Lekhwiya maintain unbeaten record, Crush Saudi’s Al Fateh
Doha: Four first-half goals saw Lekhwiya confirm themselves
winners of Group B of the 2017 AFC Champions League as
Djemal Belmadi’s side handed Al Fateh from Saudi Arabia
a 4-1 defeat on Tuesday.
Victory ensured the Qatar Stars League side finished the
group phase with an unbeaten record and they will now
meet Iran’s Persepolis, who finished as runners-up in
Group D, in the Round of 16 later this month.
Mohammed Musa gave his side the lead after just nine
minutes before further goals from Yousef Msakni, Ali
Hassan Afif and Chico Flores inside the opening 45
minutes effectively ended the game as a contest, with
Flores’ late own goal merely a consolation for the
eliminated Al Fateh.
