Despite his age, Xavi remains an integral part of the Al Sadd team and has consistently demonstrated how dangerous he can be on a set.
With just eight minutes away in the Asian Champions League clash between Al Sadd and Uzbek side Pakhtakor, the Spaniard stepped up to curl in the opening goal, rooting the goalkeeper onto the ground.
While the visitors would equalize Egor Krimets at half an hour, it would be Xavi who would set up the winning goal and set it up with three minutes of normal time left.
