Barcelona VS Santos Club World Cup Final
All eyes will be on Sunday’s FIFA Club World Cup final clash between FC Barcelona, heir defender of the beautiful game, and Santos FC, living proof that the Brazilian economic machine is growing enough to feed its own talent in their league. Barcelona could be forced to make an appearence without the services of Alexis Sanchez in Sunday's Club World Cup final clash with Santos. The Chilean winger picked up an abductor muscle injury in Thursday’s semi-final victory over Al Sadd, and is now a major doubt for the tournament decider. The absence of Sanchez would be a blow for Barca as the forward has been in fine form of late and was on target in last weekend's Clasico victory over Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu. In addition to injuries, David Villa’s possible season-ending injury against Al Sadd leaves Barcelona in a major setback with offensive players, while Santos is not dealing with any major injuries and is hoping to end the four-year winning streak of European clubs.
