UAE President’s Cup holders Al Jazira (pictured above in the 2016 AFC Champions League Group Stage) slumped to a heavy defeat against Germany’s Hamburg SV after taking an early lead in their friendly in Lower Saxony.
 
Peruvian international Jefferson Farfan gave the Emirati club a 1-0 lead on 34 minutes, firing into the bottom corner of the Hamburg net from just inside the penalty area.
 
But that was as good as it got for Al Jazira, as Hamburg scored twice before half time, first through Aaron Hunt, then via new signing Luca Waldschmidt.
 
The German side added three more goals after the break with Jatta, Djorou and Gregoritsch all getting on the scoresheet to round out an emphatic 5-1 win.
