Our prediction for this FIFA Club World Cup match:
Khalifa International Stadium will host the FIFA Club World Cup third place play-off. The Mexican side were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Liverpool after 90 minutes, but the Reds eventually scored the winner in the stoppage time to set up a meeting with Flamengo in the title game. The CONCACAF Champions League winners are now on a quest to win the bronze medal at the tournament in Qatar, and they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s football game against Al Hilal.
The Saudis, on the other hand, suffered a 3-1 loss to Flamengo in the semis, and, to make things even worse for the fans, midfielder Andre Carrillo was sent off in the dying minutes of the match. Seeing that the Peru international missed the Monterrey game through suspension, we are tempted to put our money on Antonio Mohamed’s charges.
Highlighted Player (André Carrillo):
Born in Lima on June 14 1991, Andre Carrillo is Peruvian footballer who began his youth career at Esther Grande. Carrillo then moved to Alianza Lima where he scored 3 goals in 21 appearances in the league at senior level. Andre Carrillo then decided to take a step forward in his career as he signed a deal with a famous Portuguese club Sporting CP in 2011.
Five years later he joined the Lions’ bitter local rivals Benfica, but he made no more than 20 appearances in the league with the Eagles. In 2017 he joined Watford on loan and he has been for the Premier League side ever since. The Peruvian footballer scored one goal in 28 appearances for the Hornets in the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign.
Carrillo scored his first goal for the club in a 2-1 loss to Swansea City in December 2017. His main position is winger, but is capable of playing as a secondary striker as well.
