Statistics World Cup for clubs
For the Mexican Tigres, it is the first time that it participates in the World Cup for clubs. The tournament has already been successful by writing history: Never before has a club from Mexico been in the final. Things are a bit different for Bayern Munich because the Germans already won the tournament in 2013. The World Cup football, the predecessor of the current tournament, has already been won. That even happened twice: in 1976 and 2001. The difference, however, is that that World Cup title was a match between two clubs. Namely the winners of the South American Copa Libertadores and the European Champions League.
However, the current format is that of a tournament. The winners of the biggest tournaments on each continent, plus the champions of the organizing country, come out. The champions of the two football great powers Europe and South America only enter the semi-finals in this setup.
Bayern Munich started the tournament in the semi-final against Al-Ahly from Egypt last weekend. They won the CAF Champions League last season. The German club won 2-0 thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s hits and managed to reach the World Cup final again.
Tigres from Mexico started one lap ahead of the Germans. In the quarterfinals, Ulsan Hyundai from South Korea was beaten 2-1. Then the Brazilian Palmeiras was the opponent in the semi-final. Somewhat surprisingly, that team was also defeated. Thanks to a utilized penalty from the Frenchman André-Pierre Christian Gignac, the coach Ricardo Ferretti’s team won 1-0 against Palmeiras and ended up in the final.
