Before the kick-off on Monday, the Qatar Stars League as well as players of Al Rayyan and Al Wakrah honored the medical staff of both teams, Qatar Red Crescent and Hamad Hospital Emergency department for their efforts to rescue Coulibaly.

With this win, Al Rayyan raised their points to 15, while Al Wakrah remained on 19 points.

Al Wakrah tried to equalize in the remaining minutes of first half, in vain.

In the second half, Rodriguez put Al Rayyan 2-0 up after following up on Hisham Alis shot.

Rodriguez was at it again four minutes later with a superb shot from outside the penalty area that went in to the right of goalkeeper Saoud Al Khater.

Al Wakrah tried to reduce the margin. A header from Mohamed Benyettou rebounded in front of Ismail Mahmoud, who shot it the goal unsuccessfully.
