Gremio will play either Real Madrid or Al Jazira in the final of the 2017 Club World Cup after edging past Pachuca in a scrappy semi-final that went to extra time.

Everton scored the decisive goal for the Copa Libertadores champions after 95 minutes, moving inside and curling the ball around veteran goalkeeper Óscar Pérez. Pachuca midfielder Victor Guzman received a second yellow card soon after to make the Liga MX side's task even greater. 

Despite the defeat, Pachuca ventured further in the competition than any CONCACAF club had done previously. While Gremio reach the final for the first time since 1983, when the tournament was still in its previous guise as the Intercontinental Cup.
