Al Hilal thumped hosts Al Jazira 6-1 on Sunday in Abu Dhabi to book their place in the 2021 FIFA Club World Cup semi-finals against Chelsea.

Al Jazira, who are 2020/2021 UAE Pro League champions, opened the scoring through Abdoulay Diaby after 14 minutes.

But goals from former English Premier League (EPL) forwards Odion Ighalo and Matheus Pereira put Al Hilal into the lead before the break.

That narrow lead was extended into an emphatic scoreline in the second half, as Mohamed Kanno, Salem Al-Dawsari, Moussa Marega and Andre Carrillo all found the back of the net.

Asian champions Al Hilal will now face European counterparts Chelsea in the last four on Wednesday, while Al Jazira meet Monterrey earlier that same day in the fifth-place play-off.
