Al-Hilal Breaks World Record for Consecutive Wins

Saudi Pro League powerhouse Al-Hilal has etched its name into the annals of football history by setting a new world record for the most consecutive wins by a top-flight team.

In a remarkable display of dominance, Al-Hilal secured their 28th consecutive victory with a 2-0 triumph over Al-Ittihad in the Asian Champions League on Tuesday. This incredible feat surpasses the previous record of 27 consecutive wins held by Welsh side The New Saints since 2016.

Al-Hilal, widely regarded as Saudi Arabia’s most illustrious club, has been on an extraordinary winning streak since their 1-1 draw with Damac on September 21st. Led by former Benfica and Flamengo manager Jorge Jesus, the team has displayed relentless consistency and determination on the field.

Among the notable players contributing to Al-Hilal’s success are former Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrovic and ex-Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves. Additionally, Brazilian superstar Neymar, who joined from Paris St-Germain last summer, has been a part of the squad, although he has been sidelined due to a serious knee injury since October.

Mitrovic, in particular, has been in scintillating form, notching an impressive 26 goals during the team’s record-breaking run. This remarkable streak includes victories in 16 league games, three domestic cup matches, and nine encounters in the Asian Champions League.

With a commanding 12-point lead over Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr at the top of the Saudi Pro League, Al-Hilal has asserted its dominance both domestically and on the continental stage. The team’s recent victory secures their spot in the semi-finals of the Asian Champions League, further solidifying their status as one of the most formidable teams in world football.
