Juanma: Al-Ahli will be a difficult opponent

Al-Sadd head coach Juanma Lillo spoke about the difficulty of the upcoming QNB Stars League Round 3 game against Al-Ahli, which will be played on Wednesday.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Juanma said: “All the matches are different and difficult. Al Ahli started the league really well and they will be a difficult opponent for us.”

About his side not making use of chances, the coach said: “To score is not easy, even if against ten players. Sometimes you make mistakes, or sometimes you are not accurate and due to these reasons, you’re not able to score.”

He added: “We expect that we can create similar opportunities to score in the next game and that we can make use of them. Hopefully we will get a good result, and it will be a boost for the youngsters that are playing now in the team.”
