Al Nassr topped Al Hilal in the race and won the Saudi title. Al Taawon of Pedro Emanuel finishes in third place.
Al Nassr won the Saudi championship on Thursday after beating Al Batin (2-1) on the 30th and final round of the championship. Rui Vitoria’s team were under pressure to win against rival Al Hilal and were able to defeat their second-to-last with Hamdallah’s (26 ‘and 57’) goals.
For their part, Al Hilal, which was guided by Jorge Jesus until half the season, finished second to a point in Al Nassr by Rui Vitória.
Note also for the third place of Al Taawon by Pedro Emanuel. After winning the King’s Cup, the Portuguese coach still managed to raise an important place on the podium of the championship.
Also, remember that Rui Vitoria can be again champion … on Saturday. The Portuguese coach guided Benfica in the first half of the season and will also be champion if the Eagles finish first in the I Liga.
