Judging by Monday's result, Ahed would have observed the hyperbolic build up to the top-of-the-table clash with Nejmeh and wondered what all the fuss was about.Zein, a full-back by trade, brilliantly executed dual mandates which ultimately thwarted an outmatched Nejmeh.Jaloul was anonymous in midfield, failing to protect Nejmeh's backline which created large swathes of space between midfield and defense for Ahed to run into.Carrying the ball through unfamiliar midfield surroundings, Zein then split torpid pair Jaloul and Abdulfattah Achour before steaming through the heart of the Nejmeh defense and stroking his shot beyond the reach of Hasan.The omnipresent Faour cut out Ali Hamam's meek cross and then angled his pass toward Ahmad Zreik, who bypassed Nejmeh's midfield at breakneck speed and with alarming ease.
