Doha: Huseein Amotta is convinced Al Sadd will face one of the hardest games of the Qatar Stars League season as they look to get their title defence back on track.
The defending champions play Eljaish today, who are looking to stop the rot after six successive defeats.
They have a new coach in Nabil Maaloul to help them do that – and Moroccan coach Amotta has warned his players to be at their best.
“This will be one of the hardest games we will play because they are such a good side, regardless of their recent results. “Just because El Jaish have lost games does not mean they are weak; it just means the league is strong,” said Amotta on the eve of the match.
