FC Bayern München got down to work on the second day of their winter training camp in Doha, Qatar, on Wednesday.
The players were put through their paces in a morning training session in 24-degree heat - a far cry from the current -4 in Munich.
Carlo Ancelotti then spoke to the media in the afternoon, discussing the Bundesliga title race and targets for the second half of the season. "The aim before the season was to be first at this stage, which we are," Ancelotti said. "We can still improve, though, and I hope that we're able to build on the game against Leipzig."

There were some minor injury concerns for the Italian tactician, however: Kingsley Coman continued his rehabilitation efforts at the team hotel, Javi Martinez sat out the morning session with a cold, while Sven Ulreich also did not feature due to minor muscular problems.
