FC Bayern, Deutscher Meis7er!
FC Bayern earned its first competitive trophy of the 2017/18 season after beating Borussia Dortmund on a penalty shootout.
Borussia Dortmund 2-2 (pen. 4-5) FC Bayern München
For Asian fans like the Mia San Manila family, waking up to a 2-3 scoreline in favor of Borussia Dortmund leaves a bitter taste in the mouth for the rest of the day that no tapsilog and hot coffee can ever shut. Losing to the boys from North Rhine-Westphalia means that Bayern is only gunning for one silverware come June which is the Bundesliga. As of this writing, the Bavarians are eight points clear at the top of the table followed by Liepzig, Dortmund and Hoffenheim respectively.
After four years, here it is:
What a great start for the new Bayern boss, Carlo Ancelotti.
Here are the numbers from last Sunday’s match:
For the past three years, we are pretty much used to staggering possession ball game played by our lads so seeing the number at 45% and have won with a clear deficit of nil to two, this must be a breath of fresh air that we are familiar with — just like the air of childhood from a place where nostalgia thrives.
Direct approach to football. Counterattack.
Who is ready for the 2016-2017 season?

In history books, we read that Spain colonized the Philippines for three reasons: God, gold and glory. God to spread Christianity; gold for the riches of the spell-binding archipelago; glory to show her sisters in Europe (the Dutch, French, English and the Portuguese) that she had likewise conquered the Far East.
FC Bayern Munich is one of the biggest and influential clubs in the world for three reasons too (because, apparently, it comes in three’s): silverware, support, and sponsor.
