Ah Ahly vs. Palmeiras Match Analysis and Prediction

Ah Ahly and Palmeiras look to end their World Club Cup campaign on a high this Thursday afternoon for a spot in third place. The match schedules at the Education City Stadium with kickoff at 6 pm.

Ah, Ahly lost out to Bayern Munich in the semi-finals while Palmeiras suffered a surprise defeat at the hands of Mexican side Tigres.

Palmeiras were seen as the favorites to give Bayern Munich a run for their money in the World Club Cup finals. This is mostly coming after their success in the Copa Libertadores last month.

However, a second-half penalty converted by Andre-Pierre Gignac earned the Tigres a famous 1-0 win on Monday. The loss ended Palmeira’s hopes of lifting the trophy on their first appearance in the competition.

Even though a loss to the Mexican outfit does not take away their previous triumphs, it becomes upset. Abel Ferreira must find a way to lift the group of players, the whose only win in six matches is their victory Santos in the Copa Libertadores final.

Despite conceding twice against Bayern Munich, Al Ahly have nine clean sheets from their 12 last encounters in all competitions. Pitso Mosimane would have pleased the team’s performance against the Champions League winners.

Ah Ahly has only one defeat in six attempts, a streak that happened back in 2006 when they got the better of Club America.
