Spanish Real Madrid advanced to the final match in the FIFA Club World Cup - which is currently being held in Morocco - after its 4-1 victory over Al-Ahly of Egypt in the semi-finals of the competition.
Despite the great victory of Real, it did not express the real course of the meeting, as Al-Ahly was a real match for the royal team, which threatened its goal on more than one opportunity.
The experience of the Spanish club's stars decided the situation in his favor in the end, depriving the Century Club in Africa of a historic Arab final in the tournament.
Brazilian Vinicius Junior scored for Real Madrid in the 42nd minute, before Uruguayan Federico Valverde added the second goal in the 47th minute.
Real Madrid is harsh on Al-Ahly of Egypt and qualifies to face Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia in the Club World Cup final 🏆

Tunisian Ali Maaloul ensured that Al-Ahly scored the only goal in the 65th minute from a penalty kick, before Brazilian Rodrigo added the third goal for the royal team in the third minute of calculated time instead of lost for the second half, making up for the penalty kick missed by Croatian star Luka Modric in the 86th minute.
(Substitute) Sergio Arbias ended the Real Madrid goal festival in the meeting, by scoring the fourth goal in the eighth minute of lost time.
Real Madrid set a date in the final match next Saturday with Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia, who beat Brazilian Flamengo 3-2.
On the other hand, Al-Ahly will play with Flamengo in the third and fourth place match on the same day.
