Raja Casablanca continued their dream run in the FIFA Club World Cup as the home favourites stunned Brazil side Atletico Mineiro in Marrakech to book a final meeting with Bayern Munich.

The hosts denied Ronaldinho a chance to win the competition for the first time, having reached the final with Barcelona in 2006.

The former FIFA World Player of the Year brought his side level with a brilliant free-kick, cancelling out Mouhcine Iajour's opener early in the second half.

But Iajour won a penalty which Mouhcine Moutouali converted in the 84th minute and Vivien Madibe sealed a famous win in stoppage time.

The Moroccan side will now take on European giants Bayern in Saturday's final in the capital.

Earlier, Monterrey thrashed Al Ahly 5-1 to take fifth place in a match which saw Cesar Delgado become the competition's all-time leading goalscorer.
