Al Ahly vs Real Madrid preview
Al Ahly will be looking for glory in Morocco and surprise the heavy favorites Madrid in the semifinals after defeating Auckland City and Seattle Sounders.
Marcel Koller’s men will play in the semifinals of the tournament for the third consecutive year and could be a threat to the Spanish giants, as they are commanding the Egyptian Premier League with 37 points, six clear of second-placed Pyramids, and haven’t lost any of their 15 games.
Al Ahly have never won the Club World Cup title, but they are the team with the most games played in the tournament ever (20).
Meanwhile, Los Merengues go into the game against their Egyptian opponents in what probably is their worst moment of the season.
Carlo Ancelotti’s pupils suffered a serious setback in their quest for the LaLiga title, as they unexpectedly lost 1-0 to Mallorca and are now eight points behind Barcelona in the standings.
The 14-time Champions League winners have been vulnerable in their last games and their opponents have been able to capitalize on Real’s flaws.
However, Madrid have always enjoyed playing the Club World Cup, as they have won all of their previous four finals and a fifth title could boost the squad’s confidence ahead of the Champions League round of 16 fixture vs. Liverpool.
Al Ahly vs Real Madrid: prediction
Real Madrid won’t have an easy game against Al Ahly, as the Egyptian team is also experienced in the tournament, and the Spanish giants go into the game without Karim Benzema, Thibaut Courtois, Ferland Mendy, Lucas Vázquez, and Eden Hazard.
Despite their injury issues, Madrid are expected to take advantage of their experience and their superior quality to come out on top and play the final.
Al Ahly 1-2 Real Madrid
