Al Ain train ahead of date with destiny with Real Madrid - in pictures
The Arabian Gulf League champions face the title holders in the Fifa Club World Cup final in Abu Dhabi on Saturday
Zoran Mamic and his Al Ain squad went through their final training drills on Friday night before the biggest game in the club's history on Saturday.
They face Real Madrid in the Fifa Club World Cup final at Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhab, with the game kicking off at 8.30pm.
Victories over Team Wellington, Esperance de Tunis and River Plate have got the Arabian Gulf League champions to the stage where they are now potentially just 90 minutes from a famous victory.
Mamic's men appeared in a relaxed mood on Friday as they trained, with Khalid Essa, Caio and Marcus Berg among the squad members to have a smile on their face as they went about their work.
Real have won the tournament the past two seasons and a victory for them on Saturday would give them a record fourth title in the competition.
To put Al Ain's achievements in context, no side outside of Europe or Brazil has ever won the tournament before.
