Urawa Red Diamonds will hope to take a huge stride towards ending their 10-year continental title drought when Takafumi Hori's side prepare to face off against Al Hilal in the first leg of their AFC Champions League (ACL) final in Riyadh on Saturday evening.

Urawa became the first Japanese side to win the competition since the beginning of the ACL era in 2002, and following in the footsteps of Jubilo Iwata in becoming only the second J-League side to be crowned Asia's champion club.

Rafael Da Silva scores for Urawa vs. SIPG
Urawa Reds advanced to the ACL final thanks to Rafael Silva's first-half strike in the second leg.

Rafael Silva scored the goal that took Urawa Red Diamonds into the final of the AFC Champions League on Wednesday evening as the Brazilian's header earned Takafumi Hori's side a 1-0 win over Shanghai SIPG, and a meeting next month with Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal.

Silva's 11th minute effort secured a 2-1 aggregate win over the two legs for the 2007 champions. They will be seeking to become the first Japanese winners since Gamba Osaka claimed the title in 2008.

Omar Kharbin sends Al Hilal into final of Asian Champions League

Omar Kharbin
Omar Kharbin was the star of the show again.

Omar Kharbin settled any hint of nerves and removed all doubt as Al Hilal booked their place in the final of the Asian Champions League on Tuesday evening as a 2-2 draw with Persepolis confirmed the Saudi side's place in the continental showcase.

Kharbin struck twice to cancel out a brace from Godwin Mensha for the club from Tehran, having netted a hat trick in the first leg to set up the two-time Asian champions for a relatively straightforward evening in Muscat.

Omar Khribin is Syria talisman vs. Socceroos in AFC World Cup playoff

Tim Cahill discusses his new role with Australia and praises Thailand's resilience in their World Cup Qualifier.

A quick look at Syria's goals-for column in the third round of 2018 AFC World Cup qualification would not give Australia coach Ange Postecoglou any reason to lose too much sleep.

After all, with the Syrians scoring just nine times in 10 games, the Socceroos should be able to keep their playoff opponents at bay over the two legs on Oct. 5 and 10.
