Undefeated and with a five-point cushion atop the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich players and staff donned their leathers pants and double fisted beer and pretzels at their annual Oktoberfest celebration on Sunday. As always, it was a wonderful sight to behold.

Xabi Alonso and his family went all out for their first Oktoberfest and we can only hope that he wears that hat during every match for the rest of the season.

Pep Guardiola looked even drunker than he did last year. "H-heyy Zlatan — I've got a message for you...big guy. You-you're even saltier than the pretzels they have here at the Ok-Oktoberfest, uh, celebration. Oh and one more thing: Wooooooooooooooooooooo! I love beer! I love it so much!!!!"

Manuel Neuer was a late arrival and, as per usual, felt like he could roam wherever he pleased.

Even when gorging on beer and pretzels and wearing a ridiculous sweater, Xabi Alonso looks like he's posing for a GQ spread.

There was a sinister plot against Robert Lewandowski going on during all of this, though. With Poland set to face Germany in a friendly next week, the German players were on a mission to get Lewandowski wasted so he won't punish them during the match. But Lewandowski wasn't afraid. "I still have a week until the game," he said. "So no matter what happens today, I'll be fine by then!"

Sounds like he was ready to party.

Guardiola might need a full week, though.

"Haha...saltier than a pretzel..."
