CWC: Bayern Munich vs Tigres

Bayern Munich vs Tigres

After a long wait, Bayern Munich finally came very close to the sixth title of the 2019/20 season, the Club World Cup. With just one more victory, coach Hansi Flick's army will register in history, becoming the second club to complete the "six" after the legendary Barcelona in 2009. 

Bayern have proven the seriousness of joining the Club. World Cup, not only with the optimal force available, but also the performance on the field. In the semi-final against Al Ahly, Gray Lobster came out with the strongest team, maintaining concentration until the last minute, not being subjective before a much inferior opponent in terms of reputation and class.

When there is only one obstacle left, there is no reason for Bayern not to fully exert all his strength. In fact, Coach Flick had calculated when he actively pulled out the pillars early in the second half against Al Ahly, thereby helping them rest more before the final. 

Tigres UANL in theory can not compare to Bayern, but the team from Mexico is the "dark horse" of this Club World Cup. After overcoming the Asian champion, Ulsan Hyundai, the students of coach Ricardo Ferretti created an earthquake with the elimination of the South American champion, Palmeiras to become the first North Central American representative (CONCACAF). go to the Club World Cup final.

Before Palmeiras, Tigres was also a better team, better than controlling the ball, the number of shots to the number of shots on target. Obviously, the team led by coach Ferretti is not "lucky", but really a formidable opponent in the tournament taking place in Qatar. 

In addition to the unpleasant play, Tigres also owns a good quality team with the "top" Andre-Pierre Gignac. The striker used to "storm" in Ligue 1 and have 36 caps for the French team, scoring 7 goals as the fulcrum for both the expertise and spirit for the Mexican club. Although he is 35 years old, this season, he still has 17 goals after 23 appearances, including 3 goals coming right at the Club World Cup.

Gignac can be a match for Lewandowski in the final tonight and if you do not want to pay a high price, the Bayern defense needs to "take care" of the former Marseille striker. In addition to this main striker, Tigres also owns many veterans with extensive experience in Europe such as Carlos Salcedo, Diego Reyes, Guido Pizarro or Javier Aquino. 

Of course, in all aspects Bayern still proved superior. It is important that Flick's students keep their heads cool from the first minute and are not allowed to make mistakes. In front of a completely strange opponent like Tigres, Gray Lobster is very easy to "lose direction" if the team is ahead.

History awaits Bayern and they need to grasp this "now or never" opportunity. This promises a difficult match but it can be believed that by his level, the defending European champions will know how to overcome the final challenge.
