Doha, – Al Rayyan defeated Al Khor 4-1 at Al Sadd’s Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in the final week of the league.

Rodrigo Tabata continued his fine scoring form and scored a hat-trick to announce himself as the star of the match and one of the best performers this season. He scored the goals in the 18th, 79th and, 93rd minute. Koh Myong-jin scored Al Rayyan’s other goal in the 27th minute. Mouhcine Iajour scored Al Khor’s only goal of the match in the 25th minute.

The win means Al Rayyan finishes the season in third place with 51 points. They lost only five times this season and won three times as much. Meanwhile Al Khor end the season in 11th place with 29 points. They won six times this season, losing more than twice as much with 13.

The team’s top goal scorer Tabata found the back of the net in the 18th minute when Al Rayyan were rightfully awarded a penalty. Despite the goalkeeper getting a hand on it, the power was too much for him and it smashed into the bottom left hand corner of the goal to give the Lions the lead.

A mistake from Al Rayyan’s goalkeeper gifted Al Khor a way back into the game when he dropped the ball into Iajour’s path, who made no mistake for his part. It didn’t take long however for Al Rayyan to regain the lead. It was only two minutes later that Jin dispatched a nicely-thread ball home. Al Khor collapsed after conceding the second goal and Tabata made the most of it to complete his hat-trick. (QNA)
