Al-Ittihad 3-4 Al-Hilal: Mitrovic hat-trick inspires

Karim Benzema netted a magnificent backheel goal for Al-Ittihad against Al-Hilal, but Aleksandar Mitrovic’s hat-trick for the opposing team settled the contest.

While Benzema executed an absolutely dazzling goal by niftily redirecting a cross, he found himself overshadowed by former Fulham standout Mitrovic.

The Serbian international accomplished a remarkable hat-trick, including a thunderous volley.

Ittihad initially seized the lead thanks to Romarinho, but Mitrovic equalized. Subsequently, Benzema and Abderrazak Hamdallah extended the score to 3-1, only for Mitrovic to add two more goals, bringing it to 3-3.

Salem Aldawsari then secured the victory for Hilal. It was a stirring comeback, propelling Hilal to the top of the Pro League standings.

On Thursday, Ittihad will take on Al Akhdoud, while Hilal will face Al-Riyadh on Friday.
