Meanwhile, Al Hilal - the current AFC champions - got the better of Wydad Casablanca - 2021–22 CAF Champions League winners - via penalties in the second round before an enthralling 3-2 victory over incumbent Copa Libertadores title-holders Flamengo in the semis to seal a spot in the final.
RM vs HLL Dream11 prediction for FIFA Club World Cup 2023
Real Madrid and Al Hilal are among the leading contenders to lift their respective domestic trophies this year owing to their fine form.
Even though the upcoming encounter is expected to be a close one, Real Madrid can be backed to win a record-extending fifth FIFA Club World Cup crown despite their first-team stars Thibaut Courtois and Karim Benzema being on the sidelines due to injuries.

Vinicius Junior can be the top pick among the available forwards. The Real Madrid frontman is likely to continue his goal-scoring form, with 14 goals across all competitions already under his belt.

Top tip: Best midfielder - Federico Valverde (7.5 credits)
Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde can be an ideal pick among midfielders.
The 24-year-old has been a regular starter for the Spanish giants, scoring six goals alongside two assists in La Liga this season.
Known for his passing accuracy and high work rate, he will once again look to make decisive contributions versus Al Hilal after a good outing against Al Ahly last time out, where he was among the goal-scorers on the night.
Top tip: Best defender - Antonio Rudiger (8.5 credits)
Real Madrid centre-back Antonio Rudiger is our recommendation from the defenders’ list. He has registered 36 clearances and nine interceptions in 18 La Liga matches so far, which speaks volumes about his presence in the defensive line. He is also an aerial presence and can contribute offensively during set-pieces.
In the previous match against Al Ahly, he had 68 accurate passes out of 72 in addition to two tackles, amassing 29 points in Dream11. The German will be the main man on guard to keep Al Hilal at bay to record a clean sheet for his team.
Top tip: Best goalkeeper - Abdullah Al-Mayouf (7.0 credits)
Al Hilal Goalie Abdullah Al-Mayouf gets the nod ahead of Real Madrid’s Andriy Lunin in fantasy teams for the custodian spot. The shot-stopper will be duly tested by a lethal Real Madrid frontline and is likely to make more blocks, saves and interceptions, which can add important points to his and your fantasy tally.
