Tomorrow, Bayern Munich will have the chance to do something incredible - clinch the treble before the entire calendar season is even over.
Thanks to victories in the DFL-Supercup and the UEFA Supercup, lifting the Club World Cup in Qatar will give this team their third trophy of the year and their sixth piece of silverware in the last 365 days.
Outside of Bayern playing in this game, it’s an important one to me for many reasons.
We are a blog mostly staffed by North American writers, most of us coming from the United States. We all know what it means to be in CONCACAF, how insane the region is, how questionable the referees are, etc.
Therefore, I cannot stress enough, that this might be the most important club soccer match in the history of CONCACAF. No team from this region has ever made it to the final of the Club World Cup. Even in the previous edition of this tournament - the Intercontinental Cup - no CONCACAF team had ever been represented in the championship match.
Due to the stature of this match, we decided to bring on a podcaster and freelance writer who covers the Mexican game - Cesar Hernandez. He’s a wealth of knowledge, and I’m happy he was able to join us for this episode:
On this episode, we take a look at Tigres UANL who are currently 8th in the Clausura round of Liga MX with a 2-1-1 record and 7 points. Today, Jake sits down with Mexican soccer journalist Cesar Hernandez to talk about how Tigres reached this point, what we can expect from a defense riddled with stars on the Mexican National Team, the dominance of Andre-Pierre Gignac, and how we can expect this game to play out.
