Al Wakrah had done well last season by finishing in the sixth position.
On the other hand, Al Arabi, coached by Icelander Heimir Hallgrimsson, jumped from 11th to seventh in the table with four points after beating Umm Salal 2-1 by a last-gasp goal in Week 4. It was also their first victory in this season’s league competition.
After being held 2-2 by Al Khor in Week 1, The Dream Team had lost 0-2 to Al Ahli and 1-2 to Al Gharafa.
