Updates from Saturday, Nov. 30

Mario Mandzukic made his first-team return for Bayern Munich during Saturday's 2-0 win over Eintracht Braunschweig.

The physical forward had been nursing a calf injury but he played just over half an hour as a substitute, as noted by the club's official Twitter account, albeit making little impact:

First substitution for #FCBayern: Thomas #Müller is replaced by @MarioMandzukic9 (57'). #FCBEBS 2-0
