Bayern midfielder Thiago is unlikely to forget the fourth of April 2015 in a hurry, as the Spaniard finally made a Bundesliga comeback after almost a year on the sidelines. After 69 minutes of Saturday's away clash with Borussia Dortmund, Thiago came on as a 69th minute sub in place of captain Philipp Lahm, who also started a match for the first time in almost five months. Thiago last played on 29 March 2014 in a 3-3 draw with 1899 Hoffenheim.

Guardiola's 50th top flight win

Bayern boss Pep Guardiola also had a good reason to celebrate as his team's 1-0 success in Dortmund was the coach's 50th Bundesliga victory. It has taken the Spaniard a mere 61 games to pass the milestone, beating the record set by FCB coaching legend Udo Lattek, who needed 78 matches before making it to 50 wins in 1972.

Ton up for Jerome

Jérôme Boateng passed a personal career milestone in the trip to Dortmund as the meeting with BVB was his 100th Bundesliga appearance for Munich. The centre-back is now up to 185 German top flight games.
