Real Madrid left incensed by disallowed VAR goal

Speaking on Teledeporte after the final whistle, Bale played down the dramatic impact he had made, saying he was just happy Madrid would be defending their CWC title in Saturday's final against Brazilian side Gremio.

He has played only 11 matches with Madrid this season because of lingering muscle problems. "He is a fantastic player".

But more worrying for Real is that the goals have seemingly dried up from their front line. "It's a shame that he has been injured, because he is very important for the team".

"I believe they will be fully motivated and give everything in this Club World Cup". Cristiano's equalizer, after a good shot, came five minutes after Khaseif's injury, as if Al Jazira had lost his genius from the lamp.

The Wales global had only played 30 minutes in the past three months.

Inflation accelerates to 15-month high of 4.88% in Nov
The inflation numbers also exceeded RBI estimates that retail inflation numbers will remain within 4.2 per cent to 4.6 per cent. In November, the Bank of England raised its key interest rate for the first time in more than a decade from 0.25% to 0.5%.

The reigning Champions League holders scored twice in the first half, only to see both efforts ruled out by referee Sandro Ricci. He signalled that his final decision, made almost three minutes after the goal, was based on Benzema being offside.

The hosts took advantage of Madrid's early struggles and opened the scoring in a counterattack just before halftime. Madrid could not fall lower.

Al Jazira took a shock lead during the clash, with the victor looking to book a place in the final against Gremio.

Things got even more surreal two minutes after half-time when Madrid were again caught with too many players up the field, and Ali Mabkhout teed up Boussoufa to tap home.

Madrid were back on level terms thanks to star forward Cristiano Ronaldo who struck in the 53rd minute.
