Sebastian Giovinco clinches the Asian Champions League title with Al-Hilal

The Maurice Revello Tournament 2008 best player has won the first continental title of his career.

Al Hilal eventually end their hoodoo. After losing the final in 2014 and then 2017, Saudi giants have won on Sunday the Asian Champions League 2019 as they have beaten Japanese side Urawa Red Diamonds.

After winning the first leg in Saudi Arabia (1-0), Al-Hilal won as well the second leg held on Sunday (2-0) in Japan. Saudis got their revenge as they have lost in final two years ago against Urawa Red Diamonds.

Sebastian Giovinco, who joined the Riyad-based club on last January, has played a key role in this final. The 32-year-old forward has been named man of the match of the second leg as he has notably provided an assist.

In addition to his impact in final, the Tournoi Maurice Revello 2008 winner and best player, distinguished himself earlier in the competition as he has found the net against Iranian side Esteghlal in the group stage as well as against Saudi rivals Al Ittihad in quarter-finals.

By winning the third Champions League title in their history, Al Hilal secured a spot for the upcoming FIFA Club World Cup 2019 held in Qatar. The newly-crowned Asian champions will play their first game in this competition on 14th December against African champions, ES Tunis.
