Would the precipitate be Copper II Chloride in this chemical equation?

3 CuCl2 + 2Al + HCL →2 AlCl3 + HCL + 3Cu

I'm think it's Copper II Chloride because the Copper is a solid, but the solubility rules with the Cl would suggest otherwise. What would be the precipitate here? One other would the net ionic equation have no reaction, since the ions cancel on both sides??

Ions don't cancel, apparently you have no idea what is ionic here.

Try to write net ionic equation - don't forget to put all charges there.
