SYDNEY (AP) - The AFC Champions League final will give Al Hilal’s Kwak Tae-hwi an opportunity to win the title for a second time with a team from the opposite side of the continent.

The 34-year-old South Korean international led Ulsan Hyundai to the 2012 title before moving to Saudi Arabia in 2013, initially with Al Shabab before joining Al Hilal late last year.

Kwak will play for Al Hilal in the first leg of the ACL title match on Saturday night in Sydney against the A-League’s Western Sydney, with the return leg in Riyadh on Nov. 1.

He says “a second victory … would rewrite history for myself and Al Hilal.”

Kwak’s teammate Saud Kariri is already a two-time ACL champion, winning with Saudi Arabia’s Al Ittihad in 2004 and 2005.
