One Of the Benefits from the merge between Lekhwiya and El Jaish is the arrival of the Brazilian professional Lucas Mendez to the team list and his success in presenting special performance during the season despite that it is his first season with new teammates .

Lucas did not need much time to adapt with his teammates and despite that the beginning was not good after the team lost in Sheikh Jassim Cup championship ( Super Cup ) against Al Sadd by 2-4 but Al Duhail succeeded in presenting a very good season and certainly this is because of the defense line stars .

What distinguishes Lucas from his teammates is his ability to make games to his teammates in the midline and attack line .

With the start of the new season , Lucas will have another challenge as the team will enter the season with a confrontation against Al Rayyan in Sheikh Jassim Cup ( Super Cup ) , and after it will begin the league matches and after an important confrontation against Persepolis Iranian team in the quarter-finals of the AFC champions league which is the match that Al Duhail will enter to continue victories and keeping its record which lasted for 35 matches without loss .
