It’s a celebration time for Xavi because his team and the hosts, Al Sadd have sealed a win in the dominant match against Sepahan of Iran in the AFC League championship. The victory came in front of a large number of football fans supporting the home team at the Jassim Bin Hamad stadium. This helped the Wolves, having Xavi Hernandez as the frontman, to reach the top of the standings of Group C thanks to the difference in goals. Al Sadd and Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia have both collected 4 points from their games. Sepahan, on the other hand, went down to the third place in the group consisting of four teams, even after clinching the win from the Al Ain team with 4-1.
The second goal for Al Sadd saw a beautiful exchange between Al Haydos and Baghdad Bounedjah, the former drilling the low cross by just an inch, and the latter flicking the ball inside the net to make the lead double in the 72nd minute of the game. Al Sadd will play their next match against Al Ain away according to their upcoming fixture on 3rd March.
