QNB Stars League Week 15 — Al Duhail vs Qatar SC
Al Duhail and Qatar SC will open Friday’s action in Week 15 of the QNB Stars League. The kick-off is at 16:00 at the Al Duhail Stadium.
Al Duhail were held to a 2-2 draw by Al Rayyan, while Qatar SC brought Al Sailiya’s good run to an end by scoring a 1-0 victory over them in the last round.
Defending champions Al Duhail are leading the table with 35 points, three more than second-placed Al Sadd. The Red Knights, who have a game in hand (against Al Sadd rescheduled from Week 9 due to AFC Champions League commitment), have the most number of victories to their credit (11).
Al Duhail have a goal difference of +26 (35 goals for and nine against) and are the only unbeaten side in the 12-team competition. Interestingly, they were held goalless by Al Rayyan in the first leg and those were the only occasions when they dropped points.
Al Sadd had cut Al Duhail’s lead on top from five to three points after the Week 14 action, so the latter will be keen to win in order to remain as strong contenders for the title.
Al Duhail’s first-leg game against Al Sadd has been rescheduled for 11th December.
Qatar SC are placed 10th with 14 points (four victories, eight defeats and two draws). The Kings have a goal difference of -9 (13 goals for and 22 against).
Last week’s win over Al Sailiya had helped Qatar SC stay clear of the danger zone.
Both teams have star players in their ranks, so fans have a treat in store.
