Soccer Betting Analysis for the 2021 FIFA Club World Cup Semis & 5th Place Matches
Sunday, Feb. 7th Matches
- Al Duhail +135 / Ulsan Hyundai +167
Both these squads played very well in their last matches. Al Duhail lost 0-1 to Ahl Aly. They were bigger underdogs than that. Ulsan Hyundai lost 1-2 versus Tigres UANL. One of the best teams in the Mexican League, most expected Tigres to put a 2 goal beating, or grab a clean sheet against Ulsan.
Which team takes the consolation match on Sunday? Ulsan has played tough. They’re Asia’s best club team. Although Duhail has a regional advantage since this match takes place in Qatar, Ulsan Hyundai has a real shot to grab the win in regulation.
FIFA Club World Cup Pick: Ulsan Hyundai
- Tigres UANL +267 / Palmeiras -102
Top Brazilian squad Palmeiras has a fantastic defense. The chalk has allowed three combined goals in their last 5. Tigres UANL is up against it versus the favorite.
But Tigers played great versus Ulsan on February 4. They also got a chance to play in Qatar. Palmeiras’ last match was versus Botafogo in Brazil. That was on February 2. Although 5 days is plenty for the favorite to acclimate to the new surroundings, Tigres has the edge in terms of acclimation. They’ve won a game in Qatar. We’re taking a shot on the underdog.
FIFA Club World Cup Pick: Tigres Uanl
Monday, Feb. 8th Match
- Bayern Munich -2 ½ (+108) / Al Ahly +2 ½ (-104)
Bayern, no doubt, should rock Al Ahly on Monday. But although Bayern figures to win easily, the handicap favors Al Ahly.
Ahly plays in the region, which means they can get out of bed, head to the stadium, and not feel any affects of having to have traveled so many miles. Bayern’s last match before this is on Friday against tough Hertha Berlin.
The match is a late one. It’s at 2:00 pm Eastern Time. Munich must hop on a plane after the match, head to Qatar, and then take on Ahly on Monday. Let’s be honest. Munich doesn’t care so much about this match. They’ve got plenty of Bundesliga games and Champions League games coming up. Bayern will win. But they’ll win by either a single goal or at the most, 2 goals.
FIFA Club World Cup Pick: Ahl Ahly +2 ½
