Qatar 2019 FIFA Club World Cup Match Fixture for Saturday 14th Dec. 2019.


2nd round: Al-Hilal SFC (Asia) v Espérance (Africa) (3pm), Monterrey (CONCACAF) v Al-Sadd SC (Asia) (6:30pm)

African champions Espérance take the first step towards honours in Qatar as they confront Asian champions Al-Hilal SFC from Saudi Arabia.

This is Espérance’s third appearance in this competition. They finished sixth in 2011 and fifth last year.

Among African qualifiers, only DR Congo’s TP Mazembe (2010) and Raja Casablanca of Morocco (2013) have reached the final, losing to Internazionale Milan and Bayern München respectively.

Espérance’s opponents Al-Hilal are making their debut at the competition in which Asia representatives have also reached the final twice, just like Africa. It was Kashima Antlers (Japan) in 2016 and Al-Ain (UAE) in the last edition.

The victorious side between Espérance and Al-Hilal will face South America’s Flamengo in the semifinal, while either CONCACAF’s Monterrey or another Asian team Al-Sadd SC will take on European champions Liverpool at the same stage.
