Qadsia, Al Ahli Close In On Titles

Today sees Al Ahli host Al Ain in the Arabbian Gulf League. Victory for the home team, who boast a 100% record at Rashid Stadium, would put them six points clear of Al Ain with three games remaining. One hand on the title? It would appear so.

In Kuwait Qadsia play Kuwait SC on Saturday. Three draws in their last four games have ended Kuwait SC's bid to regain the Premier League and with Al Salmiya having the kind of chance only the permanently deluded, or Arsene Wenger, can believe in Qadsia should sew up the title this weekend.

Thirteen straight wins and with a goal difference more than double the side from the coast Qadsia will surely be celebrating their 17th Premier League and their first since 2013/2014.

As if that kind of background wasnt enough to tempt the taste buds what about seeing two of the finest players in the Gulf up close and personal. I am of course talking about Al Ain's Omar Abdulrahman and Bader Al Mutawa. If they played in England the media would be creaming themselves week in, week out. Some of the stuff Mutawa was outrageous, he just caresses the ball and the ball loves it so much it doesn't want to leave his tender touches.

Yep, if Sky were covering these games this weekend you can just imagine how they would be hyping the games. Only in this case the hype would be true.

Two great adverts for football in the Gulf and I am looking forward to seeing both of them!
