Weighed down by the exclusion of Gerson, Flamengo was surprised by Al-Hilal (2-3) on Tuesday in Morocco, and it is the Saudi team that will challenge the winner of Real Madrid-Al Ahly.
Small surprise: the winner of the Copa Libertadores did not beat the Asian champion in the semi-finals of the “2022” Club World Cup on Tuesday evening in Tangier. Al-Hilal won against Flamengo (2-3) and the Saudi team is waiting to play the final on Saturday against Real Madrid or Al-Ahly, opposed on Wednesday evening.
The Brazilian representative largely dominated the game but was weighed down by some of his players and in particular Gerson! The former Marseillais received a first warning for a simulation in the area (15th) before giving a penalty and seeing red at the same time, before halftime (45th + 8).
Salem Al Dawsari, the Saudi star who scored his country’s second magnificent goal against Argentina at the 2022 World Cup, opened the scoring from the penalty spot at the start of the match (4th) and did it again before returning to the locker room ( 45th+9).
Pedro had equalized for Flamengo (20th), but, 10 against 11, the Rubro-Negro took a 3rd goal, scored by Argentina’s Luciano Vietto (70th), and a 2nd goal from Pedro (91st) did not enough. Flamengo was counting on David Luiz, Gabigol or even Arturo Vidal!
