All-square in Rabat

Will the deadlock be broken or are we going to have extra time?

The Wydad supporters have taken the colour and noise but we have had no goals yet. It's all to play for in the second half and there will be extra time if required.

Jabrane's free-kick from 25 yards out is straight at Al Muaiouf in the Al Hilal goal.

Referee Barton goes over to have a word with Al Hilal boss Díaz. He's probably just telling him to calm down. Barton is a young official, just 32 and younger than Al Hilal striker Ighalo.

Attia Attia Allah curls a left-footed free into the box.

Al Hilal have no concern with that one. It's low and fails to beat the first man.

It's still 0-0 with 10 minutes to play in the first half.

The flag is up against Moussa Marega.

Wydad work the triangles near the corner flag on the right.

El Amloud curls a low ball across the box but there is too much on it for Lamkel Ze. Nice idea but it goes out for a goal-kick.

Wydad have the ball in the net, but Jalal Daoudi is offside!

There will be extra time if needed today.

The Wydad corner comes in from the right. Al Hilal clear it. The Wydad fans are making serious noise. It's a cracking atmosphere but it remains goalless.

Of the teams involved on Saturday, you might not be that surprised to hear that none of them have ever won the Club World Cup.

Seattle Sounders, having won the CONCACAF Champions League for the first time in 2022, are making their debut, in stark contrast to opponents Al Ahly, who have now participated in eight editions.

Marega tries to break through the Wydad defence but Zola Kiaku does brilliantly to win the ball back. 0-0

It's a poor delivery from Al Dawsari's corner on the right and Wydad manage to clear.

Al Hilal are currently in third place in the Saudi Pro League table and boast plenty of experience in their squad.

Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo is the most notable name in attack along with André Carrillo and Argentinian forward Luciano Vietto, formerly of Villarreal.

Ighalo goes over holding his face and it all kicks off here. 

Al Hilal win a free.

Al Hilal are certainly feeling the early pressure.

The Wydad free-kick is punched back out to Yahya Jabrane, who lets fly but his 20-yard effort goes just over the bar.

Reda Jaadi!

It flies just over the bar.

Wydad's starting XI

Here is how Wydad will line up this afternoon.

Club World Cup history

AFC/Asian and CAF/African teams have reached two finals. Japanese side Kashima Antlers lost to Madrid in the 2016 final, while the Spaniards beat Al Ain of the UAE in 2018. Congolese club TP Mazembe and Raja Casablanca of Morocco are the two African finalists, losing to Inter and Bayern in 2010 and 2013 respectively.

OFC/Oceania is the only continent never to have provided a FIFA Club World Cup finalist, despite Auckland City holding the record for number of appearances. And that trend won’t be broken this year, with the New Zealanders having already been sent home by Al Ahly.
Which club has won the most FIFA Club World Cups?


Which club has won the most FIFA Club World Cups?

Real Madrid are the only team involved this year who have previously won the FIFA Club World Cup and, in another shocking revelation, they hold the record for most victories in the competition… although that’s a recent phenomenon, despite the fact that they’ve not won it for five years.

Seattle Sounders set to make history

Seattle Sounders will make history on 4 February as they step over the white line and onto the pitch of the Club World Cup, becoming the first side ever to represent MLS at the tournament.

Their opponents on the night will be Al-Ahly, last year’s Egyptian Champions. The African club beat Auckland City 3-0 in the first round of the competition and will take on Brian Schmetzer’s team for a place in the semi-final against Real Madrid.

Flamengo and Real Madrid await

Flamengo and Real Madrid, reigning champions of South America and Europe respectively, will find out their semi-final opponents on Saturday with the quarter-final matches. 

Seattle Sounders take on Al Ahly in the other quarter-final later today.

Today's referee

Today's match will be refereed byIván Barton of El Salvador. The 32-year-old will be assisted by American official Kathryn Nesbitt, a referee who made history as a member of the sextet of women selected to referee matches in football's top competition.

Al Hilal get set

The Saudi side will be hoping to improve on their fourth-place finishes in 2019 and 2021 and will need a win against Wydad at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat.

To Rabat!

Kickoff is two hours away and we'll have the team news from both camps for you as soon as we get it!
