19:30 kick-off at Al Khor Stadium

Al Kharaitiyat face Umm Salal in Round 4 (Group B) of the 2020-21 season Ooredoo Cup at the Al Khor Stadium on Tuesday. The kick-off is at 19:30.

Al Kharaitiyat are currently third in the group with six points, behind Al Gharafa (nine points) and Al Arabi (seven points), that they have from their victories over Al Rayyan (4-1) and Al Ahli (2-0) in the first two rounds.

However, Al Kharaitiyat suffered a 1-3 defeat at the hands of Al Gharafa in Round 4. So The Thunders will be keen to get back on the winning path when they cross swords with Umm Salal.

Umm Salal are placed fifth in Group B with only a point they collected from their 1-1 draw with Al Ahli in Round 3. The Orange Fortress had lost 0-2 to Al Gharafa in Round 1 and then 0-3 to Al Arabi.

Al Rayyan, Umm Salal and Al Ahli are all on one point, but Al Rayyan are placed ahead of Umm Salal by virtue of having scored more number of goals (2 as against Umm Salal’s 1) after both teams had same goal difference (-5). Al Ahli were pushed behind with a goal difference of -6.

Umm Salal, in their bid to keep their knockout hopes alive, will surely give Al Kharaitiyat a tough fight.
