Bayern Munich keeps up the good play.

   FC Bayern Munich played host to SC Freiburg on 10 Sept. for their first game after the international break. FCB did not seem to lose any of their from during the international break! The team beat SC Freiburg 7-0, with four goals by Mario Gomez and a brace scored by Franck Ribery. FCB has played outstanding since their opening match loss to Borussia Monchengladbach. In five Bundesliga games this year Manuel Neuer has only allowed one goal.

   This Sunday, 18 Sept. will be the first time that Neuer will play at Schalke04 and not be playing for the Schalke 04. Neuer's hometown team is Schalke 04 and he played for the club for 20 years before joining FCB over the summer. The crowd's reaction to Neuer will be interesting. Also, how Neuer handles the crowd's reaction to him and the jersey that he now wears. Neuer has the mental toughness to handle what the crowd will throw and yell at him. FCB will earn another victory this Sunday and keep their place atop the Bundesliga.

    The Bavarian Giants played their first Champions League group stage game on Wednesday against Villarreal. FCB controlled the match from almost the beginning with an opening goal from Toni Kroos in the 7th minute. The match was sealed up in the 76th minute when Rafinhascored a goal to make the score 2-0. FCB are atop their group with the other two teams only managing a draw. Manchester City and Napoli finished theirmatch with the scored tied 1-1. FCB is the class of this group and should easily win the group and make a serious run at the final in Munich.
