Kassem Zein – Al Nasr
[Al Shabab 0-1 Al Nasr]
A new cleansheet for Kassem Zein and Al Nasr ! In 15 games, Al Nasr won 1-0 seven times !

[Budaiya 1-1 Busaiteen]
Three draws in seven games for Budaiya in which they only conceded three goals. Yahya El Hindi’s asset is undeniable.

[Al Ahli 1-3 Riffa]
Al Ahli lost logically against the leaders of the league. Al Ahli are now ranked 9th, in the relegation zone. But they are only two points away from the 5th position.

Omar Bugiel Chaaban – Sutton United
[Sutton United 3-0 Eastleigh]

It will be a huge step for him to play next season in English Football League Two: a professional league with better exposure!
However the road is still long.
Special mention to coach Tarek Rizk. He is coaching this season Al Thaqbah in the Saudi Futsal Premier League. They won the opening game 5-2 against Al Nahda
