QNB Stars League Week 15 — Al Kharaitiyat vs Al Rayyan


Al Kharaitiyat will face another stern test when they run into Al Rayyan in Week 15 of the QNB Stars League on Thursday, 6th December. The kick-off is at 18:30 at the Al Khor Stadium.

Al Rayyan are fourth in the standings with 24 points (six wins, as many draws and two defeats). The Lions have a goal difference of +2 (16 goals for and 14 against).

On the other hand, Al Kharaitiyat very much stare at relegation as they are lying at the rock bottom of the table with only three points (from the victory they registered against Al Gharafa in the first leg). The Thunders lost all other matches.

Al Kharaitiyat have a goal difference of -31 (10 goals for and 41 against), the most by any team.

Al Rayyan are on a high after holding defending champions and table toppers Al Duhail to a 2-2 draw in Week 14.

Interestingly, Al Rayyan had held Al Duhail goalless in the first leg and those two were the only occasions when Al Duhail dropped points in the 2018-19 season QNB Stars League.

It is vital for Al Rayyan not to drop points in their bid to finish among the top-four teams, as Al Ahli are breathing down their neck.

Al Rayyan had beaten Al Kharaitiyat 2-1 in the first leg.
