The match between Al Hilal and Chelsea would not be easy as it seems to look for the blues, the Saudi Arabian side was able to score six goals past their opponent in the quarter-final.
Thomas Tuchel and his men need to be careful with some of the Al Hilal players as they have shown to be clinical in front of goal and can cause havoc in the Chelsea defence.

Since his arrival, the player has scored six goals in 11 appearances for his team and was also on the score sheet in their 6-1 win in the Club World Cup
The Chelsea defence has to up their game in other to match the striker’s strength and also stop him from causing havoc.
The Nigerian striker completed his move to the Saudi Arabian side in January, he made his debut in the knockout of the Club World Cup and was on the scoresheet.
Ighalo will be a huge problem for Chelsea, his experience in the Premier League will help his team a lot and give him the confidence to knock horns with the Chelsea defence.
Hopefully, Thomas Tuchel will recover quickly to be in the touchline and help the team crack the best approach for the game. We would make them suffer humiliating defeat as for our plans to knock out Chelsea in today’s Club World Cup Semi-final clash to book final spot with Palmeiras.
