AL AIN, United Arab Emirates (Reuters) - Japan's Kashima Antlers recovered from a goal down to beat Mexico's Chivas Guadalajara 3-2 in their Club World Cup quarter-final in the United Arab Emirates on Saturday. Substitute Hiroki Abe sealed the comeback with the third goal in the 84th minute, setting up a semi-final against European champions Real Madrid on Wednesday. Brazilian Serginho sent Guadalajara goalkeeper Raul Gudino the wrong way from the penalty spot to put the Asian champions ahead in the 69th minute. Abe's strike from the left-hand side of the box into the top corner made the score more comfortable for the Asian champions. Wednesday's clash between the European and Asian champions will be a rematch of the 2016 Club World Cup final when Real Madrid beat Kashima 4-2 after extra time.
