Al Arabi coach Hatem Al Moaddeb spoke to the media ahead of their QNB Stars League Week 15 match against Umm Salal.
“After our victory over Al Kharaitiyat in Week 14, the mood in our team camp is upbeat as we head for the Umm Salal game before the QNB Stars League takes a long break.
“While underlining the fact that our players are staying confident, I must admit that Umm Salal are formidable competitors who have put up some incredible displays this season. Their performance against Al Ahli in the last round was an example.
“We have a lot of confidence in our players even when we lose. So how will it be after the win? The confidence will be greater. We are looking forward to entering the break in high spirit. It is possible if we come out with a positive result against Umm Salal.
“We need to keep performing well. We are optimistic and confident,” said Hatem.
