The Al-Sadd football first team concluded the 2018-19 QNB Stars League campaign with a 6-1 win over Umm Salal in the 22nd and final round game, which was played at the Jassim bin Hamad Stadium on Saturday.

The result means that Al-Sadd finish with a final points tally of 57, after 19 wins, three draws and a single defeat.

Akram Afif netted a brace for Al-Sadd, while Khoukhi Boualem, Hassan Al-Haydos, Hassan Ahmed and Ali Asad also got on the scoresheet. Yannick Sagbo scored the lone goal for Umm Salal.

After a calm start to the game, Boualem headed Al-Sadd in front after a free kick floated in by Afif in the 30th minute. Four minutes later, skipper Sagbo equalised for Umm Salal with a fierce low effort past Meshaal Barsham in the Al-Sadd goal.

Al-Sadd were then awarded a penalty following a handball which was confirmed by the VAR in the 41st minute. Al-Haydos stepped up and made no mistake from the spot to give the hosts the lead once again.

Hassan Ahmed marked his start with an acrobatic finish from close range to make it 3-1 in the 57th minute. Afif then scored Al-Sadd’s fourth with a quick reaction to slam in the rebound after substitute Baghdad Bounedjah’s initial shot was blocked.

In the 65th minute, Ali Asad got on the scoresheet with a drive into the top corner before Afif wrapped up the scoring with a calm finish in the 69th minute, that brought up a century of goals for Al-Sadd in this season.
