Al Sadd started off the second leg of QNB Stars League on a disappointing note losing 1-2 to Al Wakrah, but made a strong comeback by defeating Al Arabi 6-1 in the Qatar Derby, which was deferred from an earlier date owing to their 2019 AFC Champions League commitment.
The Wolves then defeated Al Khor in another deferred match and went on to beat Al Rayyan in the Qatar Cup semifinal by a 4-1 margin.
Al Sadd beat Al Shahania 4-2 last week.
Al Sailiya, on the other hand, are going through tough times. They are sixth in the standings with 17 points (five wins, two draws and six defeats). Their goal difference is -2 (15 goals for and 17 against).
The latest blow they suffered was in the 2020 AFC Champions League play-off, where they lost to Tajikistan’s Shahr Khodro on penalties after the regular time and extra time ended goalless on Tuesday.
Al Sailiya, who began their campaign in the second leg of QNB Stars League by losing 1-2 to Al Khor, crashed to a 0-1 defeat against Al Ahli last week.
Al Sadd had beaten Al Sailiya 3-1 in the first leg of 2019-20 QNB Stars League.
