Liverpool now know every club they could face in the FIFA Club World Cup, following Al-Hilal’s triumph in the AFC Champions League.
So now that’s the last team confirmed to join us, Al-Sadd, Flamengo, Monterrey, Esperance Sportive de Tunis, Hienghene Sport in Qatar before the end of this year.
The Reds could very well be lining up against Flamengo in the final of the FIFA Club World Cup, in what would be a rematch of the 1981 Intercontinental Cup in which we were slapped 3-0 😬 pic.twitter.com/KLqJsww5I9

Naturally, the Reds are being tipped to win the whole thing, but not opposition will be a pushover – and certainly not Brazilian outfit Flamengo.
But first, Al-Sadd and Hienghene have to battle it out to take on Monterrey to see which of the trio will get to take on Liverpool in the semi-final.
In the other semi, the winner of Al-Hilal and ES Tunis will take on the Brazilians with the winner of that trio advancing to the final. There will also be a third-place play off for the two teams that fall in the semis.
The competition will commence on the 11th of December when Al-Sadd take on Hienghene and it will all come down to the final which will take place ten days later on the 21st.
