Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga was on target when Al Duhail defeated Al Arabi in the Qatar Stars League today.
Olunga scored in the 3-0 win with his 75th minute goal after Abdullah Al-Sulati and a header from Nam Tae-hee on 52 minutes had put the Red Knights on cruise control.
Olunga, who won the top scorer’s accolade last season on 22 goals in the 12-team league, sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to the delight of head coach Hernan Crespo
The Harambee Stars captain had netted just once this season before wrapping up the scores against Al Arabi who stay on top with 12 points after the first five rounds on matches.
Al Wakrah occupy second place on 11 points followed by Al Duhail on 10 points.
Al Duhail’s win was their 18th against Al Arabi in 25 matches. They have lost just two times against Al Arabi since the 2010-2011 season.
Olunga’s other goal this season came in the 4-2 home loss at the hands of Al Wakrah on August 3.
Al Duhail’s next league assignment is against Qatar SC on September 7
