Al Arabi destroys Al Sadd 3-0 to lift first Amir Cup title in decades

Al Arabi secured its first Amir Cup title in decades on Friday evening after defeating rivals Al Sadd in a heated 3-0 final at Ahmed bin Ali Stadium.

With an attendance of 37,839, Ahmed bin Ali Stadium was filled with cheers as fans watched their teams battle it out on the pitch.

Despite having the upper hand in the first half and Al Arabi’s defence putting their bodies on the line, Al Sadd was still unable to break the 0-0 curse in the first 45 minutes.

Al Arabi suffered a setback at the end of a goalless first half with Youssef Msakni replaced due to an injury. After the break, Hamed Ismail stepped onto the pitch to take over from his colleague.

However, the intensity flared in the second half.

Just a few minutes into the second half, Omar Al Somh’s ball found the back of the net, catapulting Al Arabi to a breakthrough in the scores, landing a 1-0 for Fareeg Al-Ahlam or ‘The Dream Team’.

Qatar’s Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani was witnessed cheering alongside his brother Jassim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and FIFA President Gianni Infantino as Al Arabi took the lead.

With just moments on the clock, a fired up Al Arabi scored its second and third goals to secure its first victory at the Amir Cup final in decades.

Fans across the stadium were sent into frenzy as Al Arabi defeated 18 time Amir Cup winner and rival Al Sadd, especially after it lost the final to the rival team in 2020.
