QNB Stars League Week 19 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Duhail


Al Duhail coach Djamel Belmadi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 19 match against Al Sadd.

“The game, between two big teams that occupy the first two positions in the table, is significant as the outcome will more or less decide who will win the championship.

“Everyone thinks that the winners of this match will win the league shield, but there are games remaining for the two teams. We will go into the match in a better position because we are better placed.

“We deserve to be crowned because we did not lose any game and we had beaten Al Sadd in the first phase. However, we must prove that we deserve this title and we will be at our best. If they want to beat us, they must be stronger than us.

“We have perhaps the best attack line in Asia according to the number of goals we have scored and we try to rectify our mistakes after every match. We are aware of A Sadd’s offensive ability.

“We will be disappointed if we lose the league title as we have had an excellent season. Right now, our priority is the Al Sadd game. After that, we will think about the AFC Champions League,” said Belmadi.
