Al Ain target on winning second AFC Champions League title 14 years after picking up their first crown in 2003.
Last year’s runners-up will square off against Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal in the quarterfinals of the AFC Champions League.
Al Ain will have the home advantage when they take on their opponents in the first leg at home stadium Hazza bin Zayed Stadium on 21 August. The return leg will be played out at the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium in Riyadh on 11 September.
It will be a rematch of the 2014 semi-final between The Gulf rivals, which the Saudi Arabian side won 4-2 on aggregate.
Al Ain, the only UAE team to have been crowned continental champions, were close to emulating their 2003 title last November, but defeated 3-2 on aggregate in the final by South Korea’s Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.
