Football: Xavi's Al Sadd reach Asian Champions League quarter-finals

DOHA: Akram Afif and Abdelkarim Hassan struck in the first half as Al Sadd beat fellow Qatar giants Al Duhail 3-1 on Tuesday (Aug 13) to reach the ...

Following a 1-1 draw last week, Al Sadd outclassed Al Duhail to advance 4-2 aggregate and give Xavi a shot at an Asian continental title during his first season as coach.

In a thrilling match at the Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Stadium, Al Duhail dominated the early exchanges, with the highest scorer of this year's Asia Cup, Almoez Ali, missing a golden chance just after three minutes, shooting wide with only the goalkeeper Saad al-Sheeb to beat.

Afif, who had scored for Al Sadd last week, was once again in his element, as he combined well with Hassan al-Haydos and Baghdad Bounedjah.

But it was Nam Tae-hee who came up with a brilliant pass that led to Al Sadd's first goal in the 20th minute

Al Sadd had momentum and found their second goal with a cracking free-kick from Abdelkarim Hassan in the 34th minute after Nam was brought down by Assim Madibo.

Al Sadd will meet with Saudi Arabia's Al Nassr, who beat UAE's Al Wahda on Monday, in the quarter-finals.

Al Ahli had gone five matches without victory before Tuesday?s match, but although they broke the jinx it was too little too late.
