Bayern Munich players try hand at basketball, should stick to soccer

Bayern Munich is arguably the best soccer team in the world right now. Sure, there are arguments to be made for other squads, but we’re not here to do that.

There’s no argument, however, that Bayern’s basketball team will not be recruiting the help of any of their soccer club-mates.

Seen in the video above (in what loosely can be defined as a shootaround) Bayern stars like Thomas Muller and Dante show off their skills on the hardwood. Even Javi Martinez flushed a sweet dunk.

It doesn’t take long to see the Bayern soccer luminaries aren’t quiet as deft with a ball in their hands as they are with one at their feet, which makes sense.

After a few blatant traveling violations, double dribbles and bricked shot attempts, Muller and Co. proceed to ditch their hands. In a wise move, they stick to the appendages they know best: their heads and feet.

That’s when things start to take off, as the two Bayern Munich sports teams combine to bring a little Harlem Globetrotter flavor to Morocco. What starts as a pretty cringe-worthy performance (see: Muller’s hook shot) turns into a pretty awesome show.

Bayern cruises past Arsenal in first leg

Bayern Munich underscored its Champions League title aspirations with a comfortable 3-1 win at the Emirates, all but sealing Arsenal’s fate and earning Bayern its first ever win in London.

Toni Kroos opened the scoring in the 7th minute with what would stand up as the goal of the game. Check out Thomas Muller’s fine cross to set up Kroos, who one-times it beautifully past Wojciech Szczęsny. 

 

Muller scored one of his own in the 21st minute, making him the first ever German player with a goal and an assist in a UCL match in England. Lukas Podolski’s header briefly gave Arsenal hope in the second half, but then this happened:

 

Mark that one down as the oddest goal of the season!
