Bayern Munich vs Tigres
FIFA Club World Cup
Date: Thursday, 11 February 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Education City Stadium.
The Bavarians have the rare opportunity to complete a coveted sextuple, which has been recorded only once in modern football, by Barcelona, back in 2009.
All the team has to do is win this upcoming game, against practically a minnow. A victory this Thursday, and the legacy of Hans-Dieter Flick would be written in stone.
They are already in unbelievable form, spearheaded by their talisman striker, Robert Lewandowski.
The Polish point man had missed out on the Golden Boot as well as the Ballon d’Or the last year, and he seems hellbent on making up for it this time around.
The team has been scoring for fun against the titans of European football, and it needs no astrologer to predict what they could do to a lowly opposition from Mexico.
Keep in mind the difference in quality between European football, and of the American continents.
The Tigers might have won the CONCACAF Champions League the last season, but they really are no match for the German juggernauts.
Expect Bayern Munich to complete the sextuple this Thursday at the Education City Stadium.

- These two teams are taking on each other for the first time.
Bayern Munich vs Tigres Prediction
The Bavarians are easily the best team in the world at the moment, and they are determined to deliver the Club World Cup for their fans at any cost.
They were unbeaten in 48 of their past 50 overall games, and in the process they had won 45 of these fixtures. Note that they had also scored two or more goals in nine of their former eleven games.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in three of their preceding five overall match-ups, and they had remained so in 15 of their past 23 road trips.
Most importantly, the Tigers are from the Mexican league, and would be considered the underdog against any quality opposition from Europe, let alone the absolute best of them.
By all means, expect a Bayern Munich victory, and plenty of goals as well from their in-form offense.
