Our prediction for this FIFA Club World Cup match:
All eyes will be on Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo when Palmeiras and Tigres face each other in the FIFA Club World Cup semis. Palmeiras did well to beat Santos in the Copa Libertadores final, with Breno scoring the winner in the ninth minute of the stoppage time. The Brazilians are high on confidence ahead of their FIFA Club World Cup opener, but the game against Tigres will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
Former Olympique Marseille attacker Gignac scored a brace to help Tigres beat Ulsan in the quarter-finals, and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the French veteran when the two teams face each other at Allianz Parque. Ricardo Ferretti’s troops proved their worth in the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium clash, and they are surely capable of matching Palmeiras behind closed doors. A close encounter is on the cards in Sao Paulo, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
