League strugglers Al Khor grabbed a vital three points against fellow relegation strugglers Al Sailiya after beating them 3-1 in Monday’s early Round 15 QSL kick off at Al Ahli Stadium. Both sides headed into the game hovering dangerously above the QSL relegation zone so were hoping for a crucial three points to try and pull away from trouble. It was Al Khor that got off to a dream start, bagging a goal with just three minutes gone thanks to a goal from their Brazilian import Madison who slotted home from close range. Al Sailiya failed to deal with the first corner of the game and after some scuffed clearances from their back four, the ball landed at the feet of Al Khor’s number 5, Sultan Al Enezi, who spotted Madison was waiting in space on the right and squared a ball to the Brazilian who hit it first time and drove a hard shot into the bottom left hand corner of the goal to give The Knights a 1-0 lead. The rest of the first half was finely balanced in terms of possession but neither side created any clear cut chances on goal and it went into half time 1-0 to Al Khor. Al Sailiya started the second half well and were playing fluid football until their big number 4, Mostafa Mohamed, took a high boot to the face, giving him an immediate swelling under his right eye and nasty cut on the forehead that took medics some time to treat. This stoppage seemed to break Al Sailiya’s concentration and just two minute after play had restarted, the Brazilian Madison struck again to make it 2-0 from ten yards out. Al Sailiya looked to regain their composure and get back into the game but any chances of a point were snuffed out when Mohsen Yagur found himself in the six yard box and in front of an open goal on the 79th minute to make it 3-0. Parou Sadeeqi made a darting run that beat the offside trap and delivered a lightening ball across the front of goal which left Yagur with a simple finish from just a yard out. ​There was some last minute drama and a consolation goal for Al Sailiya after they were awarded a penalty on the 91st minute. Despite Al Khor’s goalkeeper Baba Jibril saving the first attempt, replays showed he left his line before the ball was struck and he was sent off with a second yellow card his protests to the referee who blew for the penalty to be retaken. Al Khor had already used all their substitutes so up stepped his outfield teammate, Ali Abdul Karim, who valiantly put the gloves on and nearly saved the penalty. There was just too much power behind the spot kick though and it went in to finish the game 3-1 to Al Khor. The vital three points draws Al Khor level with Al Sailiya in the league with 15 points each.

Umm Salal achieved a difficult and valuable win over Al Khor by beating them by two goals to one in their 18:25 kick off at Al Khor Stadium for Round 14 of the QSL. Umm Salal were able to finish the first half in the lead thanks to a goal from their big number 13, Yannick Sagbo, whose shot beat Papa Djebril after just 12 minutes, and a crucial second goal from Hilal Mohamed right before the stroke of half time on the 44th minute. The game was finely balanced between both sides until Sagbo scored Umm Salal’s first goal. Al Khor didn’t let their heads drop after going behind though and heaped the pressure on the Orange Fortress’ back four looking for that equalizer, maintaining the lion’s share of possession for the remainder of the game. Al Khor’s Madison and Yagor failed to take advantage of some good goal scoring opportunities and were denied thanks to some excellent goalkeeping. Umm Salal’s defense held up well against the relentless pressure from Al Khor and the Orange Fortress relied heavily on counter attacks which paid dividends right before the end of the first half when Hilal Mohammad scored their second. Al Khor succeeded in scoring their only goal of the game in the second half when on the 58th minute Sultan Al Enzi received a pass from Saleh Badr inside the penalty area and netted home from close range. Umm Salal player Saleh Al Yahri was unfortunately severely injured and moved to the hospital at the 65th minute. Despite the superiority of Al Khor during the remaining time, their players didn’t manage to break Umm Salal’s strong defense and Umm Salal left with all three points. With this result Umm Salal reaches 19 points while Al Khor stays languishing in the league’s lower positions on 12 points.

