Our prediction for this FIFA Club World Cup match:
A spot in the FIFA Club World Cup final will be at stake when Flamengo and Al Hilal face each other at Khalifa International Stadium on Tuesday evening. Flamengo won the Copa Libertadores trophy thanks to an amazing comeback in the title game against River Plate, but they do not want to stop now. The Brazilians are eager to win yet another silverware, and we are positive they will fight tooth and nail against Al Hilal.
A man to watch in Jorge Jesus’ team will be former Chelsea and Atletico Madrid full back Filipe Luis. Razvan Lucescu’s men, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Flamengo by beating ES Tunis in the quarter-finals. Bafetimbi Gomis, who scored the winner in the triumph over the CAF Champions League winners, is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up. However, Al Hilal will be without suspended midfielder Mohammed Kanoo against the Rubro-Negro, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
