QNB Stars League Week 14 — Al Sailiya vs Qatar SC


Al Sailiya play host to Qatar SC in the second match of Week 14 of the QNB Stars League on Friday, 30th November. The kick-off is at 18:30 at the Al Ahli Stadium.

Al Sailiya are in great form of late. They are third with 25 points (eight wins, one draw and four defeats). They have a goal difference of +11 (25 goals for and 14 against).

Qatar SC, coached by Argentinian Sergio Batista, are 10th with 11 points (three wins, two draws and eight defeats) to have a goal difference of -10 (12 goals for and 22 against).

Al Sailiya, who pulled off a last-gasp 2-1 victory over Al Gharafa in the last round, will be keen to extend their good form that will guarantee them a top-four finish. Any slip-up will threaten their bid to achieve the target as Al Ahli are breathing down the neck of both Al Sailiya and Al Rayyan with 22 points, one less than fourth-placed Al Rayyan.

On the other hand, Qatar SC, who lost 0-1 to Al Ahli in Week 13, would be eager to move away from the danger zone with a few positive results.

Al Sailiya, under Tunisian Sami Trabelsi, will continue to miss Moroccan spearhead Rachid Tiberkanine due to suspension.

Al Sailiya had beaten Qatar SC 2-0 in the first leg.
