Fluminense vs Al Ahly team news

Fluminense

After winning the Copa Libertadores for the first time in history, Fluminense will now be looking to take the title of the world club champion, and the first step on that path is a duel with Al Ahly. Given that Fluminense's season has ended, they've had 11 days of rest to properly prepare for this tournament.

When it comes to team news, Jorge, the team's left-back on loan from Palmeiras, wasn't included in the squad due to injury.

Predicted LineupFabio – Guga, Melo, Nino, Marcelo – Martinelli, Andre – Arias, Keno, Ganso – Cano

Al Ahly

The Egyptian and African champions have certainly been the outsiders in the quarter-finals of the FIFA Club World Cup against Saudi Arabian Al Ittihad, especially with the tournament being held in Jeddah.

However, Al Ahly proved that their mettle and pretty confidently dispatched Saudi Arabian champions led by big names like Karim Benzema, Ngolo Kante, and Fabinho.

Meanwhile, Anthony Modeste will miss this game after being sent off late in that quarter-final.

Predicted LineupEl Shenawy – Hany, Abdelmonem, Ibrahim, Maaloul – Kouka, Ashour, Ateya – Tau, Kahraba, El Shahat
