Augsburg - After recording their best ever Bundesliga Hinrunde, FC Augsburg will prepare for the second half of the 2014/15 campaign in Belek, Turkey.
The Bavarians are one of six top-flight clubs jetting off to the popular township during the winter break, and having ended the calendar year level on points with Borussia Mönchengladbach in fourth, head coach Markus Weinzierl will be hoping the eight-day stint along the Mediterranean Sea will leave his charges well-equipped to build on last season's eighth-place finish.
"In fine fettle for the trip to Belek/Turkey! Safe flight, lads!"

Meanwhile, Augsburg forward Halil Altintop, a 38-time international for Turkey, and his club-mates received a warm welcome at Antalya airport.
