In the match of the 1/2 finals of the FIFA Club World Cup, Egyptian Al-Ahly and Real Madrid will meet. How will the upcoming duel end? We'll figure it out.
"Al-Ahli" began its journey at the tournament with the 1/8 finals, where it defeated Oakland City with a score of 3:0, then the American Seattle Sounders were beaten (1:0). The Egyptian championship is now in full swing, and Al-Ahly is showing incredible results there: the team leads the standings, ahead of the nearest pursuer by six points. For 15 games he has not suffered a single defeat, while conceding only five goals.
Real Madrid (Spain)
Real Madrid is just starting to fight in the tournament. The winner of four FIFA Club World Cup titles will play without Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and French striker Karim Benzema. In the last match, which took place on February 5, the capital club lost to Mallorca on the road with a score of 0:1 in La Liga. In the championship, the "cream" are not doing the best: they are in second place, eight points behind Barcelona.
Statistics and figures
- Real Madrid is the favorite of the match according to bookmakers;
- Al-Ahli has not suffered a single defeat this season;
- Real Madrid have won only once in regular time in the last four games;
- The teams have not met each other before
I think that the ceremonial hosts of the field are able to oppose something to a more eminent opponent, the Madrid club will obviously have a hard time opening the opponent's defense, because they conceded only five goals in the championship. I propose to bet on the total total of 2.5 goals less.
