QNB Stars League Week 8 — Qatar SC 2 Al Kharaitiyat 0
Hosts Qatar SC recorded a 2-0 victory against Al Kharaitiyat in Week 8 of the QNB Stars League on Friday.
Goals came from Samuel Eto’o in the sixth minute and Osama Omari in the 45th minute.
A lively encounter started in blistering fashion as Qatar SC were able to score an early goal and settle the nerves. Experienced Cameroonian striker Eto’o found his range from 25 yards with a precisely-struck shot that found its way into the top right-hand corner.
They were able to increase their lead on the stroke of half-time as Eto’o became provider to Syrian striker Omari who struck home in almost identical fashion.
Omari’s shot from distance was unstoppable and secured a healthy half-time lead for The Kings, who took the field under new coach Sergio Batista from Argentina.
Into the second half, Al Kharaitiyat quickly pressed for a comeback, but were thwarted on multiple occasions by the superb goalkeeping of Jassim Al Hail.
He twice denied the away side with finger-tip saves and played a huge part in his side’s much-needed victory.
