Real Madrid to Win and Lead at Half Time

Although Real Madrid has struggled a bit lately, which caused them to fall even more behind Barcelona in the title race, they are still clear favourites against Al Ahly, who is leading the league in Egypt and is without a loss in fifteen games.

So, things are pretty simple here – Real Madrid is a much better team on paper and despite those recent struggles and the fact that Benzema is out right now, our prediction is for Real Madrid to win this game after leading at half time.

Al Ahly vs Real Madrid Preview: Team News, Form, and Potential Lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Wednesday's DFB Pokal encounter between Dortmund and Bochum below.

Al Ahly

With eleven wins and four draws in fifteen matches in the Egyptian Premier League, Al Ahly is firmly in the first place in the standings, six points ahead of Pyramids FC and one game behind them too. So, it's looking very likely that the team will win the championship again, but their fans are probably hoping for a win over Real Madrid to boost the team's reputation even further.

When it comes to team news, Mostafa Shobeir, Karim Fouad, and Akram Tawfik are injured at the moment and will miss the upcoming duel with the European champions.

Al Ahly Predicted Lineup:

El Shenawy – Hany, Metwalli, Abdelmonem, Maaloul – Fathi, Dieng, El Solia – Tau, Sherif, Abdel Kader

Real Madrid

Things haven't been great for Real Madrid lately as the team lost twice in the last six games in La Liga, along with three wins and one draw. This led to them falling further behind Barcelona, who is now eight points ahead of their fierce rivals in the title race in Spain. On top of that, Real Madrid also lost to Barca in Spanish Super Cup last month, so they really need a good outcome at the FIFA Club World Cup to boos their confidence a bit.

On top of these shaky results, Real Madrid is also currently without their most important player, Karim Benzema. In addition to the Frenchmen, Ferland Mendy, Eden Hazard, Lucas Vazquez, Eder Militao and Thibaut Courtois are also on the team's injury list.

Real Madrid Predicted Lineup:

Lunin – Carvajal, Nacho, Rudiger, Alaba – Kroos, Tchouameni, Modric – Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr

Player to Watch: Vinicius Junior

With Karim Benzema likely missing this match, other offensive players at Real Madrid will have to take on more responsibility, so our player to watch in this match is Vinicius Junior.

The Brazilian forward is having another good season for Real Madrid. After all, he scored seven goals and added three assists in twenty appearances in La Liga so far. So, Al Ahly will have to find a way to stop him in this match if they want to have a chance to win.
