Real Madrid vs Al-Hilal live stream: match preview

Real Madrid and Al-Hilal do battle tonight in the FIFA Club World Cup final for the right to call themselves the best club side on the planet. Los Blancos are old hands in occasions such as this, but their Saudi opponents have taken their international success at Qatar 2022 into this tournament and have already disposed of Flamengo en route to the final. This promises to be a fascinating encounter with plenty at stake.

Al-Hilal produced one of the biggest upsets in Club World Cup history on Tuesday night with their thrilling 3-2 victory over Brazilian giants Flamengo. The reigning Copa Libertadores champions were humbled by the Saudi Arabian side, who earned their spot in this tournament as the most recent winners of the AFC Champions League in 2021, with the current edition due to finish in April. Al-Hilal may only sit fourth in their domestic league, where they are this season's draw specialists, but Ramon Diaz's side have impressed in Morocco and had already knocked out CAF Champions League winners Wydad Casablanca in the quarter-finals. Salem Al-Dawsari, who scored Saudi Arabia's memorable winner against Argentina at the World Cup, struck twice against Flamengo and the attacking midfielder is in fine form. Mohamed Kanno is back from suspension from this one and should return to the starting line-up.

Real Madrid were at their efficient best in disposing of Al Ahly in their 4-1 semi-final win on Wednesday. Though the Egyptians pulled the score back to 2-1 with a second-half penalty, Los Blancos' superior quality and game management saw the 14-time European champions home with goals from Vinicius Jr, Federico Valverde, Rodrygo and youngster Sergio Arribas. Carlo Ancelotti again looks likely to be without goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Karim Benzema, according the Spanish radio reports, and it remains to be seen if Dani Ceballos' excellent cameo from the bench against Al Ahly is enough to give the Spaniard a start in the final. Inconsistent in La Liga, Madrid are in a league of their own when it comes to winning single-game showpiece events and won't be taking this one lightly.

Real Madrid vs Al-Hilal kicks off at 7pm GMT / 2pm EST, Saturday 11th February, at Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium, Rabat, Morocco. Morocco. It's free to watch Australia. Make sure you know how to watch a Real Madrid vs Al-Hilal live stream from anywhere
