Jorge Jesus is four wins away from entering the Guinness Book of Records

Al Hilal, led by Jorge Jesus, strengthened its lead in the Saudi Football League today, with a 2-0 victory at Al Ettifaq Stadium, achieving its 24th consecutive victory (14 in the championship, three in the cup, and seven in the AFC Champions League). ), in a series that began on September 25, 2023, four days after a 1-1 draw with Damac, in the seventh round of the tournament.

The Saudi national team is now four victories away from surpassing the record for consecutive victories in the history of world football, which is 27, which was set by the Welsh team The New Saints in the 2016-2017 season. At the moment, he has equaled Coritiba's 24 wins (2011) and on Thursday he will have the opportunity to reach Ajax's 25 (1955). To do this, it is necessary to beat Sepahan for the championship and also continue Ajax's 26 victories (1971-72), reaching the Welsh logo number 27.

“Wins are the result of the quality of the players. “I have a group that really believes in my ideas,” Jorge Jesus defended after yesterday's victory, admitting: “Anyone who thinks we feel pressured by having to break the world record for consecutive wins is completely wrong. Yes, we are on 24 wins in a row, and we are four away from achieving that maximum. But this does not put pressure on us because anyone in Al Hilal always has to play to win.

Every win is only important, according to the coach, because it brings the team closer to winning titles. “Every victory we achieve brings us closer to the goal, which is to win the championship, the Champions League or the cup. Therefore, breaking this record will mean good things for us, in La Liga and in the Champions League.”
