Doha, September 28 (QNA) – Al Sadd on Friday crushed Umm Salal 2-0 to stay unbeaten in the third round of the Qatar Stars League (QSL). Raul opened the scoring in the 25th minute and then later in the second half, the Spaniard orchestrated a neat move to help Hassan Al Haydos score the second in the 87th minute.
Former Real Madrid giant Raul produced a well-time snap-header off a corner kick jumping high in the air to deflect the ball into the net in the 25th minute.
It was the 35-year-old Spaniard’s third goal of the season. Raul fired two goals in the match against Qatar SC on September 23.
Watched by Qatar national coach Paulo Autuori, Al Sadd dominated played against Umm Salal who looked short on quality up front. Khalfan Ibrahim was benched in the 74th minute by coach Hussain Amute. Al Haydos in the 87th minute provided a calm finish to a one-two pass from Raul inside Umm Salal box. Also on Friday, Al Khor played a 2-2 draw against Qatar SC.
Madgid Mousa (16) and Mohammed Razzaq (19) scored for Qatar SC while Mohammed Juma (47) and Hassan Fataah (90+5) helped Al Khor manage a draw. After Friday’s draw, Qatar SC is still without a win in three games. Qatar lost to Al Rayyan and Al Sadd in the earlier two matches.
Al Khor beat Al Kharaitiyat on September 15 before playing a draw against Al Arabi last week. (QNA)
