Mexican side Monterrey will be Liverpool’s opponents in the FIFA Club World Cup semi-final after they beat Qatari side Al Sadd on Saturday evening.

Prediksi pemain Liverpool FC yang masuk line-up Piala Dunia Antar-klub di Qatar: Alisson, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Milner, Keita, Firmino, Mane, Salah, Gomez, Adrian, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Lonergan, Shaqiri, Robertson, Origi, Jones, Alexander-Arnold, Williams. Namun, Wijnaldum diragukan dapat ikut ambil bagian setelah cedera saat melawan Watford. Dejan Lovren juga masih berkutat dengan cidera kala melawan RB Salzburg.

Sementara dari barisan pemain muda, ~Rhian Brewster~ dan Harvey Elliot akan tetap tinggal untuk membela Liverpool kala melawan Aston Villa dalam helatan Carabao Cup. Sedangkan Curtis Jones dan Neco Williams ikut terbang ke Qatar.

Flamengo have a host of familiar faces in their squad, including ex-Chelsea left-back Filipe Luis, former Bayern Munich man Rafinha, on-loan Inter Milan striker Gabriel Barbosa—otherwise known as Gabigol—and veteran midfielder Diego, who Klopp will be well aware of from his spells with Werder Bremen and Wolfsburg.

The young trio, of course, won’t be involved in the semi-final, but will be part of the training group and could be involved should Liverpool lose against Monterrey and therefore face a third-place play-off on Saturday.

Starting line-up

Liverpool’s starting line-up for their FIFA Club World Cup semi-final with Monterrey is in and sees Divock Origi leading the attack alongside Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri, but Virgil van Dijk misses out due to illness.

And Monterrey have equalized! Alisson makes a hair-trigger save of a Gallardo shot after poor clearance of a free kick, but Funes Mori is perfectly positioned to tap in the rebound. Game on!

Half-time: Liverpool 1-1 Monterrey An entertaining opening 45 minutes with brisk two-way action and plenty of chances on both ends. Liverpool are winning the possession battle while Monterrey have generated the better opportunities, showing they can take a punch with their rapid response to Keita’s early opening. Plenty more to come from Khalifa International Stadium!

2nd half

Subtitution Mane cames on for Shaqiri (68min)ahead of a corner for the Mexican side.

Chance A good chance for Liverpool as Milner plays it in from the right side to Origi, but he’s swarmed by defenders can’t direct it squarely on target. The ball actually deflects off Mane in the end, but either way it’s out for a goal kick.

Subtitution Alexander-Arnold enters for Milner (75min), Liverpool’s second change.

Subtitution We’re back up and running and Klopp will make his final substitution, inserting Firmino for Origi (85min).

GOAL! Liverpool 2-1 Monterrey (Firmino, 90+1min)

Salah beats two defenders down the right side, fends them off long enough to pick off the runner Alexander-Arnold, who finds Firmino practically on the goal line for the nifty finish. That should be the winner!

Full-time: Liverpool 2-1 Monterrey

There’s the whistle and Liverpool are through to the Club World Cup final for the first time since 2005 thanks to a late winner by the super sub Firmino! The European Champions advance to Saturday’s final against Flamengo, who rallied to defeat Saudi side Al-Hilal in yesterday’s first semi-final.


Seperti biasa, Liverpool FC menang dimenit-menit akhir. 😁
