Japan's Urawa Red Diamonds win AFC Champions League's title after beating Iran's Sepahan 2-0 in the second leg of the final match.

Yuichiro Nagai scored the Reds' first goal at Saitama Stadium in the 22nd minute off a pass from Brazilian midfielder Robson Ponte.

Yuki Abe doubled the lead in the 71st minute off a deflection from Sepahan goalkeeper Abbas Mohammadi.

Urawa won the title 3-1 on aggregate after managing a 1-1 draw with Sepahan in Isfahan last week.

This is the first AFC Champions League title for a Japanese club since the AFC consolidated its continental club tournaments to form a single, major championship in 2002.

Reaching the final round of the tournament means both Sepahan and Urawa will take part in December's FIFA Club World Cup in Japan.
