Palmeiras vs Al Ahly
World – FIFA Club World Cup
Date: Tuesday, 8 February 2022
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Al Nahyan Stadium.
These two teams are here to take part in the Club World Cup for the second year in succession. Which means, the two squads pulled off the admirable achievement of defending their continental titles.
Last year, Palmeiras and Al Ahly had locked horns in the Match for Third Place. The game ended goalless at the end of regular time and extra time, and the latter proceeded to secure the third position via penalties.
And this time around, the two will once again meet each other on the pitch in the semi-final. Expect a nervous encounter this Tuesday, especially since a ticket to the final is at stake.
The expectation is that the squads will be extremely cautious – at least in the first half.
