Al Ahli’s Chikhaoui to be back in action


Al Ahli will get back the services of injured attacking midfielder Yassine Chikhaoui when they face Umm Salal in Week 14 of the QNB Stars League on Saturday.

The Tunisian had missed their last-round match with Al Khor, which ended in a 2-2 draw, due to muscle cramp.

Chikhaoui had played an influential role and scored Al Ahli’s only goal even though they lost to Al Gharafa 1-2 in Week 12.

Meanwhile, The Brigadiers will sorely miss striker Mohammed Muntari as he has yet to recover from an injury.

Al Ahli are seventh on 15 points.

Umm Salal had beaten Al Ahli 2-0 in the first phase.
