Real Madrid face Kashima Antlers in the 2018 FIFA Club World Cup Semifinals this Wednesday. The Japanese team took care of business in the Quarterfinals and even though Madrid are considered the favorites to come out of this tie and play in the match for the title, Solari’s men have to take the game very seriously if they want to avoid any kind of scare.
Real Madrid might have to be without both Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio in this game. Both players missed Tuesday’s training session and appear to be recovering from small injuries, so Solari should not take any chances and trust his bench today.
Other than that, this is a good opportunity for Madrid to gain some confidence and win the first title of the season ahead of what will be a very intense second half of the campaign with the team competing with Barcelona and Atletico de Madrid for La Liga title.
