FIFA Club World Cup Final report: Bayern Munich beat Tigres UANL to win historic sextet and equal Guardiola's Barcelona (1-0)

Bayern Munich claimed the Club World Cup after a 1-0 win over Tigres at the Education City Stadium in Qatar, and have thus emulated the historic sextet won by Pep Guariola's Barcelona side.

The coronavirus pandemic had an impact on the timing of the tournament, and moved the 2020 edition to 2021, but Hansi Flick has filled the Bayern trophy cabinet nonetheless.

Since he was installed on the Bayern bench in November 2019, the coach has swept up every trophy available, winning the Bundesliga, the DFB-Pokal, the Champions League, the DFL-Supercup and European Super Cup, with the 2020 Club World Cup now added.

Concacaf champions Tigres were the last obstacle as they mirrored Barcelona's 2009 achievement thanks to a lone Benjamin Pavard goal. The Frenchman was in the right place at the right time, as he got on the end of a Robert Lewandowski saved header, and blasted home.

Initially the goal was ruled out for offside, but following VAR review, referee Esteban Ostojich awarded Bayern the lead.

Over the course of the game, Bayern had a number of chances as they racked up 17 attempts with eight on target, while Joshua Kimmich and David Alaba drove the German champions forward from midfield and helped them complete a historic achievement.
