COMMENT

Bayern Munich 1-0 Tigres: as it happened

French pair Lucas Hernández and Pierre Gignac swap shirts after tonight's final. 

Bayern celebrate

It definitely wasn't a normal night of celebrations for the Bayern players in Qatar but the players have since taken to their social media accounts. 

Bittersweet week

It has been a very bittersweet week for Bayern Munich, with defender Jérôme Boateng having to leave the camp after hearing of the death of his ex-girlfriend. 

Full story:

No more positive covid-19 cases at Bayern

Bayern Munich confirmed that the whole team was tested again and that there were no further positive cases.

According to Bild, Bayern Munich’s entourage underwent testing on Monday which yielded no positive cases and were tested again on Wednesday and Müller’s result returned positive. He then took a second test that returned negative before a third test being positive.

Müller has since isolated from the rest of the team and is staying in another hotel although per the report, it’s not clear as to how the German could have been infected.

No Muller

Thomas Muller is missing out tonight, having tested positive for covid-19 ahead of tonight's match. 

The Bayern players have now removed their face masks and take turns lifting the trophy as the fireworks go off overhead. 

Bayern make history!

Hans-Dieter Flick and Bayern Munich make history by becoming only the second team after Barcelona (in 2009) to win all six domestic and international titles up for grabs in one season. 

Manuel Neuer lifts the trophy! Their SIXTH of the season.

The mood is strange, without their own fans there etc etc

"We are the champions" rings around the Education City stadium!

And now it's Bayern's turn!

Bayern applaud tonight's opponents and runners-up Tigres as they collect their silver medals. 

Al Ahly finish third

Al Ahly are now receiving their bronze medals, having won against Palmeiras on penalties earlier today.

Flick has more trophies than defeats!!!

The best player of the tournament is:

1) Robert Lewandowski (another award!)

2) Pierre Gignac

3) Joshua Kimmich

Robert Lewandowski post-match. 

“We really wanted to win today. The goal that we scored was probably from the first cross that came in. I said to the boys at half-time, come on, put a few more crosses in. They managed it once and that’s how we won the sextuple, and that’s an amazing thing! It’s a shame that Thomas Muller wasn’t able to be here. We are flying back straight home to Munich, there is no time to celebrate.”

Former Real Madrid man Kaka will be presenting Bayern with the Club World Cup trophy.

Hansi Flick will be remembered for years to come in Munich!

Six trophies in his first season. Simply incredible.

SIX!!!!!!

Bayern are deserved winners - Manuel Neuer had almost nothing to do throughout and Kimmich had a perfect goal ruled out in the first half. In the second half, the Germans could've added to their single goal.

Tigres can be proud of reaching the final and only losing by a goal to one of the greatest sides in recent history.

Bayern make history!

Hans-Dieter Flick and Bayern Munich make history by becoming only the second team after Barcelona (in 2009) to win all six domestic and international titles up for grabs in one season. 

Bayern Munich win their SIXTH TITLE of the year! A remarkable achievement from the German side. 

FT: Bayern 1-0 Tigres

IT'S ALL OVER!

Neuer takes his time..

94

Guzman is up, the ball falls to Gignac but he blasts it over. 

93

Tigres have a free about 40+ yards from goal.

90 seconds to go!

92

Douglas Costa carries the ball forward, turns, slows it down and picks out a pass..

90

There will be 4 additional minutes at the end of the 90.

90

Choupo-Moting sends his left-footed strike just over the bar. Tigres get away with yet another Bayern attack. We're heading into the 90 now. 

89

Musiala runs it into the corner. Bayern looking to slow things down...

88

Gignac is starting to get very frustrated now, pulling his compatriot Pavard. 

87

It has been a crazy 5 minutes! somehow it's still 1-0. 

85

DOUGLAS COSTA!

The sub buries it straight at Guzman - should've been two!

Excellent strike but he would have been better placing it. Still 1-0 to Bayern.

84

Salcedo almost puts it into his own net! A mix up at the back leads to Salcedo heading into his own net but Guzman gets back in time to save it on the line!

83

Gignac goes for the overhead but fails to connect. Tigres aren't giving up!

82

Tolisso hits the post!

Tolisso strikes it from distance, it slides under Guzman, hits the post and Guzman collects it again. So close to being 2-0.

Gignac offside again for Tigres!

79

Diego Reyes stops a Bayern move down the left. He has been rock solid for Tigres so far. Bayern are looking comfortable now. Maybe Flick can feel it too, having taken off Lewandowski. 

77

Bayern are on their way to six titles in a calendar season. It will be a remarkable achievement for the European champions if they can hold on in Qatar. 

