Al Rayyan and Al Khor coaches stressed the importance of achieving the three points in their 2021-2022 season QNB Stars League Week 15 match on Tuesday.

Speaking to the media ahead of Al Khor match, Al Rayyan coach Laurent Blanc said, "We had more time to prepare for Al Khor in order to achieve more victories after the win over Al Wakrah in Week 13. We benefited from the postponement of our match against Al Sadd in Week 14 in terms of preparations.

"We need to win because we need some points. I think the players have done a good job so far and are ready for this match.

"It was a special match (against Al Wakrah). We played 42 minutes and Ousmane Coulibaly was injured. I wish him a speedy recovery and also wish to see him again on the field. It was difficult to play that match in two parts, but I think my team was good. We played as a team and this is important for the future. The players can play that way, but we have to be better and stronger, and we need to work because we have a lot to do.

"Weve regained the services of some players while losing those of others. Great work awaits us, especially during the months of February, March and April due to the tournaments, where we need to participate," said Blanc.
Meanwhile, Al Khor coach Andre Lima said, "We know very well that every point is very important at this time and the more points we get, the greater our chance to improve our position in the table.

"Al Rayyan remain a strong team with distinguished players and we must focus on facing them.

"Our preparations were excellent and the players have the motivation to do the best. It was not the result we hoped for in the last match against Al Wakrah, but we have closed that chapter and started preparing well for the match against Al Rayyan.

"I am very happy with the new contracts for our team in the winter transfer window and I am fully confident that they will be great additions to the team and help team-mates produce positive results in the upcoming rounds," said Lima.
