JEDDAH: Al-Ittihad’s poor run of form continued on Monday with a 2-0 loss at Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya in the Asian Champions League, a defeat that will pile more pressure on coach Nuno Santo.

The performance in the northern Iraqi city of Erbil was a disappointing one with the Tigers mustering just two shots on target.

After a run of five games in the Roshn Saudi League without a win had seen the Saudi champions slip 11 points behind leaders Al-Hilal, victory in Iraq could have seen the Jeddah giants book a place in the knockout stage with two games in Group C remaining.
