Royal Saudis look to ruin Wanderers' Cinderella story in ACL final

ESPN FC's John Wilkinson and Jason Dasey preview the second leg of the AFC Champions League final.

On paper, it seemed to be the ultimate mismatch: the aristocratic six-time continental champions from Saudi Arabia against an Australian club based in a Rugby League heartland that had been in existence for a little more than two years.

And yet, the fledgling Western Sydney Wanderers hold the upper hand over hot favourites Al Hilal going into Saturday's second leg of the AFC Champions League final in Riyadh.

Western Sydney hold a one goal lead over Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal after winning the first-leg 1-0 at Parramatta Stadium on Oct. 25.

Wanderers' Ante Covic: Dangerous to protect lead at Al Hilal home

Wanderers' goalkeeper Ante Covic has kept seven clean sheets in the AFC Champions League this season.

Goalkeeper Ante Covic has urged Western Sydney Wanderers to put their front foot forward in the second leg of the AFC Champions League final against Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal in Riyadh on Nov. 1. The A-League side are seeking to build on the first leg 1-0 win to claim Australia's maiden continental title.

Substitute Tomi Juric was the match-winning hero, as the striker netted in the 64th minute at Parramatta Stadium on Oct. 25. Veteran goalkeeper Covic made an equally vital contribution to Wanderers'...

Western Sydney Wanderers show toughness to edge first leg vs. Al Hilal

Tomi Juric celebrates Western Sydney Wanderers' 1-0 first-leg win over Al Hilal.

This was football rope-a-dope. Western Sydney Wanderers took everything Al Hilal could throw their way for the first hour of the first leg of the Asian Champions League final on Saturday evening in Australia and then won 1-0. The Saudi Arabians didn't exactly lay siege to the home goal but had all the possession and the shots. The first save their goalkeeper had to make wasn't so much a save but rather a despairing lunge as Tomi Juric bundled the ball home from close range in the 64th minute with...
