After Arjen Robben's comeback in the 4-0 victory over FC Köln more good news followed on Sunday: After being sidelined for two months Mehdi Benatia resumed parts of the team training programme. The centre-back did running and passing exercises with his team-mates before completing an individual programme on an adjacent pitch. The Morocco international, a candidate for the African Player of the Year award, sustained a muscular injury in his right thigh away to Hoffenheim in August.

Cheers! Free beer from Paulaner

The 1000th Bundesliga victory and Arjen Robben's comeback: after the Köln match Bayern fans had every reason to raise a glass to the club. And they did! After the final whistle Bayern partner Paulaner laid on 5,000 litres of free beer at the Allianz Arena. Cheers!
