Al-Markhiya and Al-Rayyan teams meet today at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium in Al-Duhail Club, at exactly five o’clock in the evening. The match will be very important for the two teams, as Al Rayyan has no alternative but to win, as it is in tenth place with 13 points. Al-Markhiya is in eighth place with 18 points, and it also wants to strengthen its position in the ranking table and maintain its presence in the warm region. The match seems very important to the coaches of the two teams, Abdullah Mubarak, the coach of Al-Markhiya, and Nicholas Cordova, the coach of Al-Rayyan. Al-Rayyan came from a draw against Al-Wakra with a goal for each of them, while Al-Markhiya scored a victory over Al-Sailiya with three goals to one, in the postponed matches from the tenth week. Cordova: We will work to get more points Al Rayyan coach Nicholas Cordova stressed the importance of meeting Al Markhiya, and said during the press conference: We know that Al Markhiya is a good team, especially on the defensive side, and strong on the physical side, and they play with five players in the defense line, so it is a strong defensive team. It is a match between two teams in the last third of the standings, and it is very important that we achieve the three points. He added: The competitor is one of the teams that is characterized by harmony, and we are developing from one match to another, and our match against Al-Wakra was good, and it is very important that we achieve the three points and advance in the standings. And he continued, saying: The league is not easy, and we advanced two places in the standings table, and in the upcoming matches we will work to get more points, and advance to a better position than the current position. Abdullah Mubarak: We have the motivation to win match points Abdullah Mubarak, the coach of Al-Markhiya, confirmed that his team’s preparations for the match with Al-Rayyan are at a maximum level of readiness, and with high morale, after the team’s victory over Al-Sailiya in the previous match postponed from the tenth round. He said in the press conference: Al-Rayyan is a team that is thirsty for victory after its exit from the Emir Cup, as it will enter the match strongly, indicating that Al-Markhiya will play the match while it is at the peak of its physical, technical and tactical readiness. He continued, saying: We have turned the page on the Al-Sailiya match, and everyone is focused on meeting Al-Rayyan, who will fight the confrontation with full force, and his current position in the teams ranking list does not represent the good level he is presenting. He added: Just as Al Rayyan will enter the match to earn match points, we also have the same motivation.
