Al Duhail Head Coach Hernan Crespo stressed on the importance of the team’s match versus Al Arabi tomorrow evening, and Crespo, who spoke at the pre-match press conference that took place at 6 pm today in the evening in the club’s press conference hall, said: We know very well the importance of this match, but it is more important for Al Arabi, who are striving hard to reduce the points difference. For us, it is an opportunity to increase the gab and the difference between us and our direct contender.
Crespo said: Tomorrow’s match can be considered a six-point match, because winning means increasing our balance by 3 points and deducting 3 points from Al Arabi, and we know that the match won’t be easy.
And about the pressure of the matches that the team will face in the coming period, the coach said: I do not consider the pressure of the matches a negative aspect for us, but rather it is positive because we compete in all tournaments, and when I signed my contract with the club, it was to be with the team in the finals, as the team reached the final of the Qatar Cup and the semifinal round of the AFC Champions League 2022, we are competing for the league title, and ahead of us is the Amir Cup.
Regarding the missing players, Crespo said: I will speak with the team doctor to find out the status of the players who are ready to play this match, as well as the injured players.
