  • Kickoff: 18:00 UTC / 19:00 CET
  • Venue: King Abdullah Sports City

A place in the finals of the Club World Cup will be at stake when Urawa Reds and Manchester City meet in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday evening.

Urawa Reds should already be familiarised ahead of this game, having already survived the second round by beating Leon 1-0 last weekend. That win extended Maciej Skorża's side's run to 8 consecutive games and they have won three of their last four. Tuesday's game will be a much tougher test for the Reds though, as they will need to beat the European champions Man City to reach their first Club World Cup final.

One consolation for the Urawa Reds is that Manchester City are currently out of form. The Citizens have failed to win five of their last eight games in all competitions and squandered a two-goal lead against Crystal Palace last weekend. But with this game City’s debut in this competition after their first Champions League trophy last time out, Pep won’t take this Tuesday’s game lightly.

Urawa Reds vs Man City Betting Tips: City to win and over 2.5 goals

Despite Manchester City’s rough patch in recent weeks, the Citizens possess enough quality and experience in their ranks to navigate this semi-final tie.

You shouldn’t write Urawa Reds off though when it comes to scoring. Maciej Skorża’s side have scored in each of their last eight matches and just two of those fixtures ended with fewer than 2.5 goals.

City’s defence hasn’t equally been good in recent weeks. Pep's side failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last eight games in all competitions, conceding at least two goals in four of the last season matches. Just one of those games ended with under 2.5 goals.

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals
  • Urawa Reds vs Manchester City prediction: 1-3
