Umm Salal defeated Al Shamal 6-0 in Week 16 of the 2021-2022 season QNB Stars League at the Qatar SC Stadium on Sunday.
Ayman Abdennour (fourth minute), Ayman Hussein (26th and 61st minutes), Isael Barbosa (71st minute), Yassin Bakhit (75th minute) and Omar Yahya (86th minute) scored the goals.
Umm Salal raised their score to 25 points with their sixth victory from 16 matches, while Al Shamal stood on 13 points following their ninth defeat from 16 games.
Al Shamal had lost to reigning champions Al Sadd by a 1-5 margin in Week 15 and they are in trouble now.
On the other hand, Umm Salal, who were back on the winning path with their 3-1 victory over Al Gharafa in Week 15, are cruising along ever since former Qatar international midfielder Wesam Rizik took over their reins.
It may be recalled that Al Shamal and Umm Salal had played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg.
Umm Salal were a determined lot from the onset and they scored at will, especially in the second half.
The trio of Ayman Hussein, Barbosa and Bakhit proved quite a handful for the Al Shamal defence.
After taking the half-time break with a two-goal advantage, Umm Salal added a third past the hour mark and that forced the Al Shamal players to commit many mistakes. As a result, three more goals came and Umm Salal ran out easy winners.
