Lekhwiya ease past Al Fateh in AFC Champions League
Current QSL champions Lekhwiya ended their AFC Champions League group campaign on a high, comfortably defeating Saudi Arabian side Al Fateh 4-1 to ensure top spot in group B. All four of Lekhwiya’s goals came in the first half, as they raced into the lead. Club captain Mohammed Mussa grabbed the opener on the ninth minute, before goals from Yusef Msakni, Ali Afif and Spanish central defender Chico Flores confirmed all three points for Djamel Belmadi’s men. The comfortable victory ensures that Lekhwiya end the group stage undefeated, and finishing in top-spot means that they have set up a round sixteen tie against Iranian side Persepolis, who finished in second place in group D.
