The Monterrey, last test for Xavi before Liverpool

Both Al Sadd and Monterrey do not arrive at their best of the season (18:30). The winner of Liverpool Klopp awaits.


After eliminating with more problems than expected the champion of Oceania - he needed an extension after finishing the game with a 1-1 draw - Xavi's Al Sadd will face Mexican Monterrey today in the quarterfinals of the Club World Cup. A match that is the prelude to a semifinal against in theory the best team on the planet, Liverpool, by Jürgen Klopp. The winner will see them with the current European champion next Wednesday, December 18,

Both Al Sadd and Monterrey do not arrive at their best of the season. The Qatari team, after a spectacular start conquering the Qatar Super Cup and reaching the semifinals of the Asian Champions League, has seen how the last results in the League relegated him to fourth place eleven points behind his head, although it is true that it counts with two games postponed, while the Aztecs of Monterrey are far from the top positions in their League: eighth to ten points from the first.

So, the match is presented to both teams as a balm to heal their wounds. Whoever passes the semifinals will have the opportunity to expose himself to the best team on the planet.

The other quarterfinal will be played between the Asian champion, Saudi Al Hilal, and the African, the Tunisians of Espérance. The winner will face the Brazilian Flamengo in the semifinals.
