Tigres Beat Palmeiras, Reach Club World Cup Final|Al Bawaba
Tigres defeated Palmeiras 1-0 in the Club World Cup semi-finals on Sunday thanks to a second-half charge from star striker Andre-Pierre Gignac.
Manager Tuca Ferretti had stated his Liga MX group didn’t fear the Brazilians, and his gamers appeared to take that message to heart on the pitch.
By reaching the Club World Cup final, Tigres made CONCACAF history and made sure the 2021 season would end up being one of the most substantial years they’ve ever had regardless of where they place locally.
