DOHA: Title-contenders Al Sadd and Al Ahli

registered identical victories over their respective

opponents to claim winning points in the Qatar Stars

League (QSL) yesterday at different venues in Doha.

Al Sadd scored a goal apiece in each half to overcome

Al Arabi 2-1 at their own backyard to continue the close

title-fight with rivals and defending champions Lekhwiya

in addition to owning the bragging rights in the traditional

Doha derby.

Their star striker Khalfan Ibrahim (pictured) gave them the

breakthrough by netting the goal in 43rd minute of the match.

Al Sadd made it 2-0 when Hasan Khalid Haydos found target

in the 65th minute.

Al Arabi got their consolation goal through Ahmad Mohamed

Shahi, two minutes before real time.

Al Ahli came up with a spirited performance as they came

from one goal behind to defeat 10-man El Jaish 2-1 in the

18th round of the Qatar Stars League at the Lekhwiya

Stadium on Saturday.

Wagner Ribeiro put the armymen ahead as early as in

the fifth minute, but minutes after they were reduced to

10 men on the hour mark, Al Ahli struck through Alain Dioko

and found a second goal through defender Pedro Correia in

the 78th. It turned out to be the winner.