League strugglers Al Khor beat current QSL champions Al Rayyan 2-1 to claim three points at Al Khor Stadium . Reigning champions Al Rayyan were looking for their third straight league win in order to keep the pressure on the top teams after a poor start to the season but instead left empty handed after conceding two late goals from Al Khor who were in desperate need for three points to avoid a relegation fight. Al Rayyan came out looking the livelier team and kept the ball in Al Khor’s own half for the first for the first ten minutes of the game. Al Khor began playing some decent counter attacking football and managed to carve out a number of chances but it was Al Rayyan that found the back of the net first thanks for a goal from Uruguyan defender, Gonzalo Viera. Al Rayyan’s captain, Rodrigo Tabata, glided in a lovely cross from a free kick on the left wing that was expertly controlled in the 18 yard box by their big number 23, Sebastian Soria. After some fancy footwork in the box, Soria was able to evade his marker and drill a low, hard cross into the six yard box where Viera was lurking and able to stab the ball home from just two yards out to give The Lions the lead. The second half started much like the first did, with Al Rayyan dominating possession. Al Rayyan’s first clear cut chance of the second half came on the 59th minute when Tabata latched onto a lovely through ball when running into the 18 yard box and hit a low, hard shot aiming for the bottom left hand corner of Al Khor’s goal. Al Khor’s goalkeeper, Baba Djibril, was quick to spot the danger when the ball was played and able come out and get down quickly once Tabata let rip, deflecting the shot past his post with an outstretched left leg. Al Khor began to overturn the possession and take control of the game in the hunt for the equaliser. The pressure paid off and their equaliser came on the 82nd minute thanks to a scrappy goal from Musab Majid who slotted the ball home from six yards out after the goalkeeper failed to keep hold of a hard header from Saleh Al Yazidi who found space and leapt well to connect with a fierce cross. The equaliser spurred Al Khor on and just six minutes later, they got the winner and snatched a vital three points thanks to a sublime solo goal from Babou Sidiki​. Picking the ball up on the right wing 22 yards out, Sidiki ran at two backtracking Al Rayyan defenders only to cut inside and unleash a lightening shot from the edge of the 18 yard box, leaving the goalkeeper with little chance as it smashed onto the post before hitting the net. The three points will be a big sigh of relief for Al Khor who are hoping to avoid a relegation fight. Leaving empty handed may have all but ended Al Rayyan’s hopes of retaining the championship.

League strugglers Al Shahania and Al Khor took a point each after drawing 2-2 at Al ArabiStadium in one of Friday’s two early QSL kick offs. Both teams came into the tie desperately needing three points with Al Shahania becoming draw specialists after registering three ties in their last five QSL matches and Al Khor losing their last five games and heading towards the relegation. After a lacklustre opening which saw not a single shot on goal, Al Khor took the lead after they were gifted a penalty following some poor defending from The Oryxes. Sloppy passing between Al Shahania’s back four handed Al Khor’s Babou Sidiki the ball on the edge of the 18 yard box and allowed him to run at goal. Before Skid was able to get a shot away he was tripped by a backtracking Nabeel Anwa and the referee was quick to blow for a penalty. Al Khor’s Brazilian defender Welinton Souza, stepped up and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to give The Knights a one goal lead. Al Khor made it two just before the break after yet more defensive errors from Shahania. After a cross was whipped into the 18 yard box from the right wing, Al Khor’s number 14, Reza Shanbeh Najafi, found himself with acres of space at the back post and was able to find young striker Ali Abdulkarem, who was unmarked and able to help the ball across the line from a yard out to bag his first goal of the season. Al Shahania came out after the break with a determined look about them and started pressing from the whistle. Their sustained pressure paid off on the 61st minute when on loan Qatari striker, Fahad Khalfan, hit a lightening free kick from 22 yards out that smashed into the top right hand corner of the goal. Nine minutes later Al Shahania grabbed a well-deserved equaliser after Al Khor’s Captain, Mostafa Jafri, failed to deal with a long goal kick from Al Shahania’s Al-Dosari. Thinking his goalkeeper was coming out to take the ball, Jafri left it to bounce but failed to realise that Al Shahania’s number 10, Kaled Gourmi, was chasing him down. Khaled managed to poke the ball from between Jafri’s legs before his keeper could reach it and it trickled into the back of the net to make it 2-2. Al Shahania maintained the pressure but were unable to find the winner and both teams left with a point. Al Khor continue their downward spiral towards relegation and Al Shahania maintain their title of draw specialists, making it four draws from six games.

