Galos Eyes Third Spot After Disappointing Loss

Galos Eyes Third Spot After Disappointing Loss

Match Date: 21 December 2013 (local time)

Venue: Marrakech

 

Team Form

Guangzhou Evergrande

Guangzhou Evergrande still has the chance to make a strong finish in Club World Cup Morocco. The club is set to meet Atletico Mineiro as both squads battle it out for the tournament’s third spot.

 

The Asian champion started strong at the onset of the competition. Marcello Lippi and his men kept Al Ahly SC at bay via scoring two (2) winning goals courtesy of Elkeson and Dario Conca. The said victory carried them to the semi-finals where they met the European kings, FC Bayern Munchen.

 

Despite taking the minnow’s role, the Southern China Tigers put up a great challenge against the Bavarian side. Zeng Cheng’s diving saves were worthy of commendations as he denied Bayern’s attempts for several times.
In the upcoming match against Atletico Mineiro, expect the likes of Muriqui, Conca and Elkeson to stand out. Cheng’s superb performance during the encounter against Bayern will most likely land him a spot in the starting XI.

 

Atletico Mineiro

The Galos booked one of the most memorable upsets in football history when rivals Raja Casabalanca thrashed them with a 3-1 victory.

 Ronaldinho Atletico Mineiro

Tagged as the match’s heavy favorite, Atletico Mineiro had trouble in scoring. Ronaldinho was their only scorer when he netted a penalty in the 63rd.
Yet, regardless of the disappointment felt, expect the Galos to secure their redemption when they face Guangzhou Evergrande.

 

 

World Cup betting tip: Atletico Mineiro

The loss may have caused a certain degree of doubt against the recently hailed, Copa Libertadores champion. But the squad’s strength on the pitch cannot be totally ignored. However, they should be wary of Guangzhou Evergrande too since the club also manifests the strength that can also pave way for another major upset.
