With the third round of the QNB Stars League just around the corner, we at QSL online have decided to look at last rounds team of the week, to highlight the key player heading into the weekends action. All of our selections have been provided by STATS the official statistical partner for the QNB Stars League.
First up in goal is Al Gharafa stopper Qasem Burhan. The former Qatar international preformed well and kept a clean sheet in his sides 0-0 draw with Umm Salal. Burhan is joined by Duhail’s attacking right back Ismael Mohammed who impressed in his sides 2-0 win over Al Ahli. Whilst a second Duhail defender makes up the back four, with Lucas Mendes getting in the starting line up for his display in the win.
Iranian defender Mohammad Tayyebi of Qatar SC also gets the nod at centre back, the summer signing was in supreme form as Qatar SC registered their first win of the season against fellow promoted side Al Markhiya. The defence is completed by Reza Najafi who played well at left-back in Al Khor’s win over Al Ahli.
Two Duhail midfielders make up a part of the three man midfield following their dominating performance over Arabi. Last season’s QFA player of the year Nam Tae Hee has continued from last season, playing his best football for the newly formed Duhail side. Nam is joined by Qatar international midfielder Karim Boudiaf, who has been one of his sides consistent sides down the years. Boudiaf yet again put in a solid performance in the 2-0 win for this side. The midfield trio is completed by Rayyan captain Rodrigo Tabata who scored a goal in his sides 3-1 victory against Al Kharaitiyat.
In attack, Al Khor’s diminutive winger Madson gets the nod on the right wing. The Brazilian scored the second goal in his sides 2-0 win over Al Ahli, striking the ball all the way from the half way line. Madson is joined by team-mate Soroush Rafiei who struck the opener in the match. The Iranian has settled well at Al Khor, and club management will be hoping for more of the same from the playmaker over the course of the season. The team of the week is completed by Al Rayyan attacker Sebastian Soria who lead the line perfectly for his side, bagging a brace in the victory over Al Kharaitiyat.
