Urawa Red Diamonds vs Al Ahly team news

Urawa Red Diamonds

After beating Club Leon in quarter-finals, Urawa Red Diamonds have failed to put up a serious fight against Man City in the semi-finals. That wasn't really surprising as the European champions were clearly the favourites in that game, but Urawa's fans certainly hoped for a bit better performance from their team.

On the bright side, Urawa don't have any injury issues ahead of this match.

Predicted LineupNishikawa – Sekine, Hoibraten, Scholz, Ogiwara – Ito, Iwao – Yasui, Schalk, Koizumi – Kante

Al Ahly

After an impressive performance against Al Ittihad, Al Ahly failed to bring the same energy and quality against Fluminense. The South African champions didn't have much trouble against Al Ahly in that game, which is why we will once again see the Egyptian team in the third-place match instead of the final game, for the third time in the last four FIFA Club World Cups.

Meanwhile, Anthony Modeste will be back in the team after missing the semi-final game through suspension, while Ahmed Kouka might be included in the starting lineup after sitting out the last match with a knock.

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

Confirmed Urawa Red Diamonds vs Al Ahly lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch: Percy Tau

While Percy Tau has failed to score a goal in this tournament so far, he is one of Al Ahly's top scorers overall. After all, the South African forward did score 4 goals for his team in their domestic championship, so we can see him doing well in this match too.
