Our football match prediction:
By beating Al Ain in the Asian Champions League final Jeonbuk Motors booked their place in the FIFA Club World Cup quarter-finals. The South Korea outfit face a difficult task in Sunday’s football game against Club America, but they will certainly leave their hearts on the field. The Green Warriors finished the K League in second place in the standings, no less than three points behind champions Seoul, meaning that they should not be written off just yet. Club America occupy fifth place in the Liga MX table and they are on a 12-game unbeaten run in the national championship ahead of their FIFA Club World Cup opener. Both teams are likely to adopt a cautious approach in Sunday’s showdown and we predict that under 2.5 goals will be scored in the Suita City Football Stadium clash. When the two teams met in the competition ten years ago the Mexicans emerged triumphant (1-0).
Highlighted Team (Club America):
Over the years Club America have established themselves as one of the best teams in Mexico. Los Aguilas (the Eagles) welcome their opponents at Estadio Azteca and the capacity of the stadium is 87.000. Estadio Azteca is the biggest stadium in Mexico. America were found on October 12, 1916 and they have been playing an important role in Mexican football ever since. In 2014 Club America won their 12th league trophy. Los Aguilas clinched the Apertura title, which is the first championship of the season. Club America have seven CONCACAF Champions’ Cup trophies as well and in 1990 they won their second Copa Interamericana title. Former Real Madrid striker Hugo Sanchez is probably the most notable footballer who played for the club in the past. Sanchez made 29 league appearances for Club America in the 1992/1993 season and he scored 11 goals for the Mexican team. The club’s home colours are yellow and white, whilst the colour of the team’s away kit is dark red.
