Real Madrid comprehensively beat Al Ahly 4-1 to reach the final of the FIFA Club World Cup with goals from Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Fede Valverde and yougnster Serigo Arribas.

Al Ahly enjoyed a very good spell in the latter part of the first half and put together some nice passing moves, but Real Madrid struck just before the break to take the wind out their sails.

In the 42nd min Vinicius made a good interception high up the park and broke through on goal before dinking over the keeper. The European champions were now on top and began the second half as they finished the first.

Inside a minute after the restart, Luka Modric threaded a pass to Vini Jr, whose shot was parried. Valverde was the quickest to it and sat the keeper down with a clever feint before smashing home.

The Spanish side appeared to be coasting after that, but Al Ahly's enthusiasm didn't wane. A clumsy challenge from Eduardo Camavinga gifted the Egyptian team a penalty and Ali Maaloul stepped up to make it 2-1.

Some nervy moments followed as Al Ahly pushed for an equaliser, giving Madrid a scare or two in the process. At the other end, Los Blancos tried to kill the game and squandered a golden chance to do so when Modric had a penalty saved by El Shenawy.

The Europeans would seal it though in stoppage time with two goals to put the icing on the cake. First, Rodrygo applied a cool finish after a fine team move.
