Our prediction for this FIFA Club World Cup match:
Esperance de Tunis and Guadalajara take on each other at Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in the FIFA Club World Cup fifth place play-off. Esperance de Tunis aim to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Al Ain, but they are considered underdogs in Tuesday’s football match. Guadalajara, on the other hand, did well to take the lead in the quarter-finals against Kashima Antlers, but the J-League side eventually came from behind and booked their place in the FIFA Club World Cup semis. Anyhow, the two teams have nothing to lose in the fifth place play-off and we predict that both sides are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium clash. A lively contest is on the cards and we are positive that both teams are going to find the net in their last game at the prestigious tournament.
Highlighted Player (Taha Yassine Khenissi):
Taha Yassine Khenissi is a Tunisian footballer who plays for Esperance de Tunis as a forward. Khenissi was born in Zarzis, Tunisia on January 6, 1992 and he began his senior career at Esperance de Tunis at the age of 17. The Tunisian player wears No. 29 jersey and his main position is centre-forward. His secondary position is second striker.
Taha Yassine Khenissi won the CAF Champions League title with Esperance de Tunis, with the team beating Al-Ahly in the final of the competition. The 180-cm tall striker scored 6 goals in 29 appearances for the Tunisia national team. It has to be noted that he scored for Tunisia in a 4-2 win over Zimbabwe at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
He played for the national team in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers as well, but he failed to find the net. His contract with Esperance de Tunis should expire on June 30, 2021. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Chivas Guadalajara):
Founded on May 8, 1906, Club Deportivo Guadalajara are a Mexican club that are one of the ten founding members of the Mexican First Division. Las Chivas have never dropped to the Mexican second tier and it has to be noted that they are one of only two teams who managed to do so.
CD Guadalajara play their home games at Estadio Akron, the stadium that can hold up to 46,232 spectators. Las Chivas wear white shirts with red stripes and dark blue shorts when hosting their rivals, whilst the team away colour is white with little dark blue and red. The Mexican side has 12 Liga MX titles, but winning of CONCACAF Champions League in both 1962 and 2018 is considered the club’s biggest success.
CD Guadalaraja did well to beat Toronton in the 2018 CONCACAF Champions League final and, as a result, they booked their place at the 2018 FIFA Club World Cup in United Arab Emirates.
