Bayern are back on top. The Reds have gifted themselves the best possible present to mark the club’s 110th anniversary. A narrow 1-0 win against Hamburg SV puts FCB in pole position in the Bundesliga for the first time in 57 games, two points clear of nearest rivals Bayer Leverkusen.

In front of a capacity 69,000 crowd at the Allianz Arena, Franck Ribéry scored the only goal of the game on 78 minutes to seal the first victory against HSV in the World Cup stadium. The Reds are now twelve points ahead of Hamburg and can go onto the next games with renewed confidence.
