Bayern Munich slugged out another Bundesliga win in sub-zero temperatures against Hertha Berlin. Afterwards, they left for Qatar to compete in the Club World Cup, and the change in climate may just make them stronger.
Everything stings that little bit more when the temperature dips below freezing. Muscles cramp up, bones start to ache and crunching tackles leave their mark.
So Bayern will have welcomed their departure from a snowy Berlin, especially after securing a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Hertha Berlin thanks to a Kingsley Coman strike.
Sun and 20 degrees Celsius will welcome them in Doha, Qatar, where they’ll compete in the Club World Cup. In this hectic season, with a packed schedule, those extra matches will add a further burden. (DW)
