Abderrazak Hamdallah is back on the goal trail after his double secured Al-Ittihad a 2-0 win over Al-Khaleej at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah.
Last season’s runners-up now sit second in the Roshn Saudi league table with 10 points from four matches.
The Moroccan forward was playing only his second match after a long suspension and managed goals in the fourth and 69th minutes, while Al-Khaleej completed the match with 10 players after Hazem Al-Zahrani received a straight red card in the 73rd minute.
The defeat leaves Al-Khaleej in 14th place with one point.
Al-Ittihad next outing will be against third-place Al-Nassr on Oct. 2, while Al-Khaleej will host Al-Batin on the same day.
