Xavi's Al Sadd recover from early setback to beat Umm Salal 2-1 in Qatar Stars League

15   //   

Al Sadd moved into third place in the Qatar Stars League on Friday when they came from behind to defeat Umm Salal 2-1.

Some slack defending allowed Mahmoud Al Mawas to wriggle to the bye-line and set up Yannick Sagbo to give Umm Salal an early lead.

A neat first-time finish from Akram Afif made it all square after 19 minutes - the winner came from the penalty spot following a foul on Baghdad Bounedjah.

Bounedjah got up to score from the spot and maintain Al Sadd's 100 per cent start to the season.
