If there had been a prize for the hardiest player at the Allianz Arena on Saturday, it would have gone to Holger Badstuber. Following Bayern's comfortable 2-0 victory over Kaiserslautern, the centre back ignored temperatures well below -10 degrees Celsius and removed his shirt before saluting the home faithful, only then heading for the dressing room and a hot shower.
The 69,000 at the icy arena also had to summon up all their resistance to the chill, but the Bayern fans who braved the big freeze were suitably rewarded for their dedication as the home side turned in a display to warm the heart, dominating the toothless visitors at will. For long spells of a one-sided match, FCB looked just the side which went 13 games without defeat last autumn.
