In his first visit to one of the world’s most famous annual beer festivals, FC Bayern München coach Carlo Ancelotti could make the club’s time at the Oktoberfest a positive one despite dropping their first points of the season on Matchday 6.
Having promised to drink a beer for every point Bayern earnt on Saturday, Ancelotti may have left sober after the club's visit the Oktoberfest on Sunday. Anthony Modeste put a dampener on the Bavarians celebrations with a 62nd minute equaliser for 1. FC Köln at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
Despite dropping two points, the Bavarians still had a lot to celebrate having won all their first five matches of the 2016-2017 season. The record titleholders flew out of the traps in August with a 6-0 thumping of SV Werder Bremen on the opening day of the season. Successive victories over FC Schalke 04, FC Ingolstadt 04, Hertha Berlin and Hamburger SV followed, before Matchday 6's draw with the high-flying Billy Goats.
If anything, the Köln disappointment has made Bayern more determined. "We need to show the opponents that there is nothing to get here at the Allianz Arena." said goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.
