Doha: A double strike by Uzbekistan striker Temurkhuja Abdukholiqov helped Al Sailiya beat Al Ahli 3-0 in the 21st round match at the QNB Stars League on Saturday.
Abdukholiqov scored in the 11th and 30th minutes while Wagner Ribeiro, who scored his 12th goal in the competition, added the second (24’) to end the week on sixth place with 28 points.
Ahli, who are definitely in their best form this season, remained eighth with 22 points.
“We didn’t play well. We still are hoping to target sixth position, but for that we need to play well in the remaining rounds,” said Al Ahli coach George Jorge.
