Bayern beat Raja to win Club World Cup, 5th trophy

Bayern Munich capped the greatest year in club history by

beating Raja Casablanca 2-0 to win its first Club World Cup on

Saturday.

The European champions added a record fifth title to their

trophy cabinet at the tournament of continental champions to go

with the Champions League, Bundesliga, German Cup, and European

Super Cup triumphs in 2013.

Dante scored early to deflate the Moroccan hosts at Marrakech

Stadium, and Thiago Alcantara put the Bavarians in command with his

22nd-minute goal.

Unheralded Raja, which beat Copa Libertadores champion Atletico

Mineiro in the semifinals, used its speed on the break and came

close to scoring but ultimately couldn’t keep up with the German

champions.

Bayern coach Pep Guardiola has won the competition three times,

also with Barcelona.
