Bayern win Club World Cup

Bayern Munich have won the Club World Cup, beating Raja Casablanca 2-0, while Marcello Lippi’s Guanghzou Evergrande came fourth.

Pep Guardiola’s German team followed up their Champions League and Bundesliga triumphs with the world title in Morocco.

Dante and Thiago Alcantara had the Final under control by the 22nd minute and that proved to be enough against the Moroccan CAF Champions League winners.

Meanwhile, Lippi’s Guangzhou Evergrande lost the third place final 3-2 to Brazilians Atletico Mineiro.

Diego Tardelli broke through after two minutes, but Muriqui and a Dario Conca penalty had the Chinese side in front.

Ronaldinho scored with a classic free kick before he was sent off for a reaction foul on Xuri Zhao at the 87th minute.

With the result at 2-2 and extra time looming, Luan sprung the offside trap to secure a 3-2 victory in stoppages.
