A brace of first-half headers from Carlos Jr saw Al Shabab fight back from a goal down and win 2-1 at Al Tai.

This result sent Al Shabab up to third, while Al Tai stay ninth.
AL WEHDA V AL FATEH
Goals in either half from Firas Al Buraikan and Mourad Batna helped Al Fateh earn a 2-0 triumph at 10-man Al Wehda.
Saudi Arabia striker Al Buraikan fired into the bottom corner on 25 minutes at King Abdulaziz Sports City Stadium, before Batna sealed things with a venomous finish past the 90-minute mark. Costa Rica defender Oscar Duarte had earlier been dismissed for two bookings.
This result pushed Al Fateh up into sixth. Al Wehda stay 12th.
