The Öschberghof hotel was a busy place on Thursday. A Borussia Dortmund party set off for home at midday after an eight-day training camp in Donaueschingen, but the Bayern players and coaching staff pulled up to the front entrance just a few hours later. Preparations for the arrival of Louis van Gaal and his team had in fact already begun the previous day.

“Vive la vie – life can be so beautiful” according to the web site publicising the “Four star superior conference and golf resort”. The Öschberghof offers guests a wide and appealing range of leisure pursuits, but the Bayern party will use practically none of them. Punishing training routines are the dominant feature of the coming eight days.
