AL Sadd Vs. Al Arabi
This is the clash of Qatar’s two most successful teams; Al Sadd and Al Arabi. For some fans, winning this derby is more noteworthy than winning the league itself. Qatar’s derby is an important component of the country's culture, which celebrates football every time the two teams face each other.
Al Arabi always regarded themselves as the club of Qatar’s working class, in contrast with the supposedly more upper-class support base of Al Sadd. At the present time, the fan bases of both are almost similar and are supported by all social classes. Being the fans of the most successful Qatari side, Al Sadd supporters have so much to brag about; big scores against their arch-rivals in recent years increased the white and black supremacy over this derby.
