Doha, – Al Shahania relegated Friday from Qatar Stars League, after it drew 1-1 with Al Khor in the penultimate round of Qatar Stars League.

Saoud Mohamed opened the scoring in the 16th minute, before Mouhssin lajour equalized for Al Khor in the 34th minute. The draw meant Al Khor earns their 25th point, they are in 11th place. It was also the seventh time this season that Al Khor draws a match. Meanwhile Al Shahaniya are 12th with 21 points. They desperately needed the win today if they were to stand any chance of avoiding relegation.

The match saw little chances throughout. The first half saw Al Khor press Al Shahania, but it was the latter that grabbed the first goal. After the equalizer, the game evened out even in terms of possession and the scrappy affair failed to yield any dangerous chances. In the second half, Al Khor grew more dominant but again without threatening to take the lead. (QNA)
