Last season Real Madrid faced Japan's Kashima Antlers in the final and it took two extra time goals from Zidane's men to see off resistance from the J-League outfit (4-2). This years draw will see Madrid face the winner of the game between Asian champions (Urawa) and the winner of the game between host side Al Jazira and Auckland City.
