Our prediction for this FIFA Club World Cup match:
A spot in the FIFA Club World Cup semis will be at stake when Al Hilal and Al Jazira face each other at Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Al Hilal did well to win the 2021 Asian Champions League, and the bookies see them as favourites to win their FIFA Club World Cup opener as well. A man to watch in the home team will be former Porto attacker Moussa Marega, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
Al Jazira, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Al Hilal by beating Pirae of Tahiti 4-1. The UAE side impressed in the FIFA Club World Cup quarter-finals, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Sunday’s clash. In their last meeting in a competitive match Al Hilal defeated Al Jazira 1-0, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
