Sharjah completed their coronation as 2018/19 Arabian Gulf League champions on Saturday night with a 2-1 victory at Emirates club.

Abdulaziz Al Anbari’s side had sealed the title in the penultimate round, but the win in Ras Al Khaimah meant they concluded the campaign with 17 wins and eight draws from 26 matches.

They tasted defeat only once, arriving in the 23rd round. The league success was Sharjah’s sixth overall, but first in 23 years.

Their victory on Sunday consigned Emirates to relegation. The season comes to a close on Sunday night, with the final four remaining fixtures taking place.
