FC Bayern training during the international break
Foot on the gas for a final time and then chill out for a couple of days -- that's the maxim for the FC Bayern players on this Wednesday. The last of this week's three training sessions was held this morning before the record champions players left in Munich can enjoy a long weekend during the international break. Since the start of the year, FC Bayern have played 18 games in 76 days with 16 wins (two draws, two defeats). Before the final run-in it is again a matter of: Gathering strength. We show you how this week's three training sessions went.
Varied training on Monday
After the thoroughly successful weekend with the 4-0 win against VfB Stuttgart, the players not on international duty completed a varied training session on Monday. Eric Maxim Choupo-Motingand Co. faced a heading practice stand, targeted shots and a number of runs.
Passing and moving drills on Tuesday
There was also an intensive session on Tuesday for the players including Javi Martínez. After the warm-up, the FCB players completed passing drills and then worked on moves.
Skills training on Wednesday
The Bayern players got stuck in to the training session on Wednesday as well. As on Monday, Marc Rocaand Co. completed a range of activities. That included dribbling, shooting and heading.
