Bayern beat Raja Casablanca 2-0 to take Club World Cup
Issued on: Modified:
Europe’s reigning champions Bayern Munich won the 10th edition of the Club World Cup football tournament after defeating their Moroccan hosts, Raja Casablanca, 2-0, in Marrakech on Saturday evening.
German giants Bayern Munich claimed their fifth title of 2013 as they lifted the Club World Cup with a 2-0 win over Raja Casablanca in Saturday's final.
The Bavarian giants had few problems against Moroccan champions Raja as Bayern grabbed both goals inside the opening 22 minutes from Brazil centre-back Dante and midfielder Thiago.
Raja, who stunned South American champions Atletico Mineiro to reach the final, were comprehensively outplayed and offered only the occasional threat.
Having become the first German team to win the treble of Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup titles last season, Bayern now add the Club World Cup to the UEFA Super Cup title they won in August.
