QNB Stars League Week 9 – Al Khor vs Al Gharafa

17:15 kick-off at Al Khor Stadium

Al Khor face Al Gharafa in Week 9 of the 2019-20 QNB Stars League. The kick-off is at 17:15 at the Al Khor Stadium on Saturday, 2nd November, 2019.

Al Khor have bagged only five points so far, so they badly need a string of positive results to move away from the danger zone.

Omar Najhi’s men, who were held goalless by Al Wakrah last week, have just one victory to their credit, while they drew two matches and lost four. The Knights have a goal difference of -5 (six goals for and 11 against).

Al Khor, however, have one advantage. They have played one game less as their Week 7 fixture against reigning champions Al Sadd was deferred due to The Wolves’ AFC Champions League commitment.

Slavisa Jokanovic-coached Al Gharafa are coming from a 1-2 loss to Al Duhail in Week 8. The Cheetahs have 14 points (four victories, two draws and as many defeats).

They have a goal difference of +5 (15 goals for and 10 against).

Victory is crucial for Al Gharafa to be among the top four, while it will do a world of good to Al Khor’s campaign.