75

Can Pierre Gignac come up with some more Club World Cup magic in the final 15 minutes? 

Bayern changes:

ON Choupo-Moting, Douglas Costa & Musiala

OFF Lewandowski, Sané & Coman

73

Bayern are preparing a couple of changes. Looks like former Stoke City man Choupo-Moting will be coming on.

70

Tigres have 20 minutes to get themselves an equaliser. 

70

Kimmich sends in a wonderful cross from the free-kick, Tolisso gets a head on it without really seeing it and it sails over the bar. 

69

Davies has been brilliant going forward tonight for Bayern, but also defensively he has worked very hard. 

67

Free-kick to Tigres from a long way out. Gignac stands over it. Bayern clear the danger from the Frenchman's cross. 

Bayern change:

ON Tolisso

OFF Gnabry

63

Tigres are looking for a handball in the box but the ref waves the play on. 

When we look back at the replays, Salcedo is playing the Bayern players onside. 

Pavard then slams home into an empty net from ten yards out. 

Bayern 1-0 Tigres (Pavard)

BAYERN GOAL!

VAR says it's a goal and Pavard's close range strike puts the Germans ahead!

Bayern have a second goal ruled out - this time it's for offside, however, we'll also be going to VAR!

BAYERN GOAL OFFSIDE!

Don't forget we'll be heading for extra-time if this remains scoreless.

BAYERN CHANCE!

Alaba finds Gnabry, who opens up his body and sends it into the far top corner but it's rising over the bar. Leans back slightly. One his underage coaches at Arsenal would've told him to avoid. 

51

Gignac finds himself down the left channel but also finds himself offside. 

50

Both teams have started the second half quite positively. We're expecting a couple of goals in this half!

There have been no half-time changes made. 

We're underway!

The players are back out on the pitch for the second half.

Apart from the disallowed goal, Bayern have also hit the woodwork through Sané. Tigres will be hoping to test Neuer more in the second period.

Davies is a joy to watch and has been causing havoc down the left wing for Tigres.

Bayern have been the better side in the first half, having a Kimmich goal ruled out after 18 minutes. They will be livid over the VAR decision on that one. Tigres have gotten away with it and will be delighted to head into the break level.

HT: Bayern 0-0 Tigres

46

Neuer sprints out of his box to clear the danger, acting as sweeper and gets clipped by Gignac in the meantime, but it's now all ok between the pair. 

Poor free from Kimmich. Tigres breathe.

45

Davies earns a free-kick for Bayern after some nice play. It's pretty far out but an opportunity right before the break.

If you're just joining us, Bayern had a Kimmich goal ruled out by VAR on 18'.

42

Just under 5 minutes to go in this first half; it remains goalless in Qatar.

Gignac and Davies in happier times.

38

Gignac puts his hands on Davies' face as they challenge for a ball. Referee has a quiet word but no booking for the veteran striker.

BAYERN CHANCE!

Corner taken short - straight to Sane, the former Man City player hits it first time and it flies off the upright. Good effort but just the wrong side of the post. 

33

Tigres captain Guido Pizarro gets a shot away from the edge of the D but it rolls into Neuer's hands. 0-0

32

Sule prevents the danger down Bayern's right side and knocks it out for a corner. 

28

Tigres go up the other end with Aquino down the left - he pulls it back for Pizarro, who thinks about shooting from the edge of the box but fails to get a strike in.

Replays of Kimmich's goal will have Bayern fuming over the decision! Lewandowski wasn't in the keeper’s way.

25

Bayern are in the mood now. Coman cuts in from the left and strikes one towards the top corner that Guzman does superbly well to stop.

Lewandowski didn’t appear to be standing in Guzman’s line as he jumped over the shot. Kimmich is denied a stunning goal in the final.

The goal has been ruled out!

But it's going to VAR

BAYERN TAKE THE LEAD!

18

GOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!

KIMMICH

Both teams are really going for it. Lively start in the Education City Stadium.

14

Davies bursts down the left flank once again - Tigres manage to scramble it away before Lewandowski gets a proper chance to strike.

11

Nice hold up play from Gignac, who picks out Quiñones, but he sends his effort wide of Neuer's goal.

Gonzalez clears the corner from Kimmich.

9

Bayern corner after a great run from Davies! 

6

Lewandowski gets a half chance for Bayern but fails to connect with the ball on the edge of the box. 0-0

Neuer - Pavard, Süle, Hernández, Davies - Kimmich, Alaba - Sané, Gnabry, Coman - Lewandowski

4-2-3-1 is how Bayern have set up tonight. 

