Al Qadsia v Al Kuwait 0-1 (Fahad Al Enazi) Match Report
Al Fahaeel v Al Sahel 1-1 (Mario Rafael; Abl Aziz Al Naji)
Kazma v Yarmouk 2-1 (Tareq Alshamery, Patrick Fabiano; Mohand Ansari)
Al Jahra v Al Arabi 0-1 (Fahd Alrashedy)

All in all it was a pretty good weekend for Al Arabi. They went into the round of games in top spot but knowing there were two clubs breathing down their necks. Al Kuwait's victory over Al Qadsia means there is a two horse race for the Premier League and the leaders may feel they have the wind in their sails with two home games, especially as their final game of the season is against whipping bioys Al Tadhamon who have been shipping goals at an average three a game.

However Al Kuwait are no mugs. Teams that go on nine straight win streaks rarely are; especially when that run includes a success over their title rivals and their supporters will point to the fact their final two games are against sides comfortably ensconced in mid-table (Yarmouk and A Sulaibhikat). They are also joint top scorers in the league, have the best defence and are unbeaten.

Al Kuwait do though have an important AFC Cup tie this week away to Al Nejmeh in Lebanon while their rivals can sit at home.Al Arabi have the fate of the title in their hands and it could be theirs when they go up against Al Qadsia next Monday.

It is promising to be an exciting climax to the season!
