The 2017 FIFA Club World Cup looms closer with just one participant still to be confirmed. Last Saturday Japanese outfit Urawa Red Diamonds saw off Saudi rivals Al-Hilal SC 2-1 on aggregate in Saitama to confirm their presence as Asian champions.
Gremio or Lanús
Six teams have now qualified for the tournament that kicks-off in the UAE from December 6-16th and will see Real Madrid, Pachuca (Mexico) , Al Jazira (UAE and hosts), Auckland City (New Zealand), Urawa Red Diamonds (Japan) and Wydad Casablanca (Morocco) participate. On Thursday we'll know the COMNEBOL representative with the second leg of the 2017 Copa Libertadores between Gremio and Lanus to take place in the Argentine city with the Brazilian side holding a 1-0 lead from last week's first leg.
Last season Real Madrid faced Japan's Kashima Antlers in the final and it took two extra time goals from Zidane's men to see off resistance from the J-League outfit (4-2). This years draw will see Madrid face the winner of the game between Asian champions (Urawa) and the winner of the game between host side Al Jazira and Auckland City.
