AL SADD EDGE AL KHOR IN QATAR STARS LEAGUE

Doha, – Al Sadd’s undefeated start to the Qatar Stars League season continued on Friday evening with a narrow 1-0 win over Al Khor in game week 9 of the competition.

Al Khor, on the other hand, lost their fifth game of the season and remained tenth on 8 points.

Game week 9 concludes on Sunday when Al Gharafa take on Al Rayyan at Jassim bin Thani Stadium.
