Real Madrid take on San Lorenzo in the 2014 Fifa Club World Cup at Stade de Marrakech, Marrakech on Saturday.

Where to Watch

Kick-off is at 7:30pm GMT. There is no live coverage of the Club World Cup in the UK.


Club World Cup is a tournament where one team from each of the six continental confederations, along with the host nation team take part. San Lorenzo qualified after they won the 2014 Copa Libertadores.

The La Liga giants made it to the Club World Cup after defeating local rivals Atletico Madrid in the 2013/14 Champions League final earlier in May. As a result of this, the Spanish capital club will be given an opportunity to feature from the last four of the tournament.

In the semi-final clash, Real defeated Mexican club Cruz Azul as Carlo Ancelotti's men registered a comfortable 4-0 victory. Meanwhile, San Lorenzo defeated Auckland City 2-1 in the other semi-final fixture.

Real have made it to the Club World in 2000, where they failed to lift the trophy. The 10-time European champions are unbeaten and they would be looking to extend their run against San Lorenzo on Saturday, who are making their first appearance in the tournament.

What Managers Say

Carlo Ancelotti: "Ronaldo played very well, he provided assists. He's always very effective, even when he doesn't score. He is surely saving a goal for the final. "Casillas' penalty save was key. The game seemed to be over at 2-0 and they could have opened the tie up. He dived very well."

Edgardo Bauza: "We had a very intense game which lasted 120 minutes. I only would have liked my team to have had a little more time to recover, that's all. "Perhaps the players will notice the physical exertion during the game. All I can say is that it would have been nice to have more time to recharge our batteries."
