Real aiming to extend Club World Cup record

Meanwhile, Real Madrid will be aiming to add a fifth Club World Cup crown to their collection, albeit they could be without up to five first-team players due to injury.

The Spanish giants have won the competition more than any other team in the world following their previous triumphs in 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018, Marca reports.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have not been firing on all cylinders recently and must now find a way to navigate past Al Ahly without top stars like Benzema, Courtois, Alaba, and Militao.

The Brazilian star's mazy dribble left Axel Witsel on the floor, before Mario Hermoso also made a failed attempt to tackle the Brazilian.
