- Bayern Munich win Club World Cup final
- The Bavarians have completely smothered the Tigers of André-Pierre Gignac
- Benjamin Pavard scored the winning goal
André-Pierre Gignac’s Tigers dream collided with the might of Bayern Munich, far too strong for the Mexicans and winner of the FIFA Club World Cup for the second time in its history. This sixth title comes to crown in apotheosis a year 2020 when the Bavarian ogre has won everything.
Unsurprisingly, it was the European champions who set the tone from the start of the meeting by monopolizing the leather and by submerging the Mexican defense, which held firm. As the Tigers began to take their heads out of the water, Joshua Kimmich found his way to the net with a sudden, long shot, but luckily for Ricardo Ferretti’s men the goal was denied for an offside by Robert Lewandowski.
Kingsley Coman, whose powerful strike was well captured by Nahuel Guzman (25 ‘) and Leroy Sane, who saw his shot fail on the post (34’), signed the other two hottest alerts for the Bavarians, who returned to the locker room empty-handed .
Gignac and his family tried to straighten their heads after the break, but the red waves were quick to gain the upper hand and it was another Frenchman, Benjamin Pavard, who found the opening of the head (1-0, 50 ‘ ). David Alaba (73 ‘), Corentin Tolisso (81’) and Carlos Salcedo against his side (84 ‘) were close to doubling the bet, then Guzman made a double save against Douglas Costa and Joshua Kimmich (85’). Definitely, this Bayern was too strong, even for the Tigers!
