Persepolis vs Ulsan Hyundai: AFC Champions League final preview

The Iranian and South Korean clubs both have a strong historical connection with this competition and are all set for the 2020 AFC Champions League final, which takes place on Saturday.

Persepolis have been to the final twice in the last three years but on each occasion were not able to complete the dream. Could this year be third time lucky? If they are they would end the Iranian trophy drought that has run since 1992-1993 when PAS Tehran won the Asian Club Championship.

Having won the 2012 title, Ulsan Hyundai came very close to becoming the fourth South Korean club to be crowned Asian Champions and the second club to win two titles in the Champions League era.

The South Korean outfit made their debut in the Asian Club Championship in 1997-98, before their AFC Champions League era began in 2006 when they participated as K-League champions and went all the way to the semi-finals in their first appearance.
