Tigers It is the most winning team in Mexico in the last ten years, with five league titles and this Sunday it will have the opportunity to establish itself as one of the best teams on the continent, if it succeeds against the renowned Palmeiras.
In the quarterfinals, the Mexicans were surprised by Korea’s Ulsan Hyundai, but Gignac turned the score around and won 2-1 with good football in the last hour of the game.
Directed by the Portuguese Abel Ferreira, Palm Trees, debutants in the World Cup, is a powerful team that will go out to do damage with the pair of Rony, a member of the ideal team of the Copa Libertadores, with Luiz Adriano.
Despite being considered favorites, the South Americans have shown respect for the Mexicans and this Sunday they will be focused only on the 90 minutes of play, without thinking about the possibility of reaching the final to be champions.
“They are the giants of Mexico, but we are Palmeiras and we are going to go out and win the game”, assured the defender Luan García, one of the keys behind the Brazilian team, who has a midfield with first-class figures such as Gabriel Menino, who will destabilize the orderly defense of the Mexicans.
Mexico never reached a Club World Cup final; Brazil won the tournament four times, twice with Corinthians, once with Sao Paulo and another with Internacional, but the Mexicans try to ignore history because those triumphs have nothing to do with the players they will face tomorrow.
The winner will contest the title on February 11 against the best of German Bayern Munich, favorites to win the title, and Egyptian Al Ahly.
