Ghana captain Andre Ayew made his competitive debut for Qatari club Al Sadd on Sunday two months after he joined them on a free transfer.
Ayew's debut ended in victory as Al Sadd beat Al Sailiya 2-0 in their first match of the season.
The former Swansea man lasted the entire duration for Xavi's side at the Thani Bin Jassim Stadium.
On 17 minutes Ayew drilled a low powerful shot that got deflected by Al Sailiya's Magdi Siddiq, but the goalkeeper parried the ball above the crossbar with a high jump as he fell backwards.
Al Sadd opened the scoring when unmarked Boualem Khoukhi deflected a low cross from Bounedjah into the Al Sailiya net.
Exactly 10 minutes later, Bounedjah found Rodrigo Tabata with a low cross from the edge of the box.
Tabata anticipated the pass well and flicked the ball into the net with ease on first touch.
