Salem Al-Dawsari had given Al Hilal the lead in the 16th minute before 
Haroune Camara leveled parity for the visitor in the 58th minute.

Ighalo, who has been named for this month’s 2022 W’Cup playoff against Ghana by interim coach of the Super Eagles, Austine Eguavoen, was later substituted in the 90th minute for Al-Shehri.

The victory means Al Hilal sit 4th on the league table on 43 points while Al Ittihad remain at the top on 54 points.
