It was Musa’s second title with the Saudi Arabia Professional League champions. The 27-year-old was replaced by Abdulfattah Mohamed Adam five minutes from time.
Al Taawon took the lead through Cameroonian forward Leandre Tawamba Kana in the 18th minute. Abderrazak Hamdallah equalised for Al Nassr two minutes before the half hour mark.
