There are straightforward wins and then there are those where a team pulls off a great turnaround and produces a win that remain etched in the memories of players and fans alike for long.
Lekhwiya came from a goal down to defeat El Jaish 2-1 and set up a final clash with Al Sadd in the 2016 Emir Cup. Goals from Nam Tae-Hee and Mohamed Musa helped cancel out Abderrazzak Hamedallah’s early strike and give Djamel Belmadi’s boys a deserving victory.
Al Rayyan’s sudden loss of form could make for an interesting case study. After winning the Qatar Stars League with five matches to spare, they have rather mysteriously gone off the boil, their defeat to Lekhwiya in the Qatar Cup semi-finals on Sunday compounding their misery.
Stumbling Lekhwiya face highflying Al Ahli in round twenty five of the QSL at Al Ahli Stadium today. Lekhwiya will hope to get back to winning ways whilst Al Ahli will be hoping to continue their three-game winning streak.
