Al Kharaitiyat beat Al Khor 2-1 in Week 5 of the 2020-21 season QNB Stars League at the Al Khor Stadium on Monday.
Mohammed Osman (45+2) and Rachid Tiberkanine (84th minute) scored for Al Kharaitiyat. New recruit Giannis Fetfatzidis found the target for Al Khor in the 55th minute.
Promoted side Al Kharaitiyat raised their points to six with their second victory, their first being against Qatar SC in Week 2.
Al Khor, who remained on three points, could not repeat their performance that helped them hold formidable Al Sadd goalless on their home turf a week ago.
Just when it looked like the first half would end goalless, came Al Kharaitiyat’s goal through Osman, whose snap shot beat Al Khor goalkeeper Baba Djibril as his shot took a deflection off Anas Ahmed and into the goal.
Al Kharaitiyat’s Evans Mensah twice and Tiberkanine once were off-target in the first half, while the efforts of Al Khor’s Helal Mohammed, Leonardo de Souza and Giannis did not bear fruits.
Al Khor managed to equalise 10 minutes into the second half as Giannis was set up with a header by Leonardo with a header following a long ball.
Mensah continued his impressive ways even as Tiberkanine netted the winner towards the end after taking advantage of a loose ball. Osman played his part in the goal as the swift move was initiated by him.
