Urawa con­fi­dent they will be crowned kings of Asia

The National - News - - SPORT | GOLF -

Striker Shinzo Koroki is con­fi­dent that Urawa Red Di­a­monds will turn the ta­bles on Saudi Ara­bia’s Al Hi­lal today as the Ja­panese side look to fight back from a first-leg loss to claim a record third Asian Cham­pi­ons League ti­tle. An­dre Car­rillo’s goal in Riyadh two weeks ago sep­a­rates the teams ahead of their meet­ing at Saitama Sta­dium as Urawa aim to lift the tro­phy they won in 2007 and 2017. Vic­tory over Al Hi­lal would make the J-League side the first team to win the ti­tle on three oc­ca­sions. But Tsuyoshi Ot­suki’s side will need to put in an im­proved per­for­mance af­ter a dis­ap­point­ing show­ing in Saudi Ara­bia. “Even though we lost the first leg 1-0 we still have a chance and what you saw in Saudi Ara­bia and what you guys will see to­mor­row will be two dif­fer­ent things, I’m very sure of that,” Koroki said.
