Umm Salal and Al Shahania played out a 2-2 draw in Week 17 of the 2019-20 QNB Stars League at the Al Gharafa Stadium on Thursday.

January signing Raul Becerra scored Umm Salal’s goals in the second and 52nd minutes.

Kesse Amanguoa (16th minute) and Ramin Rezaein (78th minute) scored for Al Shahania.

Umm Salal and Al Shahania now have 14 and 10 points respectively, and still stare at relegation as the bottom teams. They both need to pull up their socks if they are to move away from the danger zone.

Becerra gave Umm Salal an early advantage until Amanguoa helped Al Shahania draw parity as the latter had slightly more of the ball till the end of first half.

The Orange Fortress went ahead for a second time seven minutes into the second half, again through Becerra, and Rezaein’s goal enabled Al Shahania to earn a crucial point.

Both teams pressed hard in pursuit of a winning goal, but the scoreline remained the same.

Umm Salal had been faring well in the previous four rounds as well, beating Al Wakrah and Al Khor as well as holding Al Arabi and Al Sadd.

Al Shahania and Umm Salal had played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg of 2019-20 QNB Stars League.
