Al Arabi held, Al Siliya gain momentum
Former Qatar League leaders Al Arabi were held to a late 1-1 draw with Qatar SC tonight. Al Arabi opened the scoring through Salman Isa in the 23rd minute. However, Qatar SC secured a point from the game just moments before the whistle when Ivory Coast striker Dibi Lacina snatched an equaliser.
Al Siliya earned their second win this season as they claimed a 3-2 win against Al Khor. Burkina Faso striker Moumoni Dagano gave the lead to Al Siliya with a 32nd-minute penalty but Al Khor levelled matters two minutes later through their Iraqi defender Salam Shaker. Bahrain international midfielder Faouzi Aiash restored Al Siliya's advantage after 56 minutes before Mohamad Yaser equalised again for Al Khor after 66 minutes. Dagano sealed the win for Al Siliya with 21 minutes remaining.
