QNB Stars League Week 19 Pre-Match Press Conference — Al Sailiya


Al Sailiya coach Sami Trabelsi spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 19 match against Al Khor.

“This is going to be a crucial game for us. Defeat will put us in real trouble. That means we may not finish in the top four at all this season if we drop three points.

“I hope our players are fully aware of the situation and bring out their best against Al Khor. I also hope they stay highly concentrated throughout the match so that we bag full points.

“Our objective is a top-four finish. We were there for long on merit. We deserve that. Unfortunately, our results in the second phase of QNB Stars League were not that impressive. We did well in many games that we lost. Obviously, something was missing. The players were distracted due to some off-the-field reasons. 

“If you look at our statistics, you can find that there have been two patterns in our game. We play very well against strong teams. At the same time, we fare badly against some weak sides. I still believe we will finish fourth,” said Trabelsi.
