It’s time for the 19th FIFA Club World Cup Final, and a familiar name is set to be engraved on the trophy once again.
Real Madrid are the most successful team in this competition’s history, claiming the title four times, in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Los Blancos have now never lost any of their 13 matches at this tournament, following Wednesday night’s 4-1 demolition of Al Ahly in the semi-finals.
Vinícius Júnior broke the deadlock with an impudent dink, before Fede Valverde’s calm finish doubled their advantage.
The Egyptian heavyweights did half the deficit from the penalty spot, before Luka Modrić actually saw a spot-kick of his own saved.
Nevertheless, in stoppage time, Rodrygo’s scoop and then Sergio Arribas’ first in senior football secured an emphatic win.
14 of the last 15 Club World Cups have been won by the UEFA representative, 2012 the exception, with Real Madrid very much expected to continue that theme.
Al Hilal though will believe they can spring a huge upset, thereby becoming the first non-European or Brazilian champions of the world.
A week ago, the Saudi champions pulled off a remarkable comeback to oust hosts Wydad Casablanca.
They needed a 94th minute penalty from Mohamed Kanno to snatch a 1-1 draw, before advancing 5-3 in the shootout.
Then, on Tuesday, Ramón Díaz caused a big shock by eliminating Copa Libertadores winner Flamengo in Tangier.
Salem Al-Dawsari converted a pair of first half penalties, before Luciano Vietto bagged the winner, firing home in off the crossbar.
So, the Blue Waves have become the first Saudi club to reach the final of this competition, now dreaming of going home with a trophy.
Will Real Madrid’s quality see them crowned champions of the world at Stade Prince Moulay Abdellah?
