Liverpool to face Monterrey in Club World Cup semifinal

15 Décembre, 2019, 07:05 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

CONCACAF champions Monterrey have defeated Al Sadd 3-2 to book a place in the Club World Cup semi-finals against European champions Liverpool.

The stadium was only half full, a similar problem to that which dogged the recent world athletics championships held in Qatar, which will also host the 2022 World Cup.

The Mexicans hit the crossbar early on and went ahead when Leonel Vangioni collected the ball in midfield, took one touch and rifled a left-foot shot into the top-right hand corner of the net from 35 metres in the 23rd minute.

Vangioni struck a left-footed shot from 30 yards in off the post on 23 minutes to open the scoring, with Rogelio Funes Mori extending the lead in first-half injury time and young Mexico worldwide Carlos Rodriguez adding the third 13 minutes from the end.

But Al-Sadd started the second half brightly, taking control of possession and pulled a goal back when Bounedjah headed in from a right-wing cross.

The Mexican team plays Liverpool on December 18, with South American champion Flamengo taking on Al Hilal a day earlier.

Former Swansea City striker Bafetembi Gomis got the game's only goal in the 73rd minute, although Hilal did finish the game with 10 men after Mohammed Kanoo picked up a second booking in the 85th minute.

Carlos Rodriguez then added a third for Monterrey in the 77th minute, before Abdelkarim Hassan pulled another back for Al Sadd in the 89th minute with a similar effort to Vangioni's to ensure a nervy finale for the Mexicans.

The first semi-final on Tuesday will feature Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal against Flamengo of Brazil.
