There was a rain of goals in the early kickoffs of the Roshn Super League.
Steven Gerrard continued his mastermind of Al Ettifaq who secured a dramatic 4-3 victory over Al Tai.
Georginio Wijnaldum and Moussa Dembele both got on the brace to make Bernard Mensah’s hat-trick mean little in the encounter.
The Ghanaian Mensah twice put his team ahead but it meant little as two late goals from Wijnaldum and Dembele secured maximum points for the Dammam giants.
Ettifaq now move to third on the log and within a point of leaders Al Hilal who could only draw 1-1 away from home.
Al Taawoun continue to wax tongues as they yet again earned a hard fought 2-1 victory over Al Raed in the derby.
Two goals inside the opening twenty minutes from Joao Pedro and Waleed Al Ahmed set Pericles Chamusca’s side on for another laboured win.

Oumar Gonzalez did pull one back before the end of the half but it was to be the last goal of the game with Al Taawoun now just a point off top spot.
Al Hilal could only return with a share of the spoils from their away date against Damac club.
The Blues scored very early in the game through Malcom but saw their lead cancelled through Nicolae Stanciu’s 68th minute free kick.
Jorge Jesus would be worried they could not get the job done against a struggling Damac side who’re yet to have a win this season.
