Today's Predictions for Al Ahly vs Flamengo

Al Ahly and Flamengo battle it out for the right to finish in third spot in this year’s FIFA Club World Cup in Morocco. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Both Teams to Score

Al Ahly and Flamengo conceded seven goals between them in their FIFA Club World Cup semi-final tussles with Real Madrid and Al Hilal respectively in midweek, and we don’t expect either defence to finish Saturday’s third-place playoff with a clean sheet. Both teams showcased some rash defending when they were toppled during the week, and that suggests chances to register should be plentiful at either end at the Stade Prince Moulay Abdallah. With that considered, our first prediction advises a stake on both teams to score.

Over 2.5 Goals

An exciting skirmish could be in store for supporters attending the Stade Prince Moulay Abdallah on Saturday for Al Ahly’s clash with Flamengo. Both of the team’s semi-final fixtures produced five goals and the mix of haphazard defending and incisive attacking on show on Wednesday evening provided plenty of compelling evidence to indicate a high-scoring contest could be in the works this weekend. With that in mind, backing over 2.5 goals to hit the net again could be a smart move.

Al Ahly vs Flamengo Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Saturday’s FIFA Club World Cup showdown between Al Ahly and Flamengo below.

Al Ahly

Al Ahly Head Coach Marcelo Koller sent his team out in a conservative 4-4-1-1 shape against Real Madrid, and to their credit, the Egyptians made a game of it before two late goals from Los Blancos added gloss to the scoreline. Al Ahly might set up with more attacking intent on Saturday, though the personnel should largely be the same.

Predicted Lineup for Al Ahly: El Shenawy – Hany, Metwalli, Abdelmonem, Maaloul – El Shahat, El Soleya, Dieng, Radwan – Magdi Kafsha, Sherif

Flamengo

Flamengo were far too aggressive in their loss to Al Hilal in midweek, and they had seven players booked and one sent off in their 3-2 loss. Midfielder Gerson was handed his marching orders late in the first half and he will be suspended for Saturday's game as a consequence. Eric Pulgar is in line to replace him.

Predicted Lineup for Flamengo: Santos – Matheuzinho, Luiz, Pereira, Lucas – Maia, Pulgar, Riberio, de Arrascaeta – Barbosa, Pedro

Player to Watch – Pedro

Flamengo striker Pedro left everything on the pitch in midweek and the 25-year-old managed to score both of his team’s goals in their 3-2 loss to Al Hilal. Pedro now has a taste for scoring on the biggest stage and the centre-forward will be aiming to fill his boots again when he lines up against Al Ahly on Saturday.
