The Yokohama F. Marinos vs Al Ain live stream today in the first leg of the AFC Champions League final represents the first half of the biggest game in club soccer in Asia. It's also a sort of repeat of Liverpool vs AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final, with players-turned-managers Harry Kewell and Hernan Crespo in charge of both teams — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.

The teams are in and Anderson Lopes starts for Yokohama, the Brazilian forward vital for a Japanese first-leg victory. Compatriot Elber also starts, with local experience coming from Ken Matsubara and captain Takuya Kida in the spine of the team. Asahi Uenaka also starts. For Al Ain, top scorer Soufiane Rahimi starts as expected up front, with Alejandro Romero, Abdoulkarim Traore and Mohamed Abbas all also in from the off. Park Young-Woo also gets the nod, with Ahmed Barman on the bench.

Back in the final for the first time since 1990, the Marinos may be languishing in 11th place in the J. League with just one win in their last five games, but their continental form has been quietly impressive since September and overcame South Korea's Ulsan Hyundai with the help of a penalty shootout in the semi-finals. Brazilian forward Anderson Lopes has found a rich seam of form, the 30-year-old notching in every knockout round as the Tricolor – part of Man City's multi-club model – snuck into the final. Former Arsenal, Bolton and St Pauli winger Ryo Miyaichi also offers creativity from wide areas.

What Al Ain lack in star playing names, they more than make up for in togetherness and a bright tactical plan under former Milan and Chelsea forward Hernan Crespo. After easing through their group with five wins from six, the record 14-time UAE champions knocked out Cristiano Ronaldo's Al Nassr in a quarter-final penalty shootout, then did for Al Hilal, another Saudi Arabian side, in the last four. Moroccan forward Soufiane Rahimi is the tournament's top scorer with 11 goals, his semi-final hat-trick against Al Hilal a stunning demonstration of lethal finishing. Nicknamed the Boss, the Abu Dhabi-based team last won the tournament in 2003.
