Urawa Red Diamonds vs Man City team news

Urawa Red Diamonds

While the Japanese champions entered their match with Club Leon in the FIFA Club World Cup quarter-finals as slight outsiders, they managed to reach the semis thanks to a late goal by Alex Schalk. However, Urawa Red Diamonds didn't really have a great season as they failed to reach the AFC Champions League playoffs and they only finished fourth in the J-League.

When it comes to team news, Takahiro Akimoto, Takahiro Sekine, and Tomoaki Okubo were all subbed in the match against Club Leon due to injuries and they are unlikely to be ready for this game.

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

Man City

Despite a two-goal lead they had over Crystal Palace at home over the weekend, Man City failed to hold on to this advantage and they ended up only winning a point from that game. This was their fourth draw in six games in the Premier League and they are now five points behind league leaders Arsenal.

So, winning the FIFA Club World Cup for the first time ever would boost the Citizens' confidence right now.

Meanwhile, Kevin De Bruyne, Erling Haaland, and Jeremy Doku are all still nursing injuries, and while they are with the team, it's hard to see them playing in this match.

Predicted LineupOrtega – Lewis, Akanji, Stones, Gomez – Kovacic, Nunes – Bobb, Silva, Grealish – Alvarez

Player to watch: Jack Grealish

With three goals in the last five Man City matches across the board, Jack Grealish seems to be in very good form at the moment. So, with Haaland likely out for this game too, we can see him doing well once again.
