Philipp Lahm expects Bayern Munich to face Atlético Mineiro in the FIFA Club World Cup final
Philipp Lahm expects Bayern Munich and Atlético Mineiro to meet in the FIFA Club World Cup final.
The respective UEFA Champions League and Copa Libertadores winners are heavy favourites to reach Sunday’s showpiece event at the Stade de Marrakech.
Bayern face Guangzhou Evergrande, who beat Al-Ahly SC 2-0 in the quarter-finals, on Tuesday, while Atlético are against Raja Casablanca a day later.
“We’re definitely the two favourites, though we’re probably the most fancied team,” Lahm told FIFA.com. “We’ll see what happens, but there won’t be any easy matches.”
