Our prediction for this FIFA Club World Cup match:
A place in the FIFA Club World Cup semis will be at stake when Tigres and Ulsan Hyundai face each other at Ahmed bin Ali Stadium on Thursday afternoon. The Mexican club have been having their ups and downs at the start of Clausura, with the team sitting in sixth position in the standings ahead of the FIFA Club World Cup clash. Anyhow, since both Gonzalez and Andre-Pierre Gignac return to contention, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the nominal hosts.
The South Korean side have not been in action since December, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Ricardo Ferretti’s troops. Shin Hyung-min is likely to make his Ulsan Hyundai debut against Tigres, while new signing Lukas Hinterseer should start from the bench. The two teams meet for the first time ever in a competitive match.
