’s next fixture is the 2018 Saudi Super Cup against King’s Cup winners Al Ittihad FC at Loftus Road in London on Saturday.
