The impressive final in Madrid had a huge winner this time. River Plate won the Copa Libertadores trophy against their rivals Boca Juniors. The match had to be played for 120', as there was no winner in the regular time (1-1). The 'millionaires' won the trophy scoring twice in the extra time (3-1). A few days later, River Plate represent Latin America in FIFA Club World Cup, straight to this semifinal, being the favorites against the host team Al Ain. Attacker I.Scocco is still out due to his injury, as he was in the big final of Copa Libertadores.
Al Ain won 3-0 in the quarterfinal against the representative of Africa, Esperance. It was an easy win for them, after scoring two goals in the first quarter of the game. They left the possession of the ball to their opponents, however, they didn't concede any goals since the team from Tunisia missed their chances. Al Ain scored their third goal at the 60th minute and widen their impressive win. International Swedish attacker M.Berg performed in the last 10' of the match.
River Plate are the favorites for sure and have a clear head start to qualify in the final of the tournament. However, Al Ain will play aggressively and having the support of their fans, they could score at least once, trying to get the best positive result. BTTS is my call, the odds are quite attractive and double our stake.
