[VIDEO PICK: Golazos] Bastian Schweinsteiger's great flick clinches the Bundesliga for Bayern Munich, Didier Drogba's hilarious volley drops out of the sky in Turkey and Eric Abidal gets a hero's welcome in Barcelona upon entering his first competitive game in 402 days.

Bayern's 1-0 win at Frankfurt Saturday reclaimed the Bundesliga from two-time defending champion Borussia Dortmund, clinching the title with six games remaining -- the earliest ever.

Schweinsteiger flicks home the cross from Philipp Lahm, combining to win more than a game …



Didier Drogba scored twice in Galatasaray’s 3-1 win on Saturday, and his first was hysterical.

See for yourself…



Finally, Alexis Sanchez and Cesc Fabregas combined for all five goals in Saturday’s 5-0 win over Mallorca but the loudest applause in Barcelona was reserved for Eric Abidal. The French defender came on for Gerard Pique in the 70th minute, entering his first game since his liver transplant over a year ago to a standing ovation.

“After a year of effort and hard work, the ovation is the best thing I could’ve had,” Abidal said.

    Calling Drogba's goal a volley is a stretch; it looked more like a bad trap...but it was worth watching!
