- Updated: February 19, 2020
The Qatar Football Association (QFA) has announced the schedule for the Amir Cup Quarter-Finals on Sunday. The matches will be played on four back to back days in four different venues.
On March 11, Al Arabi will face Al Ahli in the Amir Cup Quarterfinals at the Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium. It is the home ground to the Al Duhail Club. On March 12, Al Rayyan will take on Al Markhiya at Jassim bin Hamad Stadium, home ground of Al Sadd Club. March 13, the Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium will host the match between Al Sadd and Al Wakrah. March 14, Al Duhail will take on Al Sailiyah at Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium.
Seven first division teams and one-second division teams will be participating in the Amir Cup Quarter-Finals as well. Second division club Al Markhiya made a huge upset on this year’s Amir Cup when they beat Al Gharafa 1-0 to make it to the last eight stage of the tournament.
Former champions Al Rayyan who are looking for their maiden title of the season have avoided facing Al Sadd and Al Duhail in the league phase. They have found a favorable draft heading into the Amir Cup Quarter-Finals.
In the build-up to the Amir Cup Quarter-Finals Al Sadd thrashed Al Kharaitiyat 3-1, while Al Wakrah edged Al Shahania 10-9 in sudden death to progress further. Al Duhail beat second division side Muaither SC 4-0, while Al Sailiya defeated Umm Salal 2-1 to become the fourth and final team to qualify for the quarter-finals.
