Bayern Munich progress to the final of the Club World Cup after defeating Al Ahly 2-0 this evening at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium.
Robert Lewandowski scored a brace to send his side through, firing home from close range in the first half before restoring the lead at the back post from Leroy Sane’s cross for his second five minutes from time.
Hansi Flick’s men were not at their best but were clinical when they needed to be to put the Egyptian side to the sword.
Bayern will take on Tigres in the Club World Cup final on Thursday, while Al Ahly will face Palmeiras in the third-place playoff earlier on the same day.
Bayern led and missed several opportunities either side of Lewandowski’s 17th-minute opener as the Pole drilled in a shot from eight metres after Serge Gnabry squared back a Kingsley Coman effort across the face of goal.
Lewandowski fired a shot over the bar after a steady move in the 37th minute and left-back Alphonso Davies blasted just wide in the 40th as Bayern kept pressing forward.
Al Ahly came forward with a little more purpose in the second half as the pace dropped but Bayern led possession comfortably and Lewandowski sealed the contest with another incredible finish in the 85th minute.
