Cinematographer: Najeeb Mohamed
The Abu Dhabi Clasico match between Al Ain and Al Wahda yesterday in the 19th round of the ADNOC Professional League fulfilled its promises as usual, as Al Nahyan Stadium was filled with full capacity. The fans of the hosts raised a large banner entitled «Loyal Annabi», in return raised the fans of the guests «Tifo» glorifying the history of the team.Many fans arrived to their seats in the stadium stands early to avoid the large congestion witnessed in the vicinity of the stadium and neighboring areas, as hundreds of fans were forced to park their cars on the sidewalk and in the areas designated for residents, in order to catch the whistle for the start of the strong confrontation, and some fans returned to their drawers because they did not succeed in entering because of the lack of entry tickets.
The entrance to the stadium was smooth due to the heavy deployment of organizers in order to direct the fans towards the gates designated for them, and the fans of the two teams did not stop launching their own songs in order to spread the spirit of enthusiasm in the hearts of the players, and it was remarkable that the fans did not stop cheering until the final whistle.
