Al Duhail vs Tunisia friendly on 7th Jan


QNB Stars League leaders Al Duhail will host a friendly against Tunisia on Sunday, 7th January.

The Tunisian national team, which has qualified for this year’s World Cup in Russia, is currently having a training camp in Doha.

The match is part of Al Duhail’s preparations for the second phase of QNB Stars League, which begins on 11th January. The Red Knights will travel to Qatar SC for their opener on 13th January.

Al Duhail are leading the standings with 29 points. They stayed unbeaten in the first phase, the only team to do so, by registering nine victories and two draws.

The game against Tunisia must be a good exposure to Al Duhail, coached by Algerian Djamel Belmadi, ahead of the remaining part of the season.

Meanwhile, Al Duhail’s preparations are going full steam ahead. Players who represented Qatar at the Gulf Cup in Kuwait returned to the squad, while they are missing the services of those doing duty for the Qatar Olympic team at the forthcoming AFC Under-23 Championship in China.
