The 2020-21 edition of the Qatar Stars League is back in action this weekend as Al Sadd host a struggling Al Khor outfit at the Jassim bin Hamad Stadium in Doha. Al Sadd have shown tremendous improvement over the past year under Xavi and are the favourites to win this game.

Al Khor have been inconsistent this season and are yet to win a game in the Qatar Stars League. The away side suffered a 1-0 defeat against league-leaders Al Ahli in their previous game and will want to prove a point this weekend.

Al Sadd, on the other hand, have won both their matches in the league so far, scoring an incredible 10 goals in the process. Xavi has built an excellent attacking team at Al Sadd and the home side can join Al Ahli at the top of the table with a victory in this game.


Al Sadd vs Al Khor Head-to-Head

Al Sadd have an excellent record against Al Khor and have won 22 games out of a total of 34 matches played between the two sides. Al Khor have managed only three victories against Al Sadd and will need a miracle to come away with all three points from this fixture.

The previous meeting between these two sides resulted in a 2-1 victory for Al Sadd. Akram Afif scored a late winner on the day and is set to feature for Xavi's side this weekend.
