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.
