Real Madrid made history by winning the Club World Cup for a record fifth time after defeating Al Hilal 5-3 in Morocco.

The match, held at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat, was a thrilling affair that showcased the attacking prowess of Carlo Ancelotti's side.

With Vinicius Junior and Fede Valverde both scoring twice and Karim Benzema adding another goal to the tally, Madrid was simply too much for their Saudi Arabian opponents to handle.

This victory serves as the team's second piece of silverware this season, following their win in the European Super Cup in August.

Despite their success in the Club World Cup, Madrid's La Liga campaign has been a bit more challenging, with the team currently sitting eight points behind rivals Barcelona.

However, the win in Morocco was a welcome respite from their domestic battles and allowed the team to focus on earning the title of world champion.

Karim Benzema, who had been out with a thigh injury, was brought back into the starting line-up for the match and quickly made an impact by creating the opening goal for Vinicius.

The Brazilian winger had a fantastic tournament, netting in both of Madrid's matches, and the team as a whole seemed to relish the opportunity to take a break from the domestic competition and earn the title of world champions.

Fede Valverde added to the lead with a well-placed shot, while Moussa Marega scored for Al Hilal, but Andriy Lunin could have done better in keeping the shot out.

Despite a few hiccups, Madrid stepped up in the second half and secured the entertaining victory. Valverde added another goal to his tally, while Vinicius and Benzema both scored as well. Al Hilal tried to mount a comeback with goals from Luciano Vietto, but Madrid held strong to secure the win.

Uruguayan midfielder Valverde was in top form, finding his goalscoring touch after a dip in form. Al Hilal fought until the end, but ultimately Madrid was too much for them to handle. Marega had a chance to score late in the match, but his shot went wide, letting Madrid off the hook and securing their historic victory.

In the end, the Club World Cup win will be remembered as a triumphant moment in Real Madrid's history, showcasing their attacking prowess and ability to come out on top in a thrilling match against a tough opponent.
