Ooredoo Cup Round 3 – Qatar SC vs Al Arabi


Friday, 22nd November, 2019

18:10 kick-off at Al Ahli Stadium

Qatar SC face Al Arabi in Round 3 (Group B) of the 2019-20 Ooredoo Cup at the Al Ahli Stadium on Friday.

Qatar SC have been in excellent form of late. Precisely said, ever since former Qatar international midfielder Wesam Rizik took charge, replacing Spaniard Carlos Alos Ferrer.

The Kings had completed a hat-trick of victories to be placed ninth with 12 points in the 2019-20 QNB Stars League, which took a break before the second round of Ooredoo Cup.

Qatar SC continued from where they left and defeated Al Gharafa 3-0 in Round 2 of the Ooredoo Cup last week. They are leading Group B with six points, having defeated Al Sailiya 4-0 in the first round.

Qatar SC have a goal difference of +7 (seven goals for and none against). Indeed, they are the only side in the 12-team tournament not to have conceded a goal so far.

Al Arabi are third with four points. They made up for their 1-1 draw with Al Khor in Round 1 by defeating Al Sailiya 2-1 last week.

Heimir Hallgrimsson-coached Al Arabi have a goal difference of +1 (three goals for and two against).

The presence of leading scorers Brazilian forward Kayke Rodriguez, who scored Qatar SC’s all three goals against Al Gharafa, and Tunisian striker Hamdi Harbaoui, who netted Al Arabi’s both goals against Al Sailiya in Round 2, adds spice to the game.
