Great day for Gomez, Martinez and Dante

According to the horoscopes, and for those who believe in them, the moon was a powerful influence for good on Saturday. “The day is well suited to sport," said one. “At the moment, the moon will give you extra power," read another. “You will have strong feelings," predicted a third.

For three Bayern players, the 5-0 gala at home to Hannover on Saturday afternoon seemed to prove the astrologers right. Mario Gomez scored his first goal after a long injury lay-off, and Javi Martinez and Dante opened their accounts for FCB. And by the end of the game, the moon had indeed risen above the East Stand at the Allianz Arena.
