Goals from Youssef Msakni (12') and Mehrdad Mohammadi (64' penalty) secured Al Arabi a 2-1 win over Al Rayyan in the second round of the QNB Stars League at the 80,000 seat Lusail Stadium which hosted its first match, on Thursday.

Ivorian Yohan Boli reduced the deficit, scoring Al Rayyan's only goal in the 78th minute of the match, played in front of over 20,000 spectators at the magnificent FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 final venue.

The Younes Ali-coached Dream Team, who finished fourth last season, raised their points tally to six after Thursday's win. Al Rayyan, coached by Nicolas Cordova, are winless after two rounds. 

Earlier, at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, Al Ahli and last year's runners-up Al Duhail shared points after drawing one-all. Nasser Al Yazidi (Al Duhail) and Hossein Kanaani (Al Ahli) scored the goals.
