Al Ahly are almost FIFA World Club Cup regulars, with 3 appearances and a creditable 3rd place finish in 2008. The club from Egypt have had a really tough year after the game in Port Said where over 70 fans died after crowd trouble. The Egyptian league was cancelled and Al Ahly found the majority of its team ready to disband and move abroad. After a decision to carry on in continental competition in the name of the fans. They had a real determination to succeed and they powered their way to the title. That was their 7th CAF Champions League win and is a record for Africa. Al Ahly are a very fast and physical team, they have a great spirit and are playing with massive heart. Big players for the team are international captain Mohamed Aboutreika and striker Geddo. Al Ahly had to do without influential central midfielder Hossam Ghaly for the last hour after he was stretchered off with an injury. His replacement was club legend Aboutreika who arguably galvanised the side. Him scoring the winner was no surprise given his status at the Egyptian giants.

Corinthians are a previous World Club Cup winner having taken the trophy in 2000. They come off a difficult season in Brazil Serie A were they found it difficult to concentrate on league matters due to participation in the Copa Libertadores. A tournament they won for the first time in 2012. Corinthians play with a distinct style, the side are known for their ability to close down opposing teams whenever they lose possession and for launching fast, direct attacks when they regain it. Three players have left the side,centre-half Leandro Castan, midfielder Alex and front man Liedson. Signed to replace them are Anderson Polga, Argentinian attacking midfielder Juan Martinez; and Peruvian striker Paolo Guerrero. Key men for Corinthians are central midfielder Paulinho and attacking midfielder Danilo. This quote from coach Tite underlines how important this is to the Brazilians "We believe in working as hard as is necessary. If we have to break a leg, we will. If we have to play dirty, we will. I have all of these options at my disposal. I just have to choose which one I’m going to use.”


1.55 Corinthians (Interwetten) is the selection in this game. This will be a very close game even though the prices are so short. Corinthians will boss this for sure but Al Ahly will give a good account of themselves. Corininthians are several levels above Al Ahly and will dominate the play. I expect a low scoring win for the Brazilians and advise an early bet with Interwetten who are giving 1.55. With odds as short as 1.40 on Corinithians I expect the price to disappear soon enough.

Corinthians -1 is the selection here at 1.77 (Pinnacle) Corinthians go into this game fresh and have the extra legs on Al Ahly. The Egyptian side had a tough 90 minutes against Sanfrecce on Sunday and that could be a big factor. The importance of this game to the Brazilians cannot be underestimated as the fans back home expect them to return with the trophy for the 2nd time. Corinthians are a much better side than Al Ahly but I do not expect a rout here. The odds are very short however on the Brazilians so a -1 handicap is selected. If Corinthians only manage a 1 goal win stakes are returned..

Under 2.50 goals is the selection at 2.05 (WillHill). These World Club matches are such high stakes games that the unders is always a great bet. Nobody wants to take chances and both sides will be aiming for minimum risk. The low odds on Corinthians means overs are favoured but I don’t think it will go over. The Brazilians style is to contain and although they do contain loads of attacking talent do not expect them to run riot. Al Ahly will defend deep for sure and I can see them aiming for a draw and trying to nick a penalty shootout win.
