Ronaldo breaks record as Bale fires Madrid to Club World Cup final”

And Al Jazira looked to have gone two ahead early in the second half but it was chalked off for offside after a video referral.

Ronaldo's goal against Al-Jazira makes him the all-time leading scorer in the Club World Cup on six goals.

However, if the Spanish giants do find themselves on the losing side, it would be one of their recent falterings, in what has been a haphazard last few months for Zinedine Zidane's side, who are fourth in La Liga, trailing leaders Barcelona by eight points in the standings. "It's obviously a pleasure to play it because you can only do it if you've won the Champions League".

Real Madrid's unwanted December distraction, a trip to FIFA's World Club Cup as Champions League winners, will continue according to script despite a scare on Wednesday in the United Arab Emirates.

However, all was not lost for Real, who fought back through Cristiano Ronaldo.

Luka Modric, who played a vital role in the build-up, squared it to Ronaldo, who beat Khaled Al Senaani with a brilliant shot into the bottom left corner to level the scores 1:1.

Brazil's Gremio defeated Mexico's Pachuca 1-0 in extra time to advance to the Club World Cup final on Tuesday. Substitutes: Lucas Vazquez (for Isco, 68) 6, Marco Asensio (for Kovacic, 68) 6, Gareth Bale (for Benzema, 81) 7.
