Fathy most likely for Qatar Derby


Al Arabi’s Croatian coach Luka Bonacic hopes to field midfielder Ahmed Fathy in their QNB Stars League Week 17 match against Al Sadd, dubbed the Qatar Derby, on Saturday, 17th February.

Fathy was missing in action in their 0-4 loss to Al Ahli in Week 16 due to an injury he sustained during their goalless draw with Umm Salal in the previous round.

Al Arabi are 11th in the standings with only 12 points. They had lost the first-phase Qatar Derby by a 1-3 margin.
