Real Madrid Beats UAE’s Al Jazira in FIFA Club World Cup Semi-Final

"Messi! Messi" rang out around the Zayed Sports City stadium.

Real Madrid came from behind to book their place in the Club World Cup final with victory over Al Jazira in Abu Dhabi.

The Spanish side dominated the game but, not for the first time this season, showed remarkable profligacy in front of goal until Cristiano Ronaldo equalized in the second half and Gareth Bale hit a late victor 30 seconds after coming off the bench.

Gremio's coach Renato Portaluppi won the Intercontinental Cup (the forerunner to the Club World Cup) with the club as a player and underlined his reputation for courting controversy by recently proclaiming he was a better player than Real's Ronaldo.

The match began in a dramatic style as the hosts Al Jazira managed to keep a clean slate till the 31st minute.




Cue Gareth Bale. Coming on the 80th minute, just seconds later he put Real Madrid 2-1 ahead with a low finish inside the box.

"It is a very important tournament for us", the Portuguese forward said. These will be role models for our population.

The UEFA Champions League winners managed to see out the closing stages with relative ease as they booked their spot in the final and are now on course to defend the title they won previous year.

Both teams having been levelled early in the second half, substitute Gareth Bale scored the winning goal with his first touch to send Real to the FIFA Club World Cup final.

With the win Real Madrid go through to Saturday's final in which they will play Brazilian side Gremio.
