The stage is set for a thrilling semi-final match in the Club World Cup as Al Ahly takes on Real Madrid at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium. Despite being considered the favorites on paper, Real Madrid enters this game struggling for form.
With only four wins in their last nine matches across all competitions, and a 1-0 loss to Real Mallorca in LaLiga Santander in their last outing, the team is looking to bounce back and secure some silverware in the form of the World Club Cup. However, the task won’t be easy for Carlo Ancelotti’s side as they are dealing with several key injuries to players such as Karim Benzema, Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, Ferland Mendy, Eden Hazard, and Lucas Vazquez.
On the other hand, Al Ahly are on a remarkable 23-game unbeaten run and are currently dominating in their domestic championship. The Egyptian side is well-aware that they are about to face a completely different challenge against Real Madrid, but they are ready to prove their mettle on the big stage.
The match promises to be an exciting one with both teams eager to advance to the final and secure a chance at the coveted World Club Cup title.
