Real Madrid face local team Al Ain in the 2018 FIFA Club World Cup Final. Los Blancos have won two straight Club World Cup titles and appear to be set to conquer their third consecutive, given how favored they are to beat Al Ain tonight.
Marco Asensio will not be available in this game after picking up a hamstring injury during the Semifinal against Kashima Antlers. Still, coach Santiago Solari has a healthy squad at his disposal and Los Blancos completed a very solid performance with a hat-trick by Gareth Bale, who is in good form after a small ankle injury.
Solari could afford to make some rotations here, but given that this is his first chance to win a title at Real Madrid, he will be expected to start his best lineup even if some players might be looking forward to the upcoming Christmas break. Casemiro could return to the starting lineup.
