Bayern Munich – Tigres: Comfortable Bayern Overcome Tigres In Club World Cup Final (1-0)
Tigres came into the match as underdogs and accordingly went for a direct approach in their attack. Bayern were on top for most of the game, although they struggled to exploit the spaces in Tigres’ midfield earlier on as they were unable to make the breakthroughs in the final third. Eventually, Benjamin Pavard put Hansi Flick’s side ahead and there was very little to worry about for the German team as the game progressed, with Tigres becoming more stretched as the game went on.
