Although Bayern did not have too much to celebrate in terms of the result on Saturday as the drew 1-1 at home to a strong Schalke side, it was not all a day of doom and gloom for the League leaders entirely.
Firstly, whilst Bayern dropped points, chasing side RB Leizpig also dropped points fortunately for Bayern, as they lost 1-0 to Borussia Dortmund, now putting them 4 points adrift of Bayern Munich at the top of the table.

However, secondly, and more importantly to us Bayern fans, a certain Philipp Lahm made his 500th, yes 500th appearance for the Bavarian side. The Captain was brought on in the 2nd half, likely to allow for the standing ovation which followed.
The game ultimately didn’t end as planned, but it was still an enjoyable affair for both Lahm and fans alike, as one of the clubs greatest ever legends really made his mark by reaching such an amazing milestone. Thanks for all the service Philipp!
