Jorge Jesus attributed Al Hilal’s historic accomplishment of setting a world record with 28 consecutive wins to the collective efforts of the entire club and its fans. The Saudi Arabian team, currently leading the Saudi Pro League by a substantial 12 points, secured their latest victory with a 2-0 triumph over Al Ittihad in the Asian Champions League quarter-final second leg.

Goals from Yasser Al Shahrani and Malcom propelled Hilal to a 4-0 aggregate win, advancing them to the semi-finals where they will face Al Ain from the UAE next month. This victory also marks a world record, surpassing The New Saints’ previous record of 27 successive wins in the 2016/17 season.

Jorge Jesus expressed his joy, acknowledging the contributions of everyone involved with the club, including the president, board of directors, players, staff, and fans. While recognizing the significance of the record, Jesus emphasized that the ultimate goal is to secure the Saudi Pro League title and achieve success in cup competitions.

As they pursue their 19th Saudi top-flight title, Al Hilal, who has been unbeaten since September 25, will focus on domestic matters, facing Damac on Saturday. Notably, their winning streak continued despite the absence of record signing Neymar, who suffered a season-ending injury in October.

Jesus highlighted the squad’s resilience in Neymar’s absence and emphasized the importance of sustained hard work to achieve their season objectives. Despite the impressive record, Jesus reiterated that the focus should remain on securing trophies for Al Hilal.
