Al Duhail goalkeeper Khalifa Abubakr, who missed their 6-0 victory over Qatar SC in Week 12 of the QNB Stars League because of suspension, is all set for a return.
Khalifa had received a red card during their Week 11 game against Al Sailiya before the break and Amin Lecomte, who came back from Al Khor after a loan move, guarded their citadel against Qatar SC on Saturday.
Al Duhail’s Algerian coach Djamel Belmadi gave a day’s rest to the players and they will resume training on Monday ahead of their Week 13 away fixture at Al Arabi.
All players, except those doing duty for Qatar at the ongoing Asian Under-23 Championship in China, will be seen in practice.
Al Duhail, who lead the QNB Stars League standings with 32 points, had defeated Al Arabi 2-0 in the first phase.
