Al Ahli Doha vs Lekhwiya by Alexis1016
Lekhwiya is the defending champion and they have one of the strongest squad from QSL. Anyway, their defense is not so good this season as was in the last campaign under former Swansea manager, Michael Laudrup. They have conceded already 17 goals this season. Lekhwiya failed to keep a clean sheet in the last 8 games despite not all their opponents were strong. For example they have conceded two goals from inferior sides like Al Khor and Al Wakrah. Anyway, the offensive power of Lekhwiya is really good because they have some great players in attack like Weiss, Nam Tae-Hee, Muntari and Msakni.
On the other hand we have the "home" side, (home side on the paper because in Qatar the home advantage doesn't really matter because the games are played on 4-5 stadiums. For example this round is hosted by 4 stadiums, most of them based in Doha or close to the capital. This game is hosted by the Lekhwiya stadium) Al Ahli, a team who had defensive problems in the last game after conceding two goals from PKs from the worst team in the league, Al Mesaimeer. If Al Ahli will continue to make again the same defensive mistakes I think they will have problems today. Anyway, up front they have a nice offensive trio with Meshaal Abdulla and Kabangu on the wings. The centre-forward is the Congolese Firmin Mubele. He wasn't clinical enough this season, but he's a player with qualities and I think the future he can score more goals. These players are able to score goals against Lekhwiya.
