Ammon News - The highly anticipated Asian Champions League semi-final between Al Ain and Al Hilal has been postponed until Wednesday after rain and thunderstorms hit the UAE.

The first leg, which pits against one another 2003 Asian champions Al Ain and record four-time winners Hilal, was initially scheduled to take place on Tuesday night at the Hazza bin Zayed Stadium.

However, the game has been pushed back 24 hours because of the adverse weather conditions that blanketed the Emirates on Tuesday morning, with more forecast for later in the afternoon.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Al Ain said they “welcomed” the Asian Football Confederation’s decision to postpone the game “for the safety of fans who are scheduled to arrive from all the emirates of the country and the sister kingdom of Saudi Arabia”.

The first leg will kick off at the same time of 8pm, with the original matchday tickets remaining valid.
