Al-Ittihad vs. Auckland City: Live Streams, Where to Watch, Team News, FIFA Club World Cup 1st round 12.12.2023

Al-Ittihad and Auckland City will meet again in the FIFA Club World Cup 1st round at the King Abdullah Sport City Stadium Stadium, Buraidah Tuesday, December 12, 2023. Live streaming information, how to watch, match previews and lineup predictions can be found in this article.

Al Ittihad returns to the FIFA Club World Cup after 18 years and kicks off the tournament with a match against Auckland City FC of New Zealand in this first round. Al Ittihad enter this match in quite good form, even though they have just lost 1-3 to Damak.

In Al Ittihad’s last four home matches, all matches have seen more than 2.5 goals scored. This fact shows that Al Ittihad is an aggressive team and often scores goals when playing at home. Moreover, they have only failed to score in one match from their last ten home matches, showing their consistency in scoring goals.

Benzema, Al Ittihad’s key player, has a good track record in this tournament. He has scored four goals in FIFA Club World Cup history while playing for Real Madrid. The return of Benzema and Romarinho to training after injury provides a big boost for Al Ittihad ahead of this match.

However, Al Ittihad will be without the services of Luiz Felipe, who is out with a muscle injury. However, they still have plenty of options up front, with Benzema and Romarinho returning to training and possibly starting.

On the other hand, Auckland City comes into this match after suffering three consecutive defeats in their domestic matches. Their last defeat was 0-2 to Wellington Olympic. This is the first time they have failed to score in five consecutive matches, which could be a bad sign heading into this match.

However, Auckland City coach Albert Riera has all his best players available for this match. He will probably play a 4-5-1 formation, which could provide a balance between defense and attack.

Based on performance, player quality and statistics, Al Ittihad is very capable of advancing to the next round. Thanks to tactician Marcelo Gallardo, Al Ittihad have a strong home record, unbeaten in their last five matches, with four wins.
