Al-Wehdat took revenge on its Qatari rival Al-Sadd after defeating it 3-1 today, Tuesday, in the second leg of the group stage in the Asian Football Champions League, in a match held at Prince Muhammad Bin Fahd Stadium in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, which hosts the fifth group competitions.
Al-Wehdat had lost 5-2 in the first leg last Friday, but today it appeared at a different level and performed an exemplary performance, directed by scoring the three goals against the Al-Sadd team, which is the strongest team in the Qatari league currently and is filled with foreign professionals and leads the local league standings with 62 points, a big difference from its competitor Al Duhail has 47 points.
Al-Wehdat revived his hopes of qualifying for the second round after raising his score to four points, equal with Al-Sadd and Nasaf of Uzbekistan, before facing him with the Saudi leader, Al-Faisaly, later today.
Wehdat scored the three goals, Muhammad Al-Damiri, Khaled Essam and Ahmed Samir in the 48th, 60th and 75th minutes, while Rodrigo Tabata, 41, scored Al Sadd’s goal in the 54th minute.
