Ammouta wary of injuries before Lokomotiv match
DOHA: Al Sadd coach Lhoussaine Ammouta also has injury concerns ahead of meeting Uzbekistan’s Lokomotiv on
Wednesday in Tashkent with defender Ibrahim Majed and midfield Talal Al Bloushi set to miss the tie for the
unbeaten Group C leaders, who could qualify for the last 16 with two games to spare.
“I expect an interesting and difficult match. Lokomotiv still have a chance to qualify to the Round 16 and they
will try to show their best on the field. We also want to reach a victory,” said Ammouta, with his side currently
three points clear at the top of Group C while also still in the hunt for domestic honours heading into the final
two games of the Qatar Stars League season.
“We give attention to the Qatar championship and AFC Champions League together. We have two more games
in championship and we will continue to battle for the first place until the last chance. Our management wants us
to have good results on the international scene also.
“Lokomotiv is a good team. I watched many games of Lokomotiv and I have a positive impression.”
