Ooredoo Cup Round 3 – Al Arabi vs Al Rayyan

19:45 kick-off at Al Arabi Stadium

Al Arabi face Al Rayyan in Round 3 (Group B) of the 2020-21 season Ooredoo Cup at the Al Arabi Stadium on Wednesday. The kick-off is at 19:45.

Al Arabi are leading the group with six points and an all-win record, having earlier beaten Al Ahli 5-1 and Al Kharaitiyat 2-0.

The Dream Team will be eager to put behind the disappointment of losing 0-4 to Al Sadd in the 2019-20 season Ooredoo Cup final in the weekend and continue their winning run when they face traditional rivals Al Rayyan, mainly because of both teams’ ardent fan following.

On the other hand, Al Rayyan have yet to open their account, along with Umm Salal and Al Ahli, and are fourth in Group B. The Lions have the same goal difference (-5) as Umm Salal, but are placed above The Orange Fortress having scored a goal, compared to the latter’s nil.

Al Rayyan, who had finished as runners-up in the 2019-20 season QNB Stars League with just one point behind Al Duhail, previously lost 1-4 to Al Kharaitiyat and 0-2 to Al Gharafa.
