In a game littered with goals, it was the hosts, Al-Sadd, who broke the deadlock after ten minutes through Ali Assadalla, but Al-Shamal leveled immediately through Mohsen Al-Yazidi.
Algerian forward, Baghdad Bounedjah, responded by giving Al-Sadd the lead in the 13th minute, and two minutes later, Andre Ayew extended the lead with a thumping right finish.
Al-Sadd went into the break with a 3-1 lead, but returned in rampaging form as Matias Nani netted an own goal to put them in firm control of the match.
Yousuf Abdulrisag and Rodrigo Tabata then extended the lead but there was more drama with five minutes remaining as Bounedjah scored his second of the game after Khalaf Saad Al Malki had pulled one back for Al-Shamal.
Andre Ayew was replaced by Hassan Al Haydos in the second half. The Ghana captain has now netted three goals in four competitive matches for Al-Sadd.
Al-Sadd manager, Xavi Hernandez, was delighted with the performance of Andre Ayew and his teammates.
“I’m happy we have taken the lead. We came away today without injuries and many players participated in the match, including young players, and all of these things give us more confidence and continuity,” said Xavi after the game.
“The upcoming derby match against Al Arabi will be difficult, but we are currently going through moments and our goal is always to win all matches.”
