Al Duhail coach Sabri Lamouchi spoke to the media ahead of their 2020-21 season QNB Stars League Week 11 match against Al Ahli.

“We won our last match against Al Khor, while Al Ahli are coming from a loss, and we have to rely on confidence and focus as the opponents will not present us any gift and we must achieve victory against them.

“Despite the importance of the match, it is not a six-point game, and our team has succeeded in winning two games in a row. Now, we are looking to continue achieving victories and good performance and working to improve the team’s ranking in the table.

“There has been a lot of talk about the records and players, but we are now focusing on the matches that await us and the records have not yet come. The team management knows what needs to be done and everything will happen in its time,” said Lamouchi.

Al Duhail goalkeeper Khalifa Abubaker said, “I have confidence in the team’s ability to achieve victory against Al Ahli. We have an important match and we must focus on implementing the plan that the technical staff will put in place in order to come out of the match with full points.

“We are able to win this match, and given the ranking table, we find that we are in a position that does not suit us, and we have to win and improve our position.”
