Ahmed Musa Wins First Saudi Pro League Title With Al Nassr

Super Eagles of Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa has won the 2018-19 Saudi Professional League title, his first with Al Nassr since joining in August 2018.

It took Abderrazak Hamdallah’s brace to steer Rui Vitoria’s men to a 2-1 win over Al Batin on Thursday to maintain their spot at the summit with a point lead over second-placed Al Hilal.

The brace stretched the Moroccan’s tally to 34 goals after 26 games to finish as top scorer in the Saudi top-flight.

Musa, who was in action with fellow last summer signing Nordin Amrabat, could not add to his tally of seven goals and Amrabat to his five league goals.

Al Nassr will be looking to build on the win when they host Iranian side Zob Ahan on May 21 for their final AFC Champions League group fixture.

Next month, Musa who was named in Nigeria’s 25-man provisional squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will join the rest of his international teammates in Asaba, Delta State, for their first training camp.

Amrabat and Hamdallah are also expected to feature for Morocco in the biennial showpiece in Egypt.

The Super Eagles have been drawn in Group B against Burundi, Madagascar, and Guinea while the Atlas Lions are up against South Africa, Namibia and Ivory Coast in Group D.
