Al Sadd win Amir Cup final for 17th time at new Qatar 2022 venue

Al Sadd won Friday the 2020 Amir Cup after defeating Al Arabi 2-1 in the final. The match was played at the Ahmed bin Ali stadium, the fourth stadium of the World Cup 2022, which was inaugurated on Friday.

The tense clash played under lights was watched by the Amir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and FIFA President Gianni Infantino. 

The Amir on Friday was welcomed to the brand new venue by Special Representative H H Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani moments before the start of the exciting final that was also watched by AFC President Salman bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa and chief of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) Sheikh Ahmed Al Fahad Al Ahmed Al Sabah. 

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin and QFA President Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Thani were also present.

 

Feared Algerian striker Baghdad Bounedjah (4 and 45) struck two goals as Al Sadd - coached by Xavi Hernendaz - delivered a memorable performance against a spirited Al Arabi side. 

Iceland's central midfielder Aron Gunnarsson (23) scored the only goal for Al Arabi coached by Heimir Hallgrímsson.
