Al Jazira v Real Madrid Betting Tips & Predictions | FIFA Club World Cup Match Previews.
13th December 2017 – 17:00, Sheikh Zayed Sports City, Abu Dhabi.
Match Preview & Team News
Real Madrid arrived in UAE high on confidence after demolishing Sevilla 5-0 in a buoyant form at Santiago Bernabeu last weekend. The European champions will now try and do what no team has ever done before – retain the FIFA Club World Cup trophy. As you all know, Los Blancos became the first side to defend the UEFA Champions League trophy last season and there are no doubts Zinedine Zidane’s men will be highly motivated to get yet another silverware this week.
The first of two obstacles for the Spanish champions is a surprising one, as they are to play the local side Al Jazira who were underdogs in both of their previous rounds’ ties with New Zealand’s Auckland and Japanese Urawa Red Diamonds.
Nonetheless, the Dutch manager Henk ten Cate prepared a beautiful park the bus formation which saw his side keep clean sheets in both of the mentioned victories. The Brazilian midfielder Romarinho played the pivotal role in the transition and counter-attacks, while Madrid’s defenders will have to keep a special eye on Ali Ahmed Mabkhout who notched seven goals in seven matches in the domestic league for the hosts.
Zidane, on the other side, will be able to count on Daniel Carvajal, Sergio Ramos and Casemiro who were all suspended for the mentioned La Liga tie with Sevilla. Cristiano Ronaldo will obviously lead the way up front, while Zidane might join him the recovered Gareth Bale in the final third. The Portuguese superstar just enjoys the big scene and we feel he might shine in this semifinal.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Real Madrid are obviously massive favourites and we believe they will ease past their UAE rivals in the semis. The main pick is Real Madrid -2.5 handicap at the odds of 4/7.
Goal Scorers Market Prediction
Cristiano Ronaldo to score two or more goals is a bet worth a punt given his motivation to shine at the biggest stage.
