Bayern Munich are aiming for their sixth Club World Cup title after knocking into the final with a 2-0 win over African champions Al Ahly on Monday, both goals fired in by Robert Lewandowski.

They will face Tigres on Thursday after the Mexican club saw off Brazilian giants Palmeiras in the other semi-final on Sunday.

"It was a very good match and we're ready for the final," said Lewandowski.

He gave Bayern the lead with just 17 minutes gone at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, a host venue for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Poland star then headed home a pinpoint Leroy Sane cross four minutes before the whistle to book Bayern's place in the final.

The African Champions League winners struggled to get near the Bayern goal as the Germans enjoyed 70 percent possession.

The European champions ended Ahly's 32-match unbeaten run in all competitions

Bayern are bidding to become only the second team after Barcelona in 2009 to win all six domestic and international titles up for grabs in one season.

The German giants lifted the Bundesliga, German Cup, Champions League, German Super Cup and UEFA Super Cup trophies in 2020.
