Umm Salal to miss suspended Alawi


Umm Salal will miss suspended midfielder Adel Alawi for their QNB Stars League Week 9 match against Qatar SC as he had picked up his fourth yellow card during their 1-4 loss to Al Sadd last week.

Alawi has been a key player in Egyptian coach Mahmoud Jaber’s scheme of things.

Umm Salal are currently fifth with 13 points and have suffered two consecutive defeats. They will also be without Maher Youssef, who was suspended by the Qatar Football Association’s Disciplinary Committee for two matches over violent play during their loss to Al Sailiya in Week 7.

However, tall striker Mohammed El Sayed, who has recovered from an injury, is likely to play against Qatar SC.
