Bayern crush Lippi's Guangzhou

Marcello Lippi’s Guangzhou Evergrande lost the Club World Cup semi-final 3-0 to Bayern Munich.

The Chinese club are in the tournament in Morocco after winning the Asian Champions League and took on their European counterparts.

It took until the 40th minute for Bayern to find a way through thanks to Franck Ribery and a goalkeeping error.

Mario Mandzukic got the second just before the break and Mario Goetze completed the rout straight after the restart.

The scoreline would've been considerably heavier had Bayern not rattled the woodwork five times.

Lippi’s men reached the semi-final after beating Al Ahly 2-0 on Saturday.
