Continuing with tradition, Bayern Munich players, management and staff enjoyed their annual Oktoberfest traditions on the back of their recent stunning form.

Pep Guardiola's side have made a blistering start to the season both domestically and in Europe. Yesterday's 5-0 defeat of Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League was their tenth successive victory.

Polish striker Robert Lewandowski was among those enjoying a beverage or two and it is hard to argue that he doesn't deserve it.

The ace forward netted a hat-trick against the Croatian club, taking his tally to an incredible 10 goals in eight days and three games.

Here are the best of the pictures from today's celebrations.
