This Tuesday 17th of December, Brazilian Flamengo and Al-Hilal from Saudi Arabia will meet in the semi-finals of the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup.
Flamengo won their spot in this competition after a late epic comeback in the Final of the Conmebol’s Libertadores Cup, where they defeated the titleholders, River Plate (ARG), with a 2-1 score. Meanwhile, the Asian champions reached this stage by defeating the African champions, Esperance Tunis, from Tunisia, with the only goal scored by the experienced striker Gomis.
Both teams are living a tremendous moment now. The “Fla” are the undisputed champions of the Brazilian First Division, where they outpointed their rivals and ended up with a 16-point distance from the 2nd place. On the other hand, Al-Hilal are currently in 3rd place in the Saudi Professional League, 3 points away from the leaders, but with 2 games less.
The main difference I see between these two teams is the attacking potential: Flamengo scored 2.27 goals per game and received 0.95, as well as they got an astonishing +49 goal average, what is hard to achieve in a league with hard teams as Santos, Sao Paulo and Corinthians, among others. The Arabians have scored 2.89 goals per match and have received 1.2 so far, with a +15 goal average, but their league is not as challenging as the Brazilian one. I will go this time with the Brazilian squad in the Asian Handicap market. I think Flamengo -1.0 provides an odd of 1.72, which is a good value and an outcome likely to happen.
