Match Summary

11’ 0 – 1 [Fabio Cesar sent a pin-point cross from a free-kick in the left and Brazilian Afonso Alves (former Al Sadd player) met it with a powerful header to give Al Rayyan an early lead.]

34’ 1 – 1 [Maged Mohamed penetrated AL Rayyan’s defence from the left and passed the ball to his Brazilian teammate Leandro da Silva who easily finished from close range. His 17th goal this season.]

67’ 2 – 1 [Maged Mohamed headed home Nasser Nabil’s right flank cross to give Al Sadd the lead]

78’ Red Card [Al Sadd reduced to 10 men as experienced defender Abdullah Kone sent-off for a second bookable offence]

84’ 3 – 2 [Again Al Sadd took the lead, Nasser Nabil made a good run in the right flank and sent a cross into the area, and Mosaad Al Hamad was there to finish with a strong right foot shot]

87’ 3 – 3 [Heartbreak for Al Sadd, substitute Mohamed Kasula tried to clear Fabio Cesar’s cross, but instead headed the ball over his own keeper to level the score.

90+2’ 4 – 3 [Mohamed Abdul Rab sent a low cross from the left, Maged Mohamed popped up at the near post to finish cleverly, and Al Sadd keep their title hopes alive]
