The fourth season of the Abu Dhabi Football League recently reached the halfway point of the group stage and as it hit this milestone, goals rained in from all angles. The league, which is sanctioned by the UAE Football Association and supported by Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, Wilson and Sport 360, recorded its 500th goal of the season to cap off a thrilling opening nine weeks of football! Organised by MMC Sportz and Zayed Sports City, the ADFL is comprised of 20 teams in two groups, battling for a share of the AED 80,000 prize pool!
It is a tight race in Group 1 where only four points separate the top four teams. Emirates ID remain unbeaten at the top of the group but find themselves being matched pace for pace by University Sports Federation, who ended Week 9 only one point off the top. The group is still wide open and competition for the playoff places are as fearsome as ever. Yahya Mourad is powering D.Feras' bid to reach the playoff stage with an impressive 17 goals to his name already.
In Group 2, the Falcons Academy are soaring high at the top of the table after a nine match unbeaten streak! Their attacking style of play has seen them find the back of the net 45 times already this season and helped them to record an impressive record. Zayed Sports City remain one win away from top spot as they look to keep their run of form as we enter the second half of the group stage.
Matches are scheduled on Mondays and Tuesday from 9.00 p.m onwards. All results, fixtures and breaking news can be found on adfl.ae.
