VIDEO: Embarrassment for Xavi as penalty miss costs Al Sadd

The former Barcelona man was in action for his new club in the Asian Champions League, while former England boss Sven Goran Eriksson presided over a win for Shanghai SIPG

A missed penalty by Xavi, the Champions League and World Cup winning former Barcelona captain, contributed to Al Sadd's shoot-out defeat to Al Jazira in the Asian Champions League. 

The former Spain international moved to the Qatar club ahead of the 2015-16 season, following a remarkable treble win with Barcelona in the previous campaign.

But Xavi's new club will be unable to match the Blaugrana's trophy haul after a 5-4 shoot-out defeat to Al Jazira saw the Qatari club eliminated at the play-off stage.

Elsewhere, former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson enjoyed more success than Xavi, helping to mastermind his Shanghai SIPG side's defeat of Muangthong United to progress to the next round.
