QNB Stars League Week 13 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Sailiya


Al Sailiya coach Sami Trabelsi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 13 match against Al Sadd.

“The matches against Al Sadd are always tough. We had to make some corrections in our game after going winless for four matches in which we suffered two defeats and as many draws.

“Our main problem of late is lack of consistency in performance. That way, we are in the same ship as Al Sadd. They also play very well in one match and fumble in the next. They had to even draw with Al Markhiya last week.

“However, Al Sadd are a big team with so many titles to their credit and we should never underestimate them. They suffered in some games because of injuries to key players. And ace striker Baghdad Bounedjah is again a doubtful starter.

“But then, Bahgdad did not play in the first three matches and they have a truly world-class player in Xavi (Hernandez) who can change the game on his own.

“We will provide a good game and I am hopeful we will get a positive result from this game. We will play at our best level,” said Trabelsi.
