FC Bayern Munich won their semi-finals at the Club World Cup in Qatar against Al Ahly SC 2-0 (1-0).
Against the club from the Egyptian capital Cairo, which had qualified as the winner of the African CAF Champions League for the tournament of the continental champions, a brace from striker Robert Lewandowski (17th minute, 85th) was enough for the Bundesliga club to secure a victory.
Bayern determined the game from the start and hardly let Al Ahly come from his own half.
After a blocked cross from Benjamin Pavard, Kingsley Coman played the ball at the height of the six-yard box in the middle, Serge Gnabry put down at the far post for Lewandowski, who hit from close range.
With the lead in their backs, Bayern played less consistently and gave the Egyptians more space, but the outsider did not have any great opportunities.
In the closing stages, Lewandowski made it all clear with a header from substitute Leroy Sané's cross.
The Mexican club Tigres from a suburb of Monterrey is waiting for the final.
The winner of the Concacaf Champions League prevailed in the second semifinals with a penalty goal from French André-Pierre Gignac 1-0 (0-0) against the South American champion Palmeiras.
The game starts on Thursday at 7 p.m.
