'Manita' from the end of Xavi with Al Sadd

After eliminating Al Rayyan (0-1) in the semifinal of the Qatar Cup on Thursday, he reaches his fifth final. For now, it has been full: it has won the four that it has arrived.


A solitary goal by Santi Cazorla in the final minutes, and from a penalty, helped Al Sadd beat Al Rayyan (0-1) and reach the final of the Prince of Qatar Cup. It will be the fifth final that Al Sadd has played since Xavi Hernández is at the helm of the team, with a spectacular balance of triumphs: he has won the four finals he has played.

Al Rayyan, led by former Blaugrana Laurent Blamc, put up a strong resistance, making it clear that they are one of Qatar's fittest teams, and it was not until the final minutes that the semifinal was decided, thanks to Cazorla's success, once again decisive, from eleven meters.

Xavi's Al Sadd continues to burn stages in a perfect season, where he has already conquered the Qatar Cup, reached the final in the Prince's Cup and is dominating the QSL in an overwhelming way, thirteen points behind the second, Al Duhail, when only 18 left to play.

Xavi, who has four titles as a coach, is about to get two more in one go. The one that will fall next is the League title: if Al Sadd win next Monday against Al Arabi and Al Duhail fail to win their match against Al Gharafa, Xavi's team would be proclaimed champion five days in advance.
