Al Ahly sunk by Bayern Munich at Club World Cup

Robert Lewandowski scored twice as Bayern Munich progressed to the Fifa Club World Cup final by beating Al Ahly in Qatar.

The German champions dominated the first half and deservedly took the lead when Lewandowski slotted in.

Egyptian side Al Ahly competed well after the break, with their pace on the counter a concern for Bayern.

But Lewandowski made sure of the win with a late header for his 29th goal in 27 appearances this season.

Bayern Munich will play Mexican side Tigres in the final on Thursday, 11 February (18:00 GMT).
