The FIFA Club World Cup final between Chelsea and Palmeiras is currently being broadcast live from the Mohammad Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
The big day has arrived for both teams, who have the chance to write their names in the history books by becoming the first English Premier League team to win the FIFA Club World Cup. The Blues from the English Premier League will be making their second appearance after their first appearance didn’t go well in the final.
So much is expected to happen here as we wait for kickoff between both sides, who have already made their way inside the stadium and are getting set to start the game, which will see one of two of the best teams in the world here tonight of all nights, one of the two of them will be able to add their names to the record books.
CHELSEA’S STARTING XI
Edouard Mendy; Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen; Cesar Azpilicueta, NGolo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Callum Hudson Odoi; Mason Mount, Kai Havertz; Romelu Lukaku.
PLAMEIRAS STARTING XI
Weverton; Marcos Rocha, Luan Garcia, Gustavo Gomez, Joaquin Piquerez; Dudu, Ze Rafael, Gustavo Scarpa, Raphael Veiga, Danilo; Rony.
With so much quality being paraded on the pitch and everything on the table, any side that turns up the most will find itself earning the maximum result after 90 minutes of play, or we will have to wait until penalties or extra time.
The players are already making their way onto the field, as the game is expected to begin at any moment between them, as the stadium is crowded with anticipation as all eyes are on the referee, who has yet to get things started as they wait for the procedures to be completed before they can take off here tonight.
Chelsea’s last trip to the FIFA Club World Cup was uneventful, but after all of their efforts, Brazilian side Corinthians defeated them by a narrow 1-0 score, leaving the Blues fighting until the final whistle, but nothing worked out for them as they pushed with missed opportunities until the end of the 90 minutes, losing the title.
Palmeiras will be hoping for the same thing, but it won’t be easy against a side that is eager and hungry to make this one count, knowing that this is their one chance to add to their trophy cabinet, which already contains all of the trophies required for a football club to win in Europe.
The Brazilian team has the advantage going into this match against the English, who have only managed one win against them, compared to two for the Brazilians, who beat Liverpool and Chelsea, and one loss, which came against the Reds, who were led by a German, Jorgen Klopp.
Thomas Tuchel, a German who recently joined the squad after completing isolation and testing negative for covid, may be able to take over from his assistant.
