German giants Bayern Munich arrived in Doha on Friday for their annual training camp at Aspire Zone.
For the ninth year in a row, the Bundesliga champions chose the state-of-the-art facilities of the academy to get ready for the second half of season, as they will be hoping to claim their seventh consecutive league title, despite trailing leaders Borussia Dortmund by six points at the winter break.
The 28-time Bundesliga winners already kicked off their preparations few hours after arriving at Hamad Airport, with a light training session.
All morning training sessions at Aspire Zone will kick off at 10:00 a.m. and be open to public.
Niko Kovac announced a 29-man squad for the Doha trip on Wednesday. It included all big names and a number of young players who include 17-year-old Dutch striker Joshua Zirkzee.
The team will depart Doha on January 9th, and are set to play a couple of friendlies in Germany before resuming their Bundesliga campaign away against Hoffenheim on January 18th.
