Trabelsi gives Al Sailiya players rest until 2nd January


Al Sailiya’s Tunisian coach Sami Trabelsi has given his players rest until 2nd January, after which the team will prepare for the fifth round of QSL Cup.

The Peregrines will then start gearing up for the remaining fixtures of QNB Stars League, which will resume in February after the 2019 Asian Cup in the UAE (5th January to 1st February).

Al Sailiya are fifth in the QSL Cup Group B standings with just a point. They lost out on the chance to qualify for the quarterfinals following their 0-4 loss to Al Rayyan in Round 4 last week.

Thus, Al Sailiya’s Round 5 match against Al Shahania on 11th January is only of academic interest.

Al Sailiya are currently third in the QNB Stars League standings with 28 points, behind Al Sadd (38) and Al Duhail (36).
