Live stream info: Barcelona vs Guangzhou Evergrande - FIFA Club World Cup

December 16, 2015 By Ali M.
A win in the Blaugrana’s 1st ever competitive game against a Chinese side will set up a FIFA Club World Cup final with River Plate.

Although the shock 5-1 aggregate win for Athletic Bilbao dashed Barcelona’s hopes of winning the sextuple, that will not deter the Blaugrana from aiming to add to this year’s silverware, as they embark on the 2015 FIFA Club World Cup.

The Catalan giants, having won last season’s Champions League, will enter the competition from the semi-final stage, and will lock horns with Chinese giants Guangzhou Evergrande.

Led by former Brazil coach Luis Felipe Scolari, Robinho and Co. booked their ticket in the last 4 thanks to a 2-1 comeback win over Mexican side America, but face a far more daunting opponent in the form of Luis Enrique’s boys.

River Plate await the winners of Thursday’s encounter, with Guangzhou Evergrande the only obstacle between Barcelona and their fourth final in 9 years. Will Messi and Co. overcome their Asian opponents?

RECENT FORM

Ahead of the clash on Thursday, both sides enter the semi-final encounter, being held in Stadium Yokohama, leading their respective leagues.

The Blaugrana sit ahead of rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, whilst claiming top spot in their Champions League group, setting up a round of 16 match with Arsenal.

However, they Camp Nou side are without a win in their last 3 games in all competitions, drawing 1-1 twice and 2-2 in their most recent fixture.

Guangzhou, on the other hand, have drawn twice in their last 6 matches, both 0-0 draws away to Gamba Osaka and Al Ahli from the U.A.E..

BARCA VS CHINESE SIDES

The two-time treble winners have never before face a Chinese side in a competitive game, though there have been six friendlies, one of which was a Camp Nou affaird with the national side.

All ended in favor of the Spanish giants, scoring 28 and conceding none.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

No game involving Barcelona is complete without four-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi taking stage, and Thursday's clash is no exception.

The Argentine has scored 5 goals since making his return from injury in El Clasico on November, taking his tally in 2015 with his club to 46 strikes.

The 28-year-old will be partnered in the final three by Uruguayan ace Luis Suarez, who has 18 goals to his name this season in all competitions.

Barcelona's back four are not facing a roll in the park, however, with Guangzhou boasting the likes of Robinho and Paulinho in their ranks.
