Al Hilal regained its balance after defeating its leading guest with a clean double, to qualify for the quarter-finals of the King’s Cup, in the confrontation hosted by King Fahd International Stadium in the capital, Riyadh, in the final price round of the competition, on Monday.
Al Hilal did not know the taste of victories in the last 3 matches it played in the league, as it drew against Abha and Al Fayhaa and lost in Al Nasr.
The match witnessed an advantage for Al Hilal, who waited only 5 minutes until Argentine player Luciano Vieto scored the first goal after receiving a distinctive pass from his colleague Salman Al-Faraj to receive the ball skillfully and put it in the net.
Al Hilal continued its attack and a dangerous opportunity arose with its player Vito, who penetrated Al Raed’s defense and hit a strong ball, but it found goalkeeper Ahmed Al-Rahili, who pushed it away with difficulty.
In the second half, Al Hilal continued its advantage and a dangerous opportunity was given to its player, Vito, who headed the cross of his colleague Yasser Al Shahrani, but found defender Aqil Balghith, who removed her from the goal line.
Al Hilal intensified its attack, and its Peruvian player Andre Carrillo scored the second goal at the 75th minute, after receiving a unique pass from his colleague Vito to face the goal and put the ball into the net.
The match witnessed the expulsion of Al-Raed defender Mohamed Salem at the 77th minute for obtaining the second yellow card due to his protest against the referee’s decision to calculate Al Hilal’s second goal.
