Real Madrid 4-1 Al Ain

Goals: Modric 14′, Llorente 60′, Ramos 79′, Nader 90′ + 1 own goal – Shiotani 86′

There is home field advantage, but Al Ain is too small compared to Real.

Real took advantage of the difference in class and turned it into an opening goal in the 14th minute. After getting the ball, Luka Modric comfortably turned and curled a left-foot shot from about 18 meters to beat goalkeeper Khalid Essa.

Under Real’s pressure, Al Ain’s biggest success in the first half was maintaining a one-goal deficit.

While the attackers `forgot` how to score goals, the second line continues to be a solid support for the reigning European Champions League champions.

Al Ain, the team that caused a surprise by eliminating River Plate in the semi-finals, only regained some confidence when they scored to shorten the score in the 86th minute. Japanese player Tsukasa Shiotani scored with a header from the ball.

Al Ain’s defense was helpless before Ramos’ header.

Before the referee blew the whistle to end the final, Real’s attackers could `speak`.

The 4-1 victory in the final helped Real win the FIFA Club World Cup for the third time in a row, an unprecedented series of achievements in the tournament’s history.
