It feels good to have that 315 pound---- er, minute--- monkey off our backs. Mueller, finally scoring a goal for Bayern against Freiburg on Saturday, shouted in jubilation. So did I.
Bayern’s without Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery, Ivica Olic and Edison Braafheid for the match in Bordeaux. And Breno is listed as doubtful. However, Mark van Bommel and Martin Demichelis are both back, healthy, and figure to feature in the starting eleven.

...Then you should talk about World Cup qualifying.
FC Bayern Munich held scoreless three matches in a row? Improbable! And while we all sit on the sidelines hemming and hawing; dissecting the players, the match strategy and the coaching, perhaps it’s a good thing 13 of van Gaal’s men are off to serve their respective countries. I’m thinking - hoping, rather - the international break will do everyone some good. My nervous system, included.

I was happy to be wrong about the result of the Bayern-Juventus match--- to a point.
We definitely out-played and certainly out-classed Juventus in Wednesday’s match at the Allianz Arena. The first 45 minutes were by far the best that Die Roten’s played this season. Juve had no answer for “Robbery” and was reduced to some very hard tackles to stop the incessant attack of the Bayern midfield. (Does anyone else think Camoranesi should have been red-carded?)
