Bayern Munich: Thomas Mue-ller scored in his 250th Bundesliga match yesterday to give runaway leaders Bayern Munich a deserved 1-0 victory at Borussia Moen-chengladbach that sent them a staggering 13 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

Mali: Mali will reform its national soccer authority and not be swayed by its suspension by FIFA, Minister of Sport Housseïni Amion Guindo said in an interview published yesterday.

Koke tapped in the third in the 77th to seal a third straight league win.
