QSL Cup Group B - Round 2 Preview - Al Sadd Vs Al Rayyan


Al Sadd eye first victory, Al Rayyan seek second

An action-packed encounter is on the cards when Al Sadd take on Al Rayyan in a Group B fixture of the QSL Cup on Wednesday. The concluding Round 2 match will kick off at the Al Khor Stadium at 17:35.

The game was originally scheduled for Monday, 9th October, but had to be postponed twice, first to 12th October and was then moved up by one day.

The first change was effected by the Qatar Stars League Management in view of Al Sadd’s friendly against Turkish side Trabzonspor, which the Qatari side lost 1-2, on Sunday. Then, Al Rayyan had made a request that resulted in a second change in date.

Going into the game, Al Sadd will be keen to start their account in the competition as they had lost 0-2 to Al Markhiya in Round 1. Al Rayyan, meanwhile, will look to build on their 2-0 victory over Al Ahli in their opener.

Al Arabi, Al Ahli, Umm Salal and Al Markhiya are the other teams in Group B. Group A comprises Al Khor, Al Kharaitiyat, Qatar SC, Al Sailiya, Al Duhail and Al Gharafa.
