We’re ready to face Al Sadd: Al Duhail coach Faria


Al Duhail coach Rui Faria spoke to the media ahead of their 2019-20 QNB Stars League Week 9 match against Al Sadd.

“We are ready to face Al Sadd. Everyone is waiting for this clash which, we hope, will be a highly-enjoyable game. Certainly, it will be difficult for Al Duhail and Al Sadd. We are facing very strong opponents who have a large number of players of the Qatar senior national team.

“There is no doubt that Al Duhail are a special team with outstanding players. Our target is to get three points.

“Al Duhail are playing every match with one target - victory. This game assumes greater significance as Al Sadd are our direct opponents for the title,” said Faria.

Al Duhail player Almoez Ali said, “Matches between these two teams always evoke great excitement. As players, we are fully prepared and we hope that we will win the game. Our loss to Al Sadd in the AFC Champions League was difficult and we have learnt many things from it.”
