Tuesday’s FIFA Club World Cup matchup between Flamengo and Al Hilal will be held at the Grand Stade de Tanger. The competition has eliminated three teams, including the hosts, Wydad Casablanca, and moves on to the semi-final stage on Tuesday.
Flamengo, a CONMEBOL team, will play Al Hilal for the first time on Saturday. Al Hilal defeated the Moroccans in a penalty shootout. Mengo’s victory in the 2022 Copa Libertadores, their third title in the competition, earned them a spot in the FIFA Club World Cup.
After six matches, they are currently leading the Carioca Série A with 14 points. However, in their last five games, they have only won twice, lost once, and drawn twice. The only time the two teams met was at the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup when Al Hilal was defeated 3-1 by the Brazilian team.
After participating in the 2019 and 2021 editions, in which they were eliminated in the semi-finals, the AFC representatives are making their third appearance on the international stage. Al-Za’eem had won three of their previous five matches when they entered the contest.
After 15 games, they are fourth in the Saudi League with 32 points, two behind leaders Al Shabab. With Flamengo’s brisk play style, Al Hilal’s sluggish play pattern may struggle. We observed that flaw in Wydad Casablanca.
In both this match and the competition, Pedro is the one player everyone needs to keep an eye out for. Al Hilal’s main attacking threats are Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo, who has eight goals, and Moussa Marega, who has four goals.
He was the top scorer in the 2022 Copa Libertadores and leads Flamengo with four goals and two assists in the Carioca Série A. It is anticipated that Flamengo will prevail over Al Hilal primarily on the basis of individuality.
Prediction: Flamengo 2-1 Al Hilal
In their last five games, Flamengo has conceded five goals and scored nine goals. Following their debut in 2019, Flamengo is participating in their second FIFA Club World Cup. Liverpool defeated Flamengo 1-0 in the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup final.
In their last ten games across all competitions, Al Hilal has lost once. In their last five games, Flamengo has won twice, drawn twice, and lost once, while Al Hilal has won three times, drawn once, and lost once.
In the 2022 Copa Libertadores final against Athletico Paranaense, Gabriel Barbosa scored the winning goal for Flamengo, and Santos made three saves to keep the game scoreless. Pedro won the Golden Boot with 12 goals, and those three players, along with David Luiz, Everton Ribeiro, and Giorgian De Arrascaeta, were named to the Team of the Tournament.
De Arrascaeta scored the equalizer against Al-Hilal four minutes into the second half, Bruno Henrique was involved in all three goals, scoring the winner 12 minutes from time, and Al-Za’eem defender Ali Al-Bulaihi deflected his cross four minutes later.
Matheus Cunha started in goal for Mengao on Wednesday in their 1-0 Caricoca Serie A victory against Boavista, and Matheuzinho and Filipe Luis started on the defensive line instead of Ayrton and Guillermo Varela.
On Saturday, Mohamed Kanno saved Al-Hilal with a penalty kick in the 93rd minute, and Wydad’s first shot in the shootout hit both posts, allowing the Saudis to win. They took advantage, and Moussa Marega, Luciano Vietto, Saleh Al-Shehri, Abdullah Al-Hamdan, and Musab Al-Juwayr all converted their spot kicks to advance to the semifinals.
Salem Al-Dawsari gave them a 1-0 lead against Flamengo in the semi-finals of the 2019 tournament, and Abdullah Al-Mayouf has not given up more than one goal all season.
After receiving a second caution early into extra time last weekend, Kanno will be suspended for this match. Meanwhile, Diaz made three additions to his starting eleven: Michael, Odion Ighalo, and Marega replaced Andre Carrillo, Saleh Al-Shehri, and Al-Hamdan.
