Qatar Stars League: Al Jaish Moves to Third with Comeback Win

Doha, – Al Jaish SC players showed today strong character, coming back from one goal down to beat Muaither 2-1 in the 23rd round of Qatar Stars League.

All three goals came in the second half. Ayoub Ouadrassi opened the scoring in the 50th minute, courtesy of a penalty kick. Muaither couldn’t hold on to the lead for more than four minutes, when Sardor Rashidov equalized for Al Jaish. From that point on, Muaither tried to stay compact in defense to hold on to the point. They looked as though they would get what they wanted, if it weren’t for Seydou Keita’s header in the 80th minute.

The win took Al Jaish 45 points. They are now third one point ahead of Al Rayyan, although the latter has a game in hand. Meanwhile Muaither are in 13th place with 16 points and have a real relegation battle on their hands. (QNA)
