Last two Osaka pairs

At the club World cup this will be the penultimate day that two matches will be playing today: one classification game and the first semi-final. For the last time this year Osaka will host the following two duels:

- Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors - Mamelodi Sundowns. Maybe players will be demotivated for this game, but it is certainly not a bad thing to be fifth or sixth in the world. However, if players will be in happy mood good thrill will not be absent. In the last match we saw that Mamelodi Sundowns is a tough team to beat and the South Africans will certainly want to be ranked higher. Same goes for South Koreans, who apparently have defence problems after they take the lead for much of the game. If they fix that (in time) Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors would easily be winners.
- Atletico Nacional - Kashima Antlers. For the first time in this event CONMEBOL champion is stepping into action. Before getting here the Colombians are having mixed results unlike their opponents. In the first semi final game Atletico Nacional must play against 12 men today (or the whole stadium), as Japanese league winners will surely get the home crowd with them. Kashima Antlers will do everything they can to go one step further in their debut appearance. Knowing rival's strength 'the hosts of the competition' will try to hold the South Americans back, however Atletico Nacional's knowledge will turn it into victory.
