Read in 0.48 mintue

Undefeated Al Hilal won a record-extending 19th Saudi Pro League title on Saturday with a 4-1 victory over Al Hazem to reclaim the trophy from Al Ittihad who won it last season.

Jorge Jesus’s side hold a 12-point advantage over Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr in second with three matches remaining.

Aleksandar Mitrovic gave Al Hilal the lead from the penalty spot after 15 minutes but Faïz Selemani netted the equaliser for Al Hazem in the 34th minute.

However, Jesus’s side took the lead again with an own goal from Ahmed Al-Juwaid in the 39th minute.

Mitrovic scored again in first-half stoppage time and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic scored three minutes later to make it 4-1.
