Ooredoo Cup Round 1 – Al Wakrah vs Qatar SC

20:15 kick-off at Al Gharafa Stadium

Al Wakrah face Qatar SC in Round 1 (Group A) of the 2020-21 season Ooredoo Cup at the Al Gharafa Stadium on Saturday.

Al Wakrah are having a good run in the 2020-21 season QNB Stars League as they stand a creditable third with six points from two victories. After losing their opener to Al Ahli by a 1-2 margin, The Blue Wave bounced back brilliantly to beat reigning champions Al Duhail 1-0 and Umm Salal 2-0.

Coached by Spaniard Marquez Lopez, Al Wakrah will be keen to maintain their winning run.

Qatar SC are also on a high, having beaten last season’s runners-up Al Rayyan 1-0 in Week 3 of the 2020-21 QNB Stars League, which has now taken a break. The Kings, who had lost their first two matches (0-2 against Al Gharafa and 1-2 against Al Kharaitiyat), are eighth in the table with three points.

Qatar SC, under former Qatar international midfielder Younis Ali, will also look forward to an improved performance in the Ooredoo Cup.
