Ali Afif put the visitor ahead in the 58th minute before late strikes by Bakari Kone for the home side and Sebastian Soria for Lekhwiya mean it is now just a point off top spot.

El Jaish is third after it beat Al Arabi 1-0 thanks to Maher Yousef's strike after the half-hour mark.

Goals from Said Boutahar and Ismail Mahmoud put Umm Salal two goals up against Al Siliyya, who scored a late consolation through Marcelo Tavares.
