Al Hilal and Jorge Jesus qualify for the Champions League

Team trained by the Portuguese coach added another victory.

Al Hilal, coached by Portugal’s Jorge Jesus, qualified for the second round of the Arab Champions League with a 1-0 victory at Oman’s Al-Shabab stadium in the second leg of the opening round.

A goal scored at 61 minutes by Brazilian midfielder Carlos Eduardo, a former Estoril Praia and FC Porto player, was enough for the two-time Saudi championship – and league leader of this season, in equality with Al Nassr – to win the trip to Oman.

The team coached by former Lisbon and Sporting rivals Sporting and Benfica, who had imposed themselves by the same margin (1-0) in the first leg, have already won the competition twice in 1994 and 1995.
