Doha, Four time Qatar Stars League (QSL) champions Lekhwiya registered record 10-0 win over Al Shahania Wednesday evening in round thirteen of the QSL.
Four goals in the first half followed by six in the second, saw the Red Knights make light work of Jose Fernando's Oryxes. Lekhwiya ran rampant in the game which saw Yusef El Arabi grab a hat-trick along with braces for Moez Ali and Yusef Msakni.
Barely two minutes had passed and Djamel Belmadi's team had registered their first goal of the game. South Korean star Nam Tae Hee curled in a fine freekick which landed on the head of defender Chico Flores and promptly looped into the back of the net for the Spaniards first goal of the season.
Twenty minutes later and Lekhwiya doubled their advantage thanks to Yusef El Arabi, who notched his fifteenth goal of the season. Moez Ali squared the ball to the Moroccan striker who swept the ball into the back of the net. Four minutes later and Lekhwiya had a third from Yusef Msakni who registered his fourth goal of the season. A Nam Tae Hee corner was not dealt with properly by the Al Shahania defence and Msakni pounced to register his sides third in just under thirty minutes.
Lekhiwya where at their free flowing best and youngster Moez Ali added further to Al Shahania's misery picking up the fourth goal for his side on the 38th minute. Al Shahania's defence parted ways, and gave the Qatar international plenty of time and space to thump Lekhwiya's fourth first half goal, the game was fast turning into a rout for the Red Knights.
Al Shahania tried to steady the ship in the second half, but the goals still came for Lekhwiya. On the 64th minute Shahania keeper Khalifa Al Dossari was caught with the ball which was promptly passed to Yusef El Arabi who grabbed his sixteenth and possibly easiest goal of the season.
It was one way traffic and on the 70th minute Lekhiwya scored a sixth, with Yusef Msakni grabbing his second of the night. A flighted cross from Karim Boudiaf found Msakni along with three other unmarked Lekwiya players at the back post and the Tunisian international slid in for yet another goal. Moez Ali grabbed his brace moments later as Lekhwiya notched their seventh of the game, tapping in from close range from a Yusef El Arabi cross.
Two goals of quality in two minutes further cemented Lekhwiya's dominance. The goal of the tie came on the 78th minute after a slick passing move between Msakni and Nam Tae Hee ended up with the South Korean smashing in from close range following a neat back heel from Msakni. Whilst substitute Ali Afif produced a bycycle kick to notch his sides ninth of the game moments later.
With grim inevitability, Lekhwiya notched a tenth of the tie, and a QSL record in the process. Yusef El Arabi hit a shot from outside the box which flashed past Khalifa Al Dossari with 83 minutes on the clock. Mercifully Lekhwiya didn't add any more to their haul, and the referee blew up to put an end to this a game to forget for Al Shahania.
