AFC Cup: Kuwait’s Al Qadsia snatch away victory at Al Riffa of Bahrain

MANAMA Kuwaiti outfit Al Qadsia edged a 2 1 triumph over Bahrain’s Al Riffa in the AFC Cup, Asia’s second tier club competition.

Kuwait internationals, Sultan Al Enezi and Saif Al Hashan, both scored for the away side in the 25th and 74th minutes respectively at Bahrain National Stadium.

The hosts attempted a comeback nine minutes before the end of the match through Mohammad Jasim but were left empty handed in the two sides’ initial Group C encounter.

The result sees the Kuwaiti side move three points to the top of the group with Omani side Dhofar, who earlier beat Jordan’s Al Jazeera, trailing on goal difference.
