FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2020™
Bayern reign as history made in Qatar
Bayern München are Club World Cup champions for second time
Tigres UANL make history in reaching the final
Satisfaction for Al Ahly and Al Duhail, disappointment for Ulsan and Palmeiras
The first FIFA tournament to be staged in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic ended once again with European champions. FC Bayern München claimed their sixth trophy in a year, a feat only achieved once before, by Barcelona in the 2008/09 season. This was also Bayern’s second FIFA Club World Cup™ triumph following their maiden title in 2013.
The Germans proved their supremacy in their opening game against Egypt’s Al Ahly SC, progressing to the final with a brace from Lewandowski, voted the tournament’s best player. The European champions showed quality and physical strength against their African counterparts, who played admirably, especially in the second half, but were powerless to prevent Bayern closing in on their sixth title of the year. Tigres proved worthy opponents in the final but once again the Bavarians triumphed.
