Al Wahda eased to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Dubai last night to help them put Saturday's defeat to Al Shabab behind them. UAE international Ismail Matar put the Abu Dhabi club on the winning path after just four minutes before a brace from Senegalese frontman Papa Waigo either side of the break ensured they took all three points back home to the capital, opening a five-point gap over Dubai in the table in seventh and eight place, respectively.

Al Shaab are locked on 10 points at the bottom of the table with Kalba and Dibba Al Fujairah.
