Bayern Munich qualify for World club Cup final after defeating Al Ahly of Egypt

The German team, Bayern Munich defeated Al Ahly of Egypt 2-0 in the semi-finals of the Club World Cup to qualify for final.

During the game, Bayern dominated throughout and the victory was a well-deserved one.

In fact, the Germans hammered the African champions with a whopping total of 24 shots and controlled 68.5 per cent of possession.

Bayern opened the scoring after 17 minutes when Kingsley Coman switched the ball to Serge Gnabry on the left wing.

Gnabry then flicked it back to Robert Lewandowski, who had no problem beating Al Ahly goalkeeper Mohamed Elshenawy.

The Egyptian champions failed to create any substantial chances throughout the encounter and so Bayern sealed their qualification just five minutes before full-time.

Leroy Sane delivered a cross from the right flank and found Lewandowski completely unmarked in front of open goal which allowed him to head the ball to the back of the net.

Bayern are now set to take on Tigres in the Final on Thursday, whereas Al Ahly will battle Copa Libertadores winners Palmeiras for third place on the same day
