Bayern Munich and Egypt’s Al-Ahly teams entered into “skirmishes” through tweets on “Twitter”, ahead of their upcoming confrontation in the semi-finals of the Club World Cup.
Bayern published a tweet after Al-Ahly’s victory over Al-Duhail, Qatar, in the second round of the tournament, stating: “Bayern will face Al-Ahly in the semi-finals of the Club World Cup! .. The six-party is waiting for us guys.”
And the Bayern account announced in another post about the date of the match, writing: “Our date is Monday 8/2.”
The last tweet sparked widespread controversy, as some Al-Ahly fans interpreted it as saying that Bayern promised their team to suffer a terrible defeat similar to Barcelona, who suffered a humiliating loss at the hands of the Bavarian giants 8-2, in the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season.
Al-Ahly club quickly responded to Bayern’s tweet, writing: “Al-Ahly Eagles is ready.”
The winner from the Al-Ahly and Bayern meeting will qualify for the World Cup final, to face the winner of the second semi-final match, which will bring together Tigres of Mexico and Brazilian Palmeiras.
