Ghana captain, Andre Ayew, netted his second goal of the season for Al Sadd, who continued their strong start with an impressive 4-2 win over Al-Rayyan SC.

Al Sadd were too strong for their opponents and looked to have secured the three points before the 24th-minute mark. They scored three unanswered goals within that period, with Ayew among the scorers.

Ayew skipped a couple of challenges before slotting the ball home from close range for Al Sadd’s third after Hassan Al-Haydos, Baghdad Bounedjah, had found the net.

The home side tried to stage a comeback with two goals in the space of four minutes, but Al Sadd ended their hopes with a fourth goal by Akram Afif.

Ayew’s goal comes less than a week after netting his debut for the Qatari giants.

The 31-year-old joined the club, managed by Barcelona legend Xavi, in July and is fast becoming fans favourite.
