Al Ahly vs Bayern Munich: FIFA Club World Cup: how and where to watch- times, TV, online
All the info you need to know on how and where to watch Al Ahly-Bayern Munich, the second semi-final of the FIFA Club World Cup in Al Rayyan Qatar.
Mexican side Tigres became the first team from North America to reach the final of Club World Cup when they beat Brazilian club Palmeiras 1-0 in the semi-final on Sunday.
After a tepid first half Tigres’ French striker Andre-Pierre Gignac got the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 54th minute when Luan was adjudged to have pulled down Carlos Gonzalez.
The result means Tigres move into Thursday’s final, where they will face the winners of Monday's second semi-final between Champions League winners Bayern Munich and Egyptian club Al Ahly.
Bayern start as favourites
Bayern Munich's preparations for their Club World Cup campaign may not have been ideal but head coach Hansi Flick will not use a seven-hour travel delay as an excuse against Al Ahly.
Bayern boarded a plane for Doha immediately after Friday's 1-0 victory over Hertha Berlin but did not depart until the following morning after their clearance for take-off was denied.
The European champions eventually left for the Middle East on Saturday morning and were unable to train when arriving at their destination.
However, Flick's squad were able to train on the eve of the game and the Bayern boss is ready for the showdown with the reigning CAF Champions League holders.
"It's not the best preparation, without question," he said at a news conference on Sunday. "Ultimately, the decisive factor is we arrived safely and won't allow any excuses. "Of course, it would have been better if we could have arrived sooner. But this morning we did what was planned for yesterday.
Bayern made the trip to Doha without midfield pair Leon Goretzka and Javi Martinez, who both recently tested positive for coronavirus.
Opponents Al Ahly knocked out Al Duhail to advance to the semi-finals and South African manager Pitso 'Jingles' Mosimane was able to train with a full squad as the champions of Africa look to deliver an upset in the competition.
