Real Madrid vs Al Ahly live score, updates, highlights & lineups from FIFA Club World Cup semifinal

Real Madrid make their entrance into the 2022 FIFA Club World Cup at the semifinal stage with Carlo Ancelotti’s side facing off with Al Ahly in Rabat.

Los Blancos are the most successful team in the competition’s history, with four titles, including success under Ancelotti back in 2014.

However, they have been hit by some key injury absences ahead of their first appearance in the competition since 2018, with Thibaut Courtois, Karim Benzema and Eder Militao all left behind in Madrid.

Al Ahly have been the surprise package of the tournament so far, after receiving a late call up due to Wydad Casablanca being nominated as the host nation’s representative, with wins over Auckland City and Seattle Sounders.

Saudi Arabian giants Al Hilal await the winners in the final after they edged past Flamengo in the first semifinal game.

The Sporting News will be providing live updates and highlights for Real Madrid vs Al Ahly in their last four clash at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium.
