QCB Holds on to Top Spot, Qatar National Bank Moves into Second Place
The Aspire Banks League has now concluded its eleventh week, with Qatar Central Bank (QCB) holding onto its position at the top of the league following a comfortable win against Qatar Development Bank (QDB), who currently sit at the bottom of the table with just three points.
During the week, Qatar National Bank (QNB) recovered from its most recent defeat against QCB with a strong 2-1 win against Barwa Bank, allowing the team to climb up to second place in the table with 27 points.
QCB is closely followed by Barwa Bank, who currently sit in third place with 24 points, Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB), who have 21 points, Masraf Al Rayyan, who have 19 points, and Doha Bank, who have 17 points.
After maintaining the top position in the league for nine weeks running, QNB fell from its first place ranking after a match against QCB in week 10. The forthcoming matches are expected to be highly competitive, given the small differences between the points each team has.
The Aspire Banks League, which follows a points-based ranking system, launched in October 2015 and will conclude in February 2016. The league is being played over a total of 91 matches every Saturday and Sunday in the indoor football pitch at the Aspire Dome.
