Andre Ayew among top scorers in Qatari Stars League after scoring 5th successive goal

The 31-year-old scored his fifth goal in a row during his side’s 6-4 victory over rivals Al Gharafa on Sunday.

Al Sadd took a slim lead into the final 10 minutes after goals from Baghdad Bounedjah (double), Hassan Al-Haydos and two own goals gave them a 5-4 advantage.

Ayew, however, added the fifth in the 89th minute to seal an important result for Xavi Hernandes’ side.

The Ghanaian’s strike has seen him rise up to third in the race for the golden boot in the Qatari Stars League.

Ayew’s five goals are only bettered by that teammate Bounedjah and Al-Duhail striker Michael Olunga, who are both on eight goals.

The former Swansea City and West Ham United winger has been in sensational form for both club and country.

He scored in Ghana’s 3-1 win over Zimbabwe in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers last week and has also found the net in each of his last five matches for Al Sadd.
