This will only be their third overall meeting. An interesting fact is that at the moment, there are no favorites in head-to-head clashes, as both Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia and Al Ahly of Egypt are yet to grab at least one triumph to this day, for their two previous duels have ended in a draw.
Their most recent game took place on January 11, 2013, and it ended in a thrilling 1-1 tie in a Club Friendly match. It promises to be an even more exciting clash as they meet for the first time in nine years, this time to determine who will finish third at the 2021 Club World Cup.
Al Hilal opened the tournament on high thanks to their 6-1 trashing over Al Jazira in the Second Round. However, they fell the Semi-Finals test, losing 1-0 to reigning UEFA Champions League winners Chelsea. Meanwhile, Al Ahly set up a meeting with Leonardo Jardim’s players in the Third Place Playoff after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Palmeiras. Previously, The Red Devils were the better side of the Second Round clash against Monterrey with a final result of 1-0.
These opponents don’t have a long history of clashes as their first one dates back to April 3, 2004, and it finished with a disappointing goalless 0-0 draw in Group 2 of the 2003/04 Arab Club Champions Cup. Thanks to this exciting clash, we will see which claim the third position in the latest edition of the FIFA Club World Cup.
After dominating against Al Jazira in the second round with a 6-1 victory, Al Hilal ran into UEFA representative Chelsea in the semifinals, which resulted in a 1-0 loss.
The situation in the last round was similar for Al Ahly, as it took on CONMEBOL team Palmeiras, losing 2-0. The team began the tournament with a 1-0 win over Monterrey.
Al Ahly played in this game in 2020, defeating Palmeiras on penalties after a 0-0 draw to win third place. Al Hilal played in the third-place game in 2019, drawing Monterrey 2-2 but losing in penalty kicks to finish in fourth place.
