ACL Final | Preview


After the memorable defeat of Al-Hilal at Wanderland on Saturday evening, we’ve now travelled to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia to finish the job in enemy territory.

Tomi Juric’s goal has given us a deserved lead meaning that a win or draw in Sunday morning’s return leg will be enough for us to return to Australia as Champions of Asia.
It has been an incredible journey so far with everyone playing their part; from the players who joined us midway through the competition to those who left at the end of last season and of course every fan who has scanned in at Wanderland, travelled to Asia or huddled around a television late at night.
This club revolves around the Western Sydney community and we play this Champions League Final representing you.
After a 16 hour journey (watch our arrival here), the boys are primed and ready for the biggest match any Australian club has participated in.
A full stadium is expected with Al-Hilal as well as a hostile atmosphere but having experienced similar treatment in the away leg against Guangzhou Evergrande nothing will phase the team.

Make sure you head to Centenary Square on Sunday morning to watch the action with fellow Red & Black fans at the Parramatta live site. Full information can be found by clicking here.

Kick-off is at 4:30am this Sunday as we take on Al-Hilal in the AFC Champions League Final.
