In the first leg played on November 18, Urawa had drawn 1-1 against Al-Hilal, when Silva also gave his team the lead before Syrian forward Omar Kharbin drew level.

Al-Hilal was denied their third AFC Champions League title, and the first since 2000, while Urawa clinched their second crown ten years after first winning the title.

With the win, Urawa secured a place in the FIFA Club World Cup scheduled for next month in United Arab Emirates.

In their first match at the 2017 Club World Cup, Urawa is scheduled to take on the winner between Emirati Al Jazira and New Zealand’s Auckland City in the play-offs.
