A 59th minute goal from Benjamin Pavard was enough as Bayern Munich became FIFA Club World Cup Champions beating Mexican team Tigres UANL at Education City Stadium in Doha, Qatar.
They have now achieved the sextuple by winning all the 6 trophies possible in a year achieved previously only by Barcelona in 2009. Not only are they the champions of Germany, but also of Europe and the World.
Bayern Munich started off by winning the Bundesliga in June 2020 followed by the DFB-Pokal in July. They won the coveted UEFA Champions League title in August and the UEFA Super Cup in September, the DFL Supercup in September and to round it off the FIFA Club World Cup on 11th February, 2021.
The pandemic did not seem to have any effect on Bayern Munich as they kept playing with the high tempo and flair. They have now registered it all for a season and will be looking forward continuing their rich vein of form. One of their key figures in Muller was missing as he had tested positive for coronavirus ahead of the final but that did not deter them as they comfortable saw off Tigres UANL.
Bayern Munich will resume their domestic duties after their victory with a home game against Arminia followed by an away tie at Eintracht Frankfurt. They continue their Champions League title defense against Lazio in the round of 16 game on 17th March.
Lewandowski and Co will look to kick on and make a statement as they continue their surge in the right direction.