To reach tonight's final, Tigres first defeated AFC Champions League winners Ulsan Hyundai 2-1 in the quarter-final and beat Copa Libertadores champions Palmeiras 1-0 in the semi-final with a penalty from French striker André-Pierre Gignac.

2

Tigres have started very livelily here! Gignac whips in a free-kick but Bayern clear the danger.

Gignac earns a corner for Tigres after 23 seconds!

We're underway for the Club World Cup final between Bayern Munich and Tigres!

Al Ahly have won the third-place play-off, beating Palmeiras 3-2 on penalties. The game had ended goalless after 120 minutes.

Tigres go with the same XI that played in the semi-final win over Palmeiras.

Bayern Munich starting XI

Bayern

Bayern favourites

Hansi Flick’s men have a unique opportunity to make history in this game. If they beat the Mexican side they will have won six trophies in six competitions in one season, something that has only been done once before in football history, when Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona achieved it in 2009.

The players are in the tunnel! 

The history of Mexican clubs in the finals of international tournaments

Tigres UANL are the 16th team in the history of Mexican football to play in a final of an international tournament and only three clubs have been able to win it.

Kick-off is just over 20 minutes away! 

We'll be bringing you live coverage from Qatar for the Club World Cup final right here on AS English.

Alaba

Alaba starts for Bayern

According to reports in Spain, the Austrian international has a pre-contract agreement in place with Real Madrid to join Los Blancos this summer. There is also reported interest from the Premier League. His departure from Bayern is inevitable, with his destination set to be confirmed over the coming months. 

Lewandowski: Sixth title would be cherry on top of Bayern's historic run

Bayern Munich's quest for the Club World Cup title - their sixth trophy in less than nine months - would crown an historic run for the German powerhouse, top scorer Robert Lewandowski said on Tuesday.

"The title at the Club World Cup would be the cherry on top," The Poland striker told a virtual news conference. "We can write history but it is also a big challenge. When you are that close to a title then you want to win it."

Boateng flies home after the death of his ex-girlfriend

Kasia Lenhardt, the ex-girlfriend of Bayern Munich's Jérôme Boateng, was found dead on Tuesday in her Berlin flat at the age of 25.

A mother of one, the young model had been dating the German defender for the past 15 months before the pair announced their separation on 2 February after allegations of blackmail and infidelity ended their relationship.

Bayern vs Tigres teams

Our friends at SofaScore have presented the line-ups as they see them, with Tigres set up in a 4-4-2. We'll see how both sides line out in just under 45 minutes.

Tigres starting XI for Club World Cup final announced

Thomas Müller misses final after testing positive for covid-19

Bayern Munich have confirmed that 31-year-old forward Thomas Müller has tested positive for covid-19 ahead of their Club World Cup final against Tigres.

Müller, 31, tested positive for coronavirus at the FIFA Club World Cup in Doha and was promptly isolated. Following his return to Munich, he will immediately go into quarantine.

Bayern have also confirmed that the whole team was tested again and that there were no further positive cases.

Tigres arrive at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan

We're still waiting on Tigres team news but will have it for you as soon as it's in!

Bayern XI confirmed

Hansi Flick has announced his starting XI for the game with Thomas Müller a late withdrawal from the squad due to a positive covid-19 test, according to reports. 

As ever, we've put together a quick preview and a guide to how and where to watch this one wherever you are in the world. 

Bayern are the overwhelming favourites to lift the title in Al Rayyan and Robert Lewandowski has hit the ground running at the Club World Cup despite the Bundesliga side having little time to prepare since arriving in Qatar. The Poland striker found the net twice against Al Ahly in the semifinals and will be looking to add to that tally as Bayern seek a second triumph after their 2013 victory. 

While Bayern Munich are looking to equal Barça's record, Tigres are seeking to become the first Mexican side to lift the Club World Cup, having already made their own bit of history by securing a first final for a Liga MX side in the competition's history. 

The CONCACAF champions have no injury worries heading into the game and Ricardo Ferretti will probably field a very similar side to the one that knocked out Palmeiras in the semi-finals, looking to the experience of players like Gignac, who scored the only goal of that game, Luis Quiñones, Guido Pizarro and Javier Aquino.  

Tigres will be looking to the the mercurial talent of veteran striker André-Pierre Gignac to guide them to glory against the European champions. And the Frenchman has been a thorn in Manuel Neuer's side before... 

Hansi Flick’s side have a unique opportunity to make history in this game. If they beat the Mexican side they will have won six trophies out of six competitions in a single season, something that has only been done once before in football history, when Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona achieved it in 2009.
