QNB Stars League- Thursday Preview


Round three of the QNB Stars League season kicks off on Thursday evening when Al Markhiya takes on Al Sailiya at Al Arabi stadium. Both sides lost out in round two and will be eager to get back to winning ways ahead of the two week international break.


Yusef Adam’s Markhiya narrowly lost 1-0 to fellow promoted side Qatar SC, and will be hunting their first points of the season. Ghanian striker Kwame Karikari was the sides most dangerous player in the second half and the target man will be hoping he can influence the tie in favour of the Oryxes. 


As for Al Sailiya, they will have to pick themselves up after their 3-2 loss to Al Sadd. Sami Trabelsi’s men will feel hard done by after a late equaliser was denied by a correct offside call. The Peregrines will be aiming for their second win of the season, and will be hoping Mohammed Muddather can register his first goals of the season. Muddather was a constant danger for his team last campaign, and will be seeing the match against Markhiya as the ideal match to open his account for the side this year.
