Al Ahly vs Real Madrid live stream: match preview
It's hard to imagine a more decorated FIFA Club World Cup semi-final than Al Ahly against Real Madrid. The Red Devils have won more Egyptian leagues, cups and CAF Champions Leagues than any other club, while los Blancos are a record 14-time European champions with 35 La Liga titles to boot. Both sides meet in search of a spot in Saturday's final to decide who is the best club side on Earth.
Though Al Ahly lost to Wydad Casablanca in the 2022 CAF Champions League final, the Egyptian giants have made it to the Club World Cup because a Moroccan team won that tournament and the Red Devils have taken the host nation spot.
The third-placed team from the 2021 tournament, Al Ahly have performed impressively in knocking out Auckland City and Seattle Sounders en route to the final four. The 42-time Egyptian champions, once home to Liverpool star Mo Salah, currently sit top of their domestic table, unbeaten after 15 league games, with top scorer Mohamed Sherif in fine form. Also attracting admiring glances is creative attacking midfielder Mohamed Magdy, who scored the late winner in the quarter-final victory over CONCACAF Champions League winners Seattle Sounders. Full of big-game experience, they aren't to be underestimated.
Real Madrid are old hands when it comes to the Club World Cup and its predecessor the Intercontinental Cup. They have seven wins across both iterations of the tournament, including a hat-trick of triumphs from 2016. Los Blancos beat Liverpool 1-0 in last summer's drab Champions League final, their 14th European crown, but have been curiously inconsistent in 2022/23 since losing their first league game of the season to Rayo Vallecano in early November.
Carlo Ancelotti's side have won just two La Liga games this calendar year and, though in the Copa del Rey semi-finals, are trying to find their best team. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Ballon d'Or-winning captain Karim Benzema have remained in Madrid for this last-four encounter with minor niggles, but will fly out to Morocco should their team-mates get the job done. Vinicius Junior's fine form continues, despite being the target for despicable racist abuse back in Spain, while former Arsenal loanee Dani Ceballos is also enjoying a good season.
