AL-RAYYAN, Qatar: Robert Lewandowski says Bayern Munich are eager to pursue their sixth title within a year of reaching the Club World Cup final.

Bayern advanced to the final after Lewandowski’s goal gave them a 2-0 victory over African champions Al Ahly in the semi-finals in Qatar.

The European champions will face Tigres in Thursday’s final after the Mexican club beat Brazilian giant Palmeiras in another semi-final match on Sunday.

“It was a good match and we were ready for the final,” Lewandowski said.

The Polish striker put Bayern ahead in the 17th minute at the Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium, the venue for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

He then secured victory by heading Leroy Sane’s cross four minutes before the end of the game.

The Bundesliga top scorer has now scored 29 goals in 27 club matches this season.

Bayern have a chance to be the second team after Barcelona in 2009 won all six domestic and international tournaments in a season.

The German giants have already lifted the Bundesliga trophies, the German Cup, the Champions League, the German Super Cup and the UEFA Super Cup last year.
