Real Madrid are looking for one more trophy -- the FIFA Club World Cup 2017 -- to cap off a fantastic calendar year. The Los Blancos start their campaign in the competition on Wednesday December 13 against Abu Dhabi side Al Jazira Club.

Zinedine Zidane's men have already put their hands on the La Liga title this year, the UEFA Champions League, the Supercopa de Espana as well as the UEFA Super Cup. 

Real Madrid are the defending champions of the Club World Cup and are absolute favourites to retain the title. After taking on Al Jazira on Wednesday, the La Liga giants progress straight to the final if they get a win. 

The FIFA Club World Cup 2017 final is scheduled for December 16 and Brazilian club Gremio have already sealed their berth.

As for the team news, Zidane has a fully fit squad at his disposal. That means the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric could conspire to cause tremendous trouble to Al Jazira, who were the Arabian Gulf League (UAE Pro League) champions last season.