Al Wakrah Beats Al Khor 1-0 to score their first win of the QSL season but the two sides could barely mpress with their on-field tactics. Mohsine Moutaouali scored the only goal of the match in the 43rd minute at Al Wakrah Stadium In the first 10 minutes of the clash, the visitors Al Khor enjoyed more ball possession compared to the home side coached Tunisian coach Kais Yâakoubi.    However the the round 10 clash turned into a physical game as Al Khor’s Mouhssine Iajour seemingly head-butted Al Wakrah's Ali Hussain,captain of the home side, as the players got ready for a free-kick. Hussain collapsed - as if struck by lightning - causing a stoppage in play amid constant berating and finger-pointing from players of the two sides.   After much delay, when the free-kick was finally taken, it was Iajour's turn to put on a show as the feisty Moroccan striker tumbled following a rough tackle from Hussain. Another stoppage in play ensued as players quarreled inside the Al Khor box in the 17th minute.   At the half-hour mark, Al Wakrah's Hamood Al-Yazidi hoodwinked his marker but his shot - fired at an acute angle - was well pouched by Al Khor keeper Baba Djibril.   With no let-up in rough tactics employed by both sides, Al Khor coach Jean Fernandez decided to substitute a limping Iajour in the 32nd minute, bringing out young Ali Abdulkarem to replace the Moroccan forward.   In the 36th minute, Al Wakrah's Abdulrahman Fakhroo produced a spectacular snap-header off a long-range free-kick but the ball smashed into the Al Khor crossbar with goalkeeper Djibril completely beaten.   With two minutes before the first-half whistle went off, Al Wakrah grabbed the lead.

Al Sadd continued their undefeated start to the QSL season with a narrow 1-0 win over a resilient Al Khor side on Friday evening. A second half strike from captain Xavi gave Al Sadd all three points. Credit to Al Khor they weathered the wave after wave of Al Sadd attack, eventually finding their stride. On the twenty eighth minute Khor registered their first chance of note with Brazilian star Madson firing a long distance shot which was well saved by Saad Al Sheeb in the Wolves goal. Sadd ramped up the pressure heading into the break, and on a rare foray forward Sadd defender Pedro produced a scintillating shot that flew over the cross bar. Both sides headed off at half time honours even at 0-0, with Al Khor coach Jean Fernandez the happier of the two managers. The Wolves immediately grew in confidence and could of doubled their lead minutes later had Bagdad Bounjah’s flying header from a Xavi corner hit the target.

