Al Duhail loses to Al Rayyan…

Our first team lost their match versus Al Rayyan in Round 19 of the Expo Stars League by two clean goals in the confrontation that brought together the two teams at Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium, and kicked-off at 09:30 in the evening today, leaving the team’s points frozen at 22 points.

The first half of the match ended in a goalless draw despite the clear advantage of the team that succeeded in imposing control over the match from its start thanks to the interconnectedness of the midfield and the offensive movements of the duo Ismail Mohamed and Isaac Lehadj and behind them Coutinho. However, Al Rayyan’s defense succeeded in repelling several attacks while the VAR referee overruled a goal that was scored by Michael Olunga.

In the second half, Al Duhail entered the field looking to decipher Al Rayyan’s net. On the other hand, Al Rayyan abandoned their defensive caution and began to create attacks, but the team’s defense succeeded in keeping the danger away from its goal until the 80th minute, in which Al Rayyan succeeded in scoring their first goal by the striker, Roger Guedes from a counterattack and shot from inside the penalty area.

Roger came back again and scored the second goal for his team, taking advantage of the mistaken pass and the ball reached the player who shot into the goal.
