Moroccan Soufiane Rahimi and Togolese Kodjo Fo-Doh Laba lead Al-Ain to Asian Champions League victory

Al-Ain, the United Arab Emirates football club, clinched the Asian Champions League title for the first time in 21 years with a resounding 5-1 victory over Yokohama F Marinos in the second leg of the final at Hazza bin Zayed Stadium on Saturday.

The home team overturned a 2-1 first-leg deficit to secure a 6-3 aggregate win.

Moroccan striker Soufiane Rahimi and Togolese attacker Kodjo Fo-Doh Laba shone brightly with two goals each, propelling Al Ain to a resounding triumph. Paraguayan playmaker Kaku also converted a penalty to contribute to the victory.

Al Ain's victory fittingly marked the end of the current format's final edition before the competition transitions to the AFC Champions League Elite. With this triumph, Al Ain secures a spot as Asia's fourth representative at the FIFA Club World Cup 2025. Al Ain's victory comes alongside other top clubs from Saudi Arabia, Japan, and South Korea who will also represent Asia at the FIFA Club World Cup 2025.
