MOST COMMENTED

Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich eased past Asian champion Guangzhou Evergrande 3-0 in the Club World Cup semifinal on Tuesday, setting up the reigning European champion for a final showdown with either Atletico Mineiro, the South American champion, or Raja Casablanca, the African champion, who square off in the other semifinal on Wednesday.

Goals from Franck Ribery, Mario Mandzukic and Mario Gotze in a seven-minute spell either side of hafltime secured the win for the German treble winner, which had to be patient thanks to Guangzhou’s defensive approach. Nevertheless, Bayern dominated proceedings against the Chinese team, which failed to register a single shot on goal.

"I think we played well and stayed serious," Ballon d’Or finalist Ribery told German public television after the game. "We are professionals and we want to win this title in Morocco. It's important to us."
