The QNB Stars League Week 5 fixtures on Friday are Al Arabi vs Al Rayyan (18:00) and Al Shahania vs Qatar SC (20:10). Both matches are at Al Arabi Stadium.
Al Arabi vs Al Rayyan
Both Al Arabi and Al Rayyan will be keen to extend their winning streak, having beaten Umm Salal and Al Kharaitiyat in the previous round.
The real shocker of the week was provided by Al Arabi as they put it across Umm Salal 5-1 to stay in the fourth spot with nine goals, behind Al Sailiya on goal difference.
Al Rayyan remained fifth in the table with eight points.
The match is sure to be a thriller both on and off the field as Al Arabi and Al Rayyan traditionally have passionate fan base.
Al Shahania vs Qatar SC
Qatar SC may not find promoted Al Shahania a pushover side.
Qatar SC gave Al Duhail a good run for their money in Week 4 before losing. The Kings had surged ahead by two goals at half-time and The Red Knights had to stage a brilliant fightback to emerge as victorious.
Al Shahania and Qatar SC are eighth and ninth in the table with four and three points respectively.
Qatar SC have not won ever since their win over Al Gharafa in Week 1, while Al Shahania also have only one victory (against Al Kharaitiyat) to their credit.
