FULL-TIME: Bayern Munich 1-0 Tigres

There's a couple late chances for Tigres but Bayern manage to hold on and complete the sextuple, becoming only the second team after Pep's Barcelona in 2009 to do the iconic achievement!

During their time in Qatar for the FIFA Club World Cup they haven't been their typical fluid Bayern team but that's understandable given fatigue, travel demands and the dry, bobbly pitches. In such a short space of time as Bayern manager, Hans-Dieter Flick has already achieved so much.

Carioca picks up a yellow for bringing down Davies on the left flank.


CHANCE!! Costa cuts in from the right wing and lays it off to Choupo-Moting - his fellow sub - but the Cameroonian sends it over the bar from close-range.


SAVED!!! Two brilliant stops from Guzman to deny Choupo-Moting!


ALMOST A DISASTER FOR TIGRES!! There's a mix-up between Salcedo and Guzman to deal with a wayward Bayern pass as Salcedo's header goes beyond Guzman and looks to be trickling into the goal but Guzman rushes back to stop it.


CLOSE!! Lovely flick on from Gonzales and Gignac attempts an acrobatic bicycle quick, but he seems to have misjudged the flight of the ball. Maybe a simple tap-in could have done...but another Puskas award nomination could have been tempting.


OFF THE POST!! Guzman tips Tolisso's long-range effort onto the post!


Finally a change made by Tuca, and it's an attacking one! Julian Quinones - a forward - comes on for the right-back Rodriguez.


The match has gone a bit stale after those changes. Wonder why Tigres haven't made any changes of their own despite being behind and likely on more tired legs given the extra game they had to play in this tournament.


More subs for Bayern! Eric Choupo-Moting, Jamal Musiala and Douglas Costa on for the trio of Lewandowski, Sane and Coman.

Could be a slightly premature attempt to conserve

Great ball from Gignac from a free-kick but Bayern eventually hack it away through Hernandez and Alaba. Shouts for handball yet again are brushed away by the referee.

Quinones tries to work his way into the box, but Pavard manages to keep him at bay despite hitting the deck. The ball appears to hit his hand while he's on the floor but the ref has a clear view of it and insists it's not a penalty.

GOAL!!! After a long VAR check, the referee adjudges that Lewandowski was in fact onside during the build-up to Pavard's strike and Bayern are finally 1-0 ahead!


ANOTHER GOAL DISALLOWED!!! Lewandowski rises to head Kimmich's pass, but collides slightly with Guzman. The ball falls to Pavard, who scores into an open net, but it's been ruled out for offside! Lightning has struck twice.


Good defending from Salcedo to put a stop to Gnabry's weaving run with a sliding challenge. Bayern just lacking that spark right now, and Lewandowski's largely been anonymous.


CLOSE!! Gnabry gets the ball on the edge of the area, drops his shoulder and tries to curl one in top bins but it's slightly over! He was leaning back a little mid-shot so that could be why.


Flag up against Gignac on the left after being set free into Bayern's half.



Al Ahly won the penalty shootout earlier to beat Palmeiras to the bronze medal, but not after the latter's Roni had his penalty saved in rather embarrassing fashion...

  • 2nd Half

The second half is underway! Bayern have a Monday evening Bundesliga match, so I'm sure they'll be hoping this match doesn't go to extra-time and penalties as the third-place playoff did between Al Ahly and Palmeiras earlier this evening.

HALF-TIME: Bayern Munich 0-0 Tigres

The German champions will be very frustrated by that half, given the disallowed goal and how the match has remained goalless despite their dominance and multitude of chances. Tigres, on the other hand, can go into the second half feeling optimistic even though they have been a bit quiet in attack since their bright start. However, it remains to be seen whether they can maintain their high work rate and pressing.

Duenas is booked for time-wasting. Definitely feels like a bizarre thing to say in the first half of a football match! Made even more silly by the fact that he's now one foul on Sane away from a red card.


Tigres are very insistent on playing it out of the back even despite Bayern's pressing, which has caused some nervy moments in all honesty. Their manager Ricardo 'Tuca' Ferretti is already jotting down notes on his whiteboard to discuss at half-time.


OFF THE BAR!! Bayern catch Tigres napping at a corner! Gnabry takes it quickly and Sane's first-time effort ricochets off the bar. Tigres' nine lives are gradually depleting...


Corner for Tigres falls to Pizarro but his effort is tame and it trickles its way towards Neuer.


SAVED!! Coman has a thunderous strike kept out by Guzman! Bayern are really starting to impose themselves on this game with fluid, attacking football.


IT'S BEEN RULED OUT! Very surprised by that decision, as it appeared to be Salcedo obscuring his own keeper's vision rather than Lewandowski's doing. Maybe there was a slight touch the referee saw on his touchside monitor, but either way that's incredibly harsh and Bayern will have to pick themselves up from that and go again.


