Bayern Munich beat Mexico’s Tigres 1-0 in the final of the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar on Thursday to lift their sixth title within 12 months.
Benjamin Pavard scored the only goal of the final for Bayern Munich in the 59th minute of the match.
This is the eighth year in a row that the Champions League winners have gone on to win the Club World Cup, as Bayern follow in the footsteps of last year’s champions Liverpool.
Bayern are the second side to win all six available titles within a year after Barcelona managed the feat in 2009.
Hansi Flick’s men had already won the Champions League, Bundesliga, German Cup, Uefa Super Cup, and German Super Cup last season.
Earlier, Tigres created history by becoming the first CONCACAF team to reach the final of the FIFA Club World Cup. They beat Palmeiras 1-0 to get the ticket to the final of the tournament.
Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski said, “It feels good to have the six titles in a row is something very special for us. I think this is one of the biggest achievements in football, how we played will be remembered for a long time.”
