With uncertainty surrounding Ronald Koeman at Barcelona, Xavi Hernandez’s Al-Sadd won again, this time 3-1 against Umm Salal on Tuesday.
Their latest win allowed them to set a remarkable record, with them now unbeaten in 34 consecutive league games under the former Blaugrana midfielder.
Tuesday’s win was relatively straightforward and Santi Cazorla managed to get himself on the scoresheet to get Al-Sadd up and running in the 28th minute. He was the standout player on the day before being taken off in the 55th minute.
Xavi has won seven titles with Al-Sadd already and the current league champions are currently leading the way this season.
In all, Xavi has taken charge of 93 games with the Qatari side, winning 63, drawing 14 and losing 16.
