QNB Stars League Week 15 Preview


The QNB Stars League’s Week 15 matches will be played on Thursday, 6th December, Friday, 7th December, and Saturday, 8th December, with two games on each day.

The fixtures are Al Gharafa vs Al Ahli (16:00) at the Al Gharafa Stadium and Al Kharaitiyat vs Al Rayyan (18:30) at the Al Khor Stadium on Thursday, Al Duhail vs Qatar SC (16:00) at the Al Duhail Stadium and Al Shahania vs Al Sadd (18:30) at the Al Arabi Stadium on Friday, Al Khor vs Al Sailiya (16:00) at the Al Khor Stadium and Umm Salal vs Al Arabi (18:30) at the Al Gharafa Stadium on Saturday.

Al Gharafa will take on in-form Al Ahli in the opening match of the last round before the QNB Stars League takes a long break. The rescheduled game between Al Sadd and Al Duhail has been scheduled for 11th December.

Al Gharafa had lost big-time to Al Sadd, while Al Ahli held Umm Salal goalless in the last round.

Al Ahli are fifth with 22 points and Al Gharafa sixth with 18 points.

It will be followed by the Al Kharaitiyat vs Al Rayyan game.

Al Rayyan did well in holding leaders Al Duhail to a 2-2 draw in Week 14. They should have it easy against Al Kharaitiyat who crashed to their 12th defeat, 1-2 against Al Arabi.

Al Duhail face Qatar SC, who are on a high after beating Al Sailiya by a lone goal.

Qatar SC have 11 points as against third-placed Al Sailiya’s 25 points.

Next up is Al Shahania vs Al Sadd fixture.

Al Shahania held Al Khor 1-1 and Al Sadd defeated Al Gharafa 8-1 in the last round.

Saturday’s action will first pit Al Khor against Al Sailiya. Both teams will be eager to win, Al Khor to stay away from the danger zone and Al Sailiya to cement their position in the top four.

Umm Salal play Al Arabi in the final fixture of the round.

Umm Salal have not tasted victory for long, while Al Arabi too will be looking to collect as many points as possible. And that will make this contest too interesting.
