I havent't watched any games from this year's Club World Cup, but I think this competition is getting more lame every year and the important clubs don't really care about it... From what I remember, AC Milan won the last trophy against Boca Juniors, so the last 2 editions were not won by teams from South America... Anyway, I think Man Utd will win the trophy this year, LDU Quito is not a team that can face them.

I don't think we should underestimate Quito. South Americans teams are highly under-rated. They can be very good. Everyone thought Liverpool was going to win when they played Sao Paulo the last time. But no, they lost. South American teams have won the Club World Cup a few times. The same applied to the game against Gamba Osaka. Everyone thought Man Utd was going to thrash Gamba Osaka, but ended up conceding three goals. Yes, Man Utd still won, but it wasn't as easy as expected. Quito is a better side compared to Gamba Osaka. Man Utd have to take the game seriously and play well defensively as well as attacking-wise. They can win, no doubt about that. Man Utd does play football at a higher level, but still, they need to get it done, and win. It's important that Man Utd win this Club World Cup, the outcome of this tournament might affect Man Utd's progress in the Premier League and Champions League.
