Standing in their way are Fluminense, who won the Copa Libertadores for the first time in their history this year after an extra-time win over Boca Juniors. The Brazilian side are competing in their first ever Club World Cup final and could become the first South American side to win the trophy since Corinthians way back in 2012. They set up this tie with a 2-0 victory over Al Ahly after second half goals from Jhon Arias and sub John Kennedy.
