QNB Stars League Week 17 – Al Arabi vs Al Khor


Friday, 6th March, 2020

19:05 kick-off at Al Arabi Stadium

Al Arabi face Al Khor in Week 17 of the 2019-20 QNB Stars League. The kick-off is at 19:05 at the Al Arabi Stadium on Friday, 6th March, 2020.

Al Arabi are on a high as they are unbeaten in their last three league matches, drawing against Umm Salal (1-1), Al Shahania (0-0) and Al Sadd (1-1).

The Dream Team’s draw against reigning champions Al Sadd last week was indeed creditable, given that they had suffered a 1-6 loss in their first-leg Qatar Derby.

No doubt, this is a vastly-improved Al Arabi side, especially defensively.

Al Arabi are sixth in the standings with 21 points (five wins, as many defeats and six draws). Their goal difference is +2 (26 goals for and 24 against).

Al Khor are also on a high, having beaten Qatar SC 2-0 last week. The Knights are placed 10th with 14 points (three wins, five draws and eight defeats). Their goal difference is -7 (19 goals for and 26 against).

Al Khor would be looking to bag as many points as possible as they are not completely safe from the threat of relegation.

Al Arabi had beaten Al Khor 3-1 in the first leg of 2019-20 QNB Stars League.
