OANS, ZWOA, DREI - GWUNNA  - 'One, Two, Three - We've Won' in Bavarian dialect - was the slogan on the T-shirts donned by the stars as they celebrated at Berlin Olympiastadion after hoisting the DFB Cup in 2013. Daniel van Buyten led the way, followed by Bastian Schweinsteiger, Thomas Müller and the rest as they danced a conga, well aware they had completed the greatest triumph in FC Bayern's 113-year history.

Exactly five years ago on Friday, a 3-2 cup final victory over VfB Stuttgart on 1 June 2013 sealed the club's maiden treble. Müller put the Reds ahead from the spot in the first half, before Mario Gomez struck twice after the break to put FCB 3-0 to the good. Stuttgart pulled two goals back with a Martin Harnik brace, but Jupp Heynckes' men held on and claimed their third trophy of the campaign.

The celebrations started right after the final whistle. The conga was merely the first act in a long party night and morning that only ended at Marienplatz in downtown Munich, where thousands of rapturous fans cheered their footballing heroes.
