QNB Stars League Week 15 — Al Kharaitiyat 0 Al Rayyan 6
Al Rayyan eased past Al Kharaitiyat 6-0 in Week 15 of the 2018-19 season QNB Stars League at the Al Khor Stadium on Thursday.
An own goal by Al Kharaitiyat’s Ali Fayez started it all in the first minute of the match.
Sebastian Soria (24th minute), Lucca Borges (69th and 84th), Rodrigo Tabata (71st) and Jonathan Menendez (84th) produced classy goals to complete Al Rayyan’s commanding show.
In a shocking start to the proceedings, Al Kharaitiyat conceded an own goal as early as the opening minute.
Tabata, who picked up a loose ball inside the Al Kharaitiyat box, shot a cross to Soria, but the home team’s Fayez deflected the ball into his own net with keeper Ahmed Sofyan in no position to stop the ball.
Al Rayyan doubled their lead through a combined effort of seasoned duo Tabata and Soria. The Al Rayyan skipper curled in a corner kick and Soria, stationed just a few metres away from Al Kharaitiyat goalmouth, back-headed the ball into the net with a short jump.
Al Rayyan went 3-0 up when Lucca headed home from an acute angle off a loopy cross that came his way.
The Lions jumped to a 4-0 cushion following a powerful drive by Tabata off a cross from Soria.
Lucca then drilled in a low deflection from close range off a cross from Menendez, who also netted a goal just a minute later following a cross from Khalfan Ibrahim.
