Amir Cup 2023: Al Sadd Coach Seeks to Overcome Al Shahania to Reach Final

Al Sadd Coach Juan Manuel Lillo warned against overconfidence before the team’s match against Al Shahania to be played at Abdullah bin Khalifa Stadium tomorrow, in the semi-finals of the fifty-first edition of the Amir Cup 2023.

At a press conference held today, the coach said that they aim to reach the final match of the tournament with much importance in Qatari football, adding that they must not anticipate events and think about how to overcome Al Shahania because thinking about the title means underestimating the opponent and not respecting it enough.

He added that most of their focus will be on tomorrow’s match in order to present a decent level and meet their aspirations.

Second Division side Al Shahania had stunned Al Gharafa 4-3 on penalties to advance to the semi-finals of the Amir Cup. Both the teams were locked 3-3 in regulation time.
