Tigres stun Palmeiras to reach CWC final

Tigres stun Palmeiras to reach Club World Cup final

February 7, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Tigres have become the first CONCACAF team to make it to the FIFA Club World Cup final after beating Palmeiras.

Liga MX side Tigres have made history by becoming the first CONCACAF team to make it to the FIFA Club World Cup final. Ricardo Ferretti's side set up a potential final date with reigning European champions Bayern Munich by running away with a surprise 1-0 win over Brazilian club Palmeiras in Sunday's semi-final.

Following a drab first half which failed to produce any goals, Tigres were handed a breakthrough just eight minutes after play resumed for the second half. A foul on Carlos Gonzalez by Luan led Palmeiras to concede a penalty which was converted by French striker Andre-Pierre Gignac for his third goal of the tournament. Not much ensued afterwards although the Brazilians had a goal ruled for offside.

Tigres could potentially face Bayern Munich in Thursday's final. The current UEFA Champions League title holders are overwhelming favourites to progress from the semi-final when they take on Egypt's Al Ahly on Monday. The latter booked their spot in the penultimate round by beating Al Duhail 1-0 in the quarter-final. Earlier, the reigning Qatari champions beat South Korea's Ulsan Hyundai 3-1 in the fifth place play-off.
