Real Madrid overtakes Al Ahly to reach Club World Cup final

Real Madrid reached the Club World Cup final after goals from Vinicius Jr, Federico Valverde, Rodrygo and Sergio Arribas secured a 4-1 win over Egypt’s Al Ahly in Morocco on Wednesday.

Playing without several key starters like forward Karim Benzema and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, Real Madrid experienced a home field environment, with the local fans turning up the noise at the sold-out Prince Moulay Abdallah stadium in Rabat.

The white Real Madrid jerseys outnumbered Al Ahly’s red by a huge margin and the Morocco fans even displayed a giant banner in support of the Spanish giants, creating a vibrant atmosphere and a din that is rare for a Club World Cup in what was supposed to be a neutral stadium.

They struggled to break the deadlock, however, against Al Ahly’s well organised defence, with the Egyptians threatening on the counter-attack.
