Saudi: Al Hilal beats Pohang to win AFC Champions League

Nasser Al-Dawsari and Moussa Marega were the heroes as Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal beat Pohang Steelers 2-0 on Tuesday to claim a record-equaling fourth Asian club title in the AFC Champions League.

Al Dawsari’s stunner just 16 seconds into the game was the fastest goal ever scored in an AFC Champions League final and it sent Al Hilal on the way to adding the 2021 title to the Asian crowns claimed by the club in 1991, 2000 and 2019. Both teams made one change from the semi-finals with Sin Jin-ho, an AFC Champions League winner with Ulsan Hyundai last year, returning from suspension to start for Pohang in place of Lee Seung-mo while Muteb Al Mufarrij replaced Ali Al Bulaihi for the Saudis.
