Bayern are banned from drowning their sorrows at beer fest
Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal cancelled his squad's traditional visit to the Oktoberfest beer festival on Monday and organised a training session instead after his side lost 2-0 at Borussia Dortmund on Sunday.
Champions Bayern languish in 12th place after seven games, 13 points behind surprise leaders Mainz.
The Bavarians have scored only five goals and have already suffered three defeats.
"The board of Bayern has called off the planned visit of coaches and players to the Oktoberfest this lunchtime," the club said in a brief statement.
"Because of the current sporting situation coach Louis van Gaal has set a training session instead."
