Elsewhere in the same stage, three-time defending cup champions Al Ahli are set for an exciting clash against Al Ettihad tonight, scheduled for a 9.30pm tip-off.
Also in the quarter-finals, Al Hala will be playing Muharraq.
Sitra are already through to the semi-finals, and await the winner of the Hala-Muharraq match-up.
