Saudi Arabia's Al-Ittihad FC will face Egypt’s Al Ahly in the FIFA Club World Cup quarterfinals at the King Abdullah Sport City Stadium on Friday.

Host Al-Ittihad is looking for another victory against the Cairo giant and to continue shining in the Jeddah-hosted tournament following its 3-0 win over New Zealand's Auckland City in the opening match.

More than 50,000 fans filled the stadium for that match, a record for the tournament.

The winner of Friday’s match will face Brazil’s Fluminense, which is participating for the first time in the tournament.
