17:15 kick-off at Al Arabi Stadium
Al Khor face Al Arabi in Week 9 of the 2021-2022 season QNB Stars League. The kick-off is at 17:15 at the Al Arabi Stadium on Thursday, 4th November, 2021.
Al Khor badly need points to boost morale themselves. Their situation worsened further following their 0-4 loss to promoted Al Shamal in the last round. They now occupy the bottom position in the table.
Al Khor, Umm Salal and Al Ahli are the only teams yet to register a victory in this season’s league competition.
The Knights, under German Winfried Schafer, have only four points from as many draws while they suffered four defeats as well. Their goal difference is -13 (seven goals for and 20 against).
On the other hand, Al Arabi are on a high, having beaten Al Rayyan 2-1 in the last round, in a match involving perhaps the most passionate fans in Qatar.
The Dream Team, coached by Younes Ali, now have 16 points (five wins, one draw and two defeats) and have a goal difference of +2 (11 goals for and nine against).
Al Arabi will rely much on their attacking trio of Yousef Msakni, Farshid Esmaeli and Aaron Boupendza.