Tigres players were appealing for offside for that goal...Lewandowski did attempt to dodge the ball but the Tigres players seem to think he was either interfering with play or made a slight touch on the ball himself.


GOAL!!! What a strike by Kimmich! Aquino's clearance was poor and went straight to him. He had plenty of time and spice to size up a shot and found the bottom left corner perfectly.


Really enjoying the fast pace to this game! Tigres have really brought the game to Bayern. The battle between Quinones and Davies on one flank is one to watch, with both players causing problems for each other.

Quinones played on the left in previous games but seems to have moved to the right to match Davies' pace.


Gonzalez blasts a shot over the bar after some great work for Gignac to win the ball, make a run and supply the pass.


CHANCE!!! Golden opportunity for Bayern, as Lewandowski basically misses the ball after being put through by a wonderful pass from Alaba. Looks like Salcedo may have got a touch on it to throw him off but still slightly uncharacteristic!


SAVED!! Sharp passing from Bayern and Coman's shot is straight into the hands of Guzman.


This game looks quite open early on. Bayern look to push on in the counter but Reyes produces a crunching tackle to deny Lewandowski's through ball on the turn.


Interestingly, Tigres' record goalscorer Gignac takes their wide free-kicks. He has one headed away there and it makes you wonder he really should be in the box for those!

  • 1st Half

The match gets started and Tigres look to make an immediate impact with Gignac having his header deflected out for a corner.



Gignac is not the only who has had an unconventional route to their current role.

Former Bayern Munich and FC Cologne midfielder Hans-Dieter Flick started his managerial career as player-manager of Victoria Bammental in the late 1990s while they were in the fourth and fifth tier of German football after retiring from the professional game due to injuries.

A managerial spell at Hoffenheim in the third tier before an assistant manager role at RB Salzburg both followed, but it was during his eight years as Joachim Low's assistant manager for Germany that he really rose to prominence.

He initially joined Bayern in 2019 as an assistant coach to Niko Kovac, but once Kovac was sacked Flick got the job as manager after impressing as interim manager.



A surprise move to Liga MX after outscoring the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani in Ligue 1 was deemed unwise by many.

However, four Liga MX titles, a CONCACAF Champions League title, three Campeon de Campeones titles, a Copa Libertadores final and more, all while scoring nearly 200 goals has proved the doubters wrong for sure!



While no club from CONCACAF - the confederation for clubs from North America, Central America and the Caribbean - has made the final before now, several Mexican clubs such as Monterrey, Club America, Pachuca, Atlante, Cruz Azul and Necaxa have all made the third-place playoff.

Monterrey were the last one to win that bronze medal when they beat Saudi Arabia's Ali Hilal on penalties in last season's tournament.



It's a standard 4-4-2 for M̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶B̶a̶s̶s̶e̶t̶t̶'̶s̶ Ricardo Ferretti's Tigres side, who are unchanged from their 1-0 win over Palmeiras on Sunday.

Their iconic striker Andre-Pierre Gignac leads the line with the Paraguayan marksman Carlos Gonzalez in a very experienced XI that features only four players under 30 and in which the youngest player is 27.

That includes left-back Jesus Duenas, who has played over 400 competitive matches for Tigres, and the duo of Argentina international Guido Pizarro and former Spartak Moscow man Rafael Carioca in central midfield.



Bayern Munich line up similarly to how they did in their 2-0 win against Al Ahly on Monday, with only three changes in personnel being made and the 4-2-3-1 formation staying the same.

Niklas Sule and Lucas Hernandez pair up at centre-back, while Alaba moves into centre midfield to play alongside Joshua Kimmich.

The introduction of Leroy Sane in place of Thomas Muller likely means Serge Gnbary will play in the centre attacking midfield role behind Robert Lewandowski and be flanked by Sane and Kingsley Coman.


Good evening and welcome to our live text coverage of the FIFA Club World Cup final match between Bayern Munich and Tigres from the Education City Stadium in Qatar.

Bayern Munich are only appearing in the Club World Cup for the second time ever after beating PSG in last season's UEFA Champions League final. The last time they competed in the Club World Cup was 2013 when they were victorious against Raja Casablanca in the final. They beat Al Ahly 2-0 on Monday to book their place in the final.

Bayern's opponents Tigres became the first CONCACAF side to reach the Club World Cup final thanks to wins over Ulsan Hyundai and Palmeiras. Their appearance in this tournament comes after their first ever CONCACAF Champions League win, for which they beat Los Angeles FC 2-1 in the final.

We will be bringing you all the build-up, highlights and talking points from the match tonight, so stay tuned ahead of kick-off at 18:00.
