Al Jazira vs Real Madrid – FIFA Club World Cup : Very fierce, Al Jazira plays in their own country with the motivation to try and surprise the giant Real Madrid
But besides their technical limitations, that were clear in their matches against Auckland and Urawa, the team will have to overcome the great fatigue that they suffered in the two previous matches, where they had to work really hard to advance.
The team doesn’t have any great technical reference, since their best player is the ex-Corinthians Romarinho, and because of that, not much should scare the Galacticos in this match,
with Al Jazira probably trying to defend as hard as they can to then surprise in the 2nd half, but this lack of quality in causing threats to the Spaniards is a big disadvantage for their defensive system,
that will need to stop players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Isco, etc., while not being reliable.
Real Madrid: After going through a shaky period, Real Madrid was able to string together two great performances against Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla,
where they were devastating in the first half in both occasions, having scored twice against Dortmund and 5 times against Sevilla, and I believe that Zidane will keep that strategy here,
because by opening up an advantage in the 1st half, they can then managed that lead and conserve their energy better during the match, which is the manager’s intention.
Al Jazira vs Real Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I find it very hard for Real Madrid not to score 2 or more goals during the first 45 minutes, and even harder for them to score none,
so I consider these odds very good for this Handicap, that will only be totally lost if Al Jazira is able to gather enough strength to stop the Spaniards during the 1st half, which I find unlikely.
