Al Sadd and Al Wakrah will meet at the Khalifa International Stadium on Saturday, September 2, 2023, at 8.15pm in Week 3 of the 2023-2024 season Expo Stars League.
Each team seeks to win and collect the maximum points in this game, which is expected to witness great excitement on both sides.
Al Sadd, Al Duhail and Al Rayyan are the teams with maximum number of points (six), with each of them having perfect starts to the season. Al Sadd won their first two matches, against Umm Salal (3-1) and Al Ahli (4-2).
Al Wakrah are currently fourth in the standings with four points after winning the opening match of the season against Muaither 3-0 and drawing 2-2 with Al Shamal in last week’s fixture.
The upcoming match presents a significant opportunity for both Al Sadd and Al Wakrah prior to the break in the league. Al Sadd aim to maintain their lead by continuing their winning streak, while Al Wakrah endeavour to present their best performance against the highly-motivated Al Sadd team in order to secure points and achieve a positive outcome.
The matches between these two teams have always been characterized by intense competition and excitement, and all the necessary elements are in place for a strong match. It is difficult to predict which team will emerge victorious.
The Al Sadd ranks may be without the duo of Musaab Khedir and Pedro Miguel, while Baghdad Bounedjah and Ali Asad may join the team after recovering from injuries. However, defender Ahmed Suhail will be absent due to his red card in the last match against Al Ahli.
On the other hand, Al Wakrah rely on a number of exceptional players, including Mohamed Benyettou, Jacinto Dala, Lucas Mendes, Khaled Munir, Hamdi Fathy and others.
