Bayern Munich can make football history when they take on Mexico side Tigres in the FIFA Club World Cup final in Qatar this evening. Hansi Flick’s side have an opportunity to lift their sixth title in nine months, a feat previously only achieved by Barcelona in 2009.
The Bavarians returned to the Club World Cup after seven years, and are a couple of hours away from winning yet another trophy. Flick is without a number of key players, including Jerome Boateng, who left last night due to a personal reason, and Thomas Muller, who tested positive for coronavirus earlier today.
Flick has named his line up, with Leroy Sane filling in for Muller.

Star striker Robert Lewandowski is hoping his side can “write history”, and said: “The Club World Cup would be the cherry on top.
“The next final for us means that we can win the sixth title. That means a lot for football history. We can write history but it is also a big challenge. When you are that close to a title then you want to win it.”
