Al Hilal continued their dominance of the Saudi Pro League with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Al Nassr who lost their first game since August.

Mitrovic scored an incredible second half brace after Sergej Milinkovic Savic had opened the scoring to help Al Hilal open a seven point lead at the top after just fifteen rounds of football.

Luis Castor’s men left in disgust while Jorge Jesus left the stadium full of elation as they got their revenge for the final loss to their rivals.

The record champions are now better placed at the top of the table with the halfway mark approaching.

Meanwhile…

Despite getting on a brace, Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru could not save his club from defeat at the hands of visiting Damac.

The 26 year old’s brace was not enough to salvage anything from the game as Cameroonian winger Georges Kevin N’Koudou also scored twice to give his side all three points.

Onyekuru twice halved the deficit but Assan Ceesay’s 96th minute goal put the game to bed.

Damac have now overtaken Al Feiha on the log as they moved to 8th with 21 points while the Vuk Rasovic led side dropped to 9th with 19 points.
