- Football - Qatar - Premier League
Al Sadd is now without ACL football this year after being eliminated by Iranian side Esteghlal. They bounced back after that disappointment with a 3-1 against last place Al Wakrah. Ibrahim Majed and Hamed Ismael are still suspended, but Pedro Miguel and Baghdad will return after suspension. They have much more quality than Al Arabi.
Al Arabi are an important name in Qatari football, but they have internal problems, problems with money and their season is not great at all. They have lost 4 key players this winter and for this match they have other key players which are injured or suspended. Skipper Boualem Khoukhi and Brazilian striker Paulinho are injured, while Vivien, Ramadan and Ahmed Fathy are suspended. They still have Imoh Ezekiel and Luis Jimenez up-front, but I think this is not enough against a strong opponent like Al Sadd. If the home side will take this seriously we should see a couple of goals scored by them and a comfortable win in the end.
