Al Hilal strengthened its lead in the Saudi League after a 2-0 victory over its guest Al-Taawun, in King Fahd International Stadium, within the thirteenth round competitions.
Before the match, Al Taawun was the league's least beaten team after Al Hilal, having only been defeated in one match, and has been a thorn in the side of all the top clubs this season.
Indeed, Al-Hilal suffered clearly against "Sukkari Al-Qassim" until Aleksandar Mitrovic succeeded in scoring the first goal in the 81st minute, then Mohamed Kanno scored the goal to secure the three points from a direct free kick in the 99th minute.
This victory raised the Blue Wave's tally to 35 points, and thus moves away from Al Nassr by the nearest pursuers by 7 points until the yellow club plays its match in this round against Al Wahda on Sunday.
At the same time, Aleksandar Mitrovic continued to chase the top scorer in the Saudi league, Cristiano Ronaldo, after reaching the 10th goal, while the Portuguese "Don" scored 12 goals.
It is noteworthy that the Serbian striker also entered the history of Al-Hilal after becoming the first foreign striker in 4 or more consecutive matches with Al-Hilal in the Professional League since Nigerian Odion Ighalo season 2022-2023
