FIFA Club World Cup

Bayern Munich's preparations for their Club World Cup semi-final against Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly were disrupted after they were forced to sleep on a plane.

Bayern's departure on Friday was delayed after their plan was not given permission to take off due to a strict ban on night flights at BER Airport.

The Bundesliga champions were then forced to sleep on a plan before making their way back to Munich to finally make the trip to Qatar on Saturday morning.

The delay could have an effect on the UEFA Champions League holders , according Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

"They don't know what they have done to our team," Rummenigge told Bild.

"We feel like the authorities in charge in Brandenburg politics have taken us for a ride."

Hansi Flick's men do battle with Al Ahly on Monday evening, after Pitso Mosimane's edged past Al-Duhail on Thursday evening.
