17:40 kick-off at Qatar SC Stadium
Al Gharafa face Qatar SC in Round 2 (Group B) of the 2021-2022 season Ooredoo Cup at the Qatar SC Stadium on Wednesday.
Al Arabi, Al Sailiya and Al Khor are the other teams in Group B of the tournament, which features 10 teams this time, five in each group.
This is Al Gharafa’s first match in the tournament. The Cheetahs, coached by Italian Andrea Stramaccioni, would hope they sustain the momentum, having been placed third in the 2021-2022 QNB Stars League despite losing 0-2 to Qatar SC in Week 5.
Stramaccioni & Co will be eager to turn the tables on Qatar SC, who are leading the group standings with three points. The Kings had defeated Al Khor 2-1 in the first round.
Qatar SC are on a high as they moved from basement to eighth position in the QNB Stars League following their victory over Al Gharafa under new coach Yousef Al Noobi, who has replaced Brazilian Ze Ricardo.
