QNB Stars League Week 3 – Al Wakrah vs Umm Salal
Saturday, 12th September, 2020
20:30 kick-off at Qatar SC Stadium
Al Wakrah face Umm Salal in Week 3 of the 2020-21 season QNB Stars League. The kick-off is at 20:30 at the Al Duhail Stadium on Saturday, 12th September, 2020.
Al Wakrah made headlines last week by handing a shock defeat to defending champions Al Duhail, with their spearhead Mohamed Benyettou netting the all-important goal.
The Blue Wave, under Spaniard Marquez Lopez, thus got their campaign on track after losing 1-2 to Al Ahli in their opener. They are now placed sixth with three points.
Al Wakrah had done well last season by finishing in the sixth position.
Umm Salal, 10th with one point, had a tough start to their new campaign as they lost to holders Al Duhail 0-3. But they battled back to play out a goalless draw with Al Khor in Week 2.
Umm Salal, coached by their former player Aziz Ben Askar from Morocco, are determined not to leave it late this time, like they did last season when they managed to finish 10th after being on the brink of relegation.
