SOUTH Korean team Jeonbuk Motors has won the Asian Champions League for the second time with a 3-2 aggregate win over Al Ain.

The second leg of the final, played in the Hazza bin Zayed Stadium in the United Arab Emirates, finished 1-1.

Brazilian Douglas, one of the stars of Al Ain's campaign this season, then had the chance to level the aggregate scores from the spot but fired wide.

Al Ain attacked for large amounts of the second half but Ismail Ahmed headed over the bar, while goalkeeper Kwoun saved from from Danilo Asprilla and Douglas.
