50th Oktoberfest home win

In-form FCB remain determined and focused

Tuesday's festival of football at the Allianz Arena included sparkling attacking play, three goals, and three points, the perfect way to mark chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s 57th birthday. “It was a good performance, we fully deserved to win, and we can be very happy with this matchday," Rummenigge reflected in the aftermath of an emphatic 3-0 victory over Wolfsburg.

The first home fixture during this year's Oktoberfest could hardly have gone better for the home team. The 71,000 crowd were treated to scintillating attacking play at times, as Jupp Heynckes’ men confirmed their superb early-season form with an eighth victory on the bounce. Even better, with Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund playing out a 3-3 draw, FCB have moved two points clear at the top of the Bundesliga. “We're right at the top and we don't want to move away," said captain Philipp Lahm.
