Al Hilal Win AFC Champions League Title For Record Fourth Time

Al Hilal became Asian club champions for a record fourth time on Tuesday, following a 2-0 victory over Pohang Steelers of South Korea in the AFC Champions League final.

Playing in front of their own fans at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Al Hilal made the perfect start when a spectacular Nasser Al Dawsari effort put the home side ahead after just 17 seconds.

The goal was the fastest ever scored in the competition’s final.

The Steelers, who were also chasing a fourth continental title, almost grabbed an equaliser in the 12th minute, but  Sin Jin-ho’s volley came back off the crossbar and Lim Sang-hyub was denied by home goalkeeper Abdullah Al Mayouf on the follow-up.

Al Hilal scored their second on 63 minutes after Bafetimbi Gomis put Moussa Marega in on goal and his angled shot beat Lee Jun.

There was no way back for Pohang after that and Leonardo Jardim’s side duly booked their place in history.
