Qatar SC had recorded strong results before the QNB Stars League took a two-month break. They had defeated third-placed Al Sailiya 1-0 in Week 14 and held reigning champions Al Duhail to a 1-1 draw in Week 15.
On the contrary, Al Shahania played out a 1-1 draw with Al Khor in Week 14, but then lost 1-4 to Al Sadd in Week 15.
Qatar SC will miss Syrian striker Osama Omari due to an injury. They had lost to Al Shahania 2-3 in the first leg, so they will be keen to avenge that loss.
Promoted team Al Shahania’s Spanish coach Jose Murcia has at his disposal a group of spirited players who have pulled off some good results.
