The QNB Stars League Week 6 fixtures on Thursday, 20th September, are Qatar SC vs Al Khor (17:55) at Qatar SC Stadium and Al Shahania vs Al Arabi (20:05) at Al Arabi Stadium.
Qatar SC vs Al Khor
Qatar SC have not won a game ever since they shocked Al Gharafa in Week 1. Last week, The Kings had lost 2-3 to promoted side Al Shahania.
The latest defeat also saw coach Abdulla Mubarak being fired and Qatar SC gave charge to their Under-23 coach Yousef Faraj Al Noobi.
Qatar SC will be keen to make up for the lost ground with a win over Al Khor, who are also under new coach Omar Najhi following the dismissal of Tunisian Adel Sellimi.
Qatar SC are 10th and Al Khor 11th with three and one point respectively.
Al Khor’s only point came off their draw with Al Shahania in Week 3.
Al Shahania vs Al Arabi
Both teams are coming off contrasting backgrounds. While Al Shahania downed Qatar SC, Al Arabi lost 0-1 to Al Rayyan that saw their two-game winning run come to an end.
In the process, Al Arabi slipped one position in the table to fifth. Al Shahania stayed eighth and now have seven points, two less than Al Arabi.
Al Arabi have improved much ever since their 1-10 defeat at the hands of Al Sadd in Week 2.
Al Shahania, who do not have any big names in their ranks, have also made steady progress.