Muaither grabbed their third straight victory of the season on Friday evening with a narrow 1-0 win over Al Khor. Phillipe Birol’s side put in a composed performance in defence, reducing the visitors to half chances for most of the game. On the stroke of half time, Muaither took the lead though Jordanian striker Mahmoud Za’tara and his goal was enough to give his side all three points. The opening exchanges lacked many clear chances with Muaither looking organised in defence restricting Al Khor to minimal chances, despite the visitors dominating possession. One source of concern for Phillipe Birrol was the departure of veteran midfielder Mohamed Yassr on the tenth minute, after a nasty clash of heads. Jean Fernandez’s side began to pressurise the QSL new boys, and started to dominate possession and chances. With thirty one minutes on the clock, Madson knocked in a dangerous free kick into the Muaither penalty box. The ball was promptly punched away by Stallions keeper Basil Zidan, which fell to Khor defender Musaab Abdulmajeed unfortunately his quick swivel and shot just flashed wide. Another mishap from Basil Zidan gifted Khor another golden opportunity on the forty first minute. Zedan was caught well off his line, and Madson produced a deft chipped shot which was cleared of the line by Muaither’s Brazilian defender Bruno Aguiar. Then against the run of play Muaither took a shock lead with seconds left to play in the first half. Stallions Captain Alain Dioko took advantage of a headed back pass and rounded Khor keeper Papa Djibril, Dioko then passed to strike partner Mahmoud Za'tara who slid in to score his second goal of the season, giving Phillipe Birol’s men a vital lead going into the break. Khor upped the ante in the second half in their search for an equaliser, however where reduced to half chances again by the home side. Khor’s diminutive midfielder Madson cut a frustrated figure in attack. However Muaither remained resolute through out the second half with Brazilian defender Bruno Aguiar looking impressive for the Stallions. Khor’s first real chance of the second half came with seventy minutes on the clock. The ball was swept to Moroccan attacker Mouchine Iajour, who ran at the Muaither defence. His blasted shot however was gratefully picked up by Basel Zidan. With Khor pushing for a equaliser Muaither had a fine chance to double their lead with ten minutes left to play. Alain Dioko found himself one on one with the keeper on the right wing, unfortunately his cross to Ayoub Ouadrassi was intercepted by Khor defender Musaab Abdulmajeed. With just minutes left substitute Hamad Mansor put through Alain Dioko one on one with Khor keeper Papa Djibril. However the Stallions captain lacked the composure in front of goal, with his shot drawing a good save from Djibril. Despite the late Al Khor onslaught, Muaither held out for their third straight win of the QSL season and pushed themselves up out of the relegation zone.

Al Khor got off to the unluckiest of starts, gifting Lekhwiya the lead after just 11 minutes through an own goal. South Korean international Nam Tae-hee made a darting run towards the 18 yards box before passing to Ali Afif who whipped a dangerous cross into Al Khor’s six yard box from the right wing. Seeing that Lekhwiya’s Youssef El-Arabi was approaching the back post, Al Khor’s number 23, Welinton Souza , attempted a sliding clearance but instead stabbed the ball into the back of his own net to hand Lekhwiya an easy 1-0 lead. Al Khor stepped up the pace in the search for an equaliser which they nearly got after 30 minutes of play after Brazilian import, Madison, drew a fine fingertip save from Lekhwiya’s goalkeeper, Amine Lecomte. After picking up the ball 35 yards out, Madison ran at Lekhwiya’s Chico Flores before unleashing a low, hard shot which left Lecomte at full stretch to his right to tip it past the post. Al Khor continued with the pressure though and just minutes later got the equaliser they had been looking for. Madison struck a beautiful cross from a free kick 35 yards out which found the head of Al Khor’s big number 5, Sultan Al Enezi, who managed to get in front of Chico Flores and head home to make it 1-1. Moaaz Ali Abdalla should have given Lekhwiya a 2-1 lead going into the break after a fine cross found him with acres of space in the six yard box. Despite a huge leap to meet the ball with his head, the man in red missed the ball and it went out for a goal kick. 1-1 at the half-time whistle. Lekhwiya managed to find the net first in the second half, taking the lead again on the 57th minute thanks to a close range goal from Qatari international, Ali Afif. Youssef El-Arabi managed to set Afif up with a clever chest controlled lay off after a looping cross drifted into the six yard box. Afif hit it first time and left Baba Djibril with no chance. Both teams continued to create chances, with Lecomte pulling off a fine reflex save to deny a Mouhssine Iajour’s freekick from 25 yards out, and Lekhwiya’s number 19, Moaaz Ali again finding himself with space in Al Khor's six yard box but again failing to test the goalkeeper with his headed effort. Al Khor secured a well-deserved point on the 73rd minute when the referee deemed Lecomte had brought down number 91, Ali Abdulkarem, in the box. Maddison stepped up and converted the penalty to make it 2-2 with a super cool finish, stuttering his run and sending Lecomte the wrong way.
