Kashima can be a threat for Real, like they were two years ago, but this time there's no C.Ronaldo.

Although Kashima were the underdog team in the tournament's quarter final, they managed to eliminate Guadalajara from Mexico. Their opponent opened the scorline in the very first minutes, due to their bad performance and they could have concede another goal before the halftime. However, they managed to tie at 49'. Finally they scored two more goals and secured their participation in the semifinal of FIFA Club World Cup. Mexicans scored another goal in the dying minutes, but that wasn't enough. Y.Suzuki, their best attacker, who was voted as the second best player in Asia in 2018, is injured. Brazilian midfielder Serginho is one player to watch out.
Real Madrid, who are the favorites tonight and have won the trophy the last two years, participate directly in the semifinals of the tournament. It's worth to mention that in their h2h semifinal of FIFA Club World Cup two years ago, Madrid won Kashima with difficulty (2-2 in regular time, 4-2 in extra time). Isco is going to resign in the next tranfer window and he won't perform tonight, as well as injured Nacho and G.Bale.
Kashima could be again a difficult opponent for Real, like they were two years ago when they scored their second goal (1-2) in the second half, but Ronaldo scored a hat trick and saved his team. However Ronaldo is not a part of Real anymore so everything could be possible. BTTS seems to be a pretty safe selection here.
