The African champions were outplayed by the Uefa Champions League winners in Qatar
Pitso Mosimane lost his first ever match as Al Ahly coach when they went down 2-0 to Bayern Munich in the Fifa Club World Cup semi-finals on Monday night.
The Egyptian giants will now meet Copa Libertadores side Palmeiras in the battle for bronze on Thursday.
This is what Twitter made of Al Ahly’s defeat by the European champions.
Not the results we wanted. We will have to improve on many aspects. Football at World Cup level will always show you that you still have a lot of work to do. Most , especially when you are playing against Champions of Europe.Tasted my first loss,so sick! https://t.co/QOrWDrZNpG

FT: Al Ahly 0-2 Bayern. It wasn’t meant to be for Pitso and his side. They can hold their heads high as only two goals by none other than Robert Lewandowski were the difference. Pitso Mosimane’s unbeaten run with Al Ahly came to an end after 23 games.
18 wins, 4 draws, 1 defeat

Al Ahly would be proud of how they defended and kept the scoreline to a more respectable margin, they showed discipline and did everything as a unit, although in the first half I could see the anxiety in them, valuable lessons. pic.twitter.com/qHwMBXM8ut

Al Ahly is gonna ruin Pitso Mosimane’s CV, he should leave for Manchester United… pic.twitter.com/2XCk1Tu9X3

Bayern-Al Ahly 2-0 FT
Very decent 2nd half from Al Ahly, came out cheeky and proactive, but the lack of a proper striker and having Neuer in front have vanished their efforts.
Bayern looked tired and stressed out by great pace in 1st half, could be an alert for the final

Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane’s first defeat in 23 games since taking over the Egyptians.
No shame in his impressive record being ended by the #UCL champs.
Having previously coached Sundowns for one game at the #ClubWC, he’ll hope for third time lucky vs Palmeiras on Thursday.

Highly respectable performance from Badr Benoun, despite Al Ahly losing 2-0 to Bayern. The Morocco international recorded five successful clearances, more than any other player on the pitch. #CWC pic.twitter.com/zohvXHXrCH
