Doha: Al Sadd and Al Wakrah will clash in a mouth-watering Group A match today, with both teams seeking points after contrasting starts at the Ooredoo Cup last week.
While Al Sadd will enter the Saoud Bin Abdulrahman Stadium after thrashing two-time defending champions Al Sailiya 4-0 in their opening match, Al Wakrah will look to bounce back after being shocked by Qatar SC in the first round.
Al Wakrah had defeated Al Sadd 2-1 when the two sides last met at a QNB Stars League (QSL) match earlier this month. However, Al Sadd will look to continue their winning momentum as they bid to regain the Ooredoo Cup title.
Meanwhile, Qatar SC and Umm Salal will aim for second consecutive win when they face off at the Hamad Bin Khalifa Stadium, today.
