Beckenbauer says Bayern's unstoppable

"The championship can only be taken away from Bayern if a meteorite hits Sabener Strasse [Bayern's training ground]," wrote former Bayern Munich star, coach and honory president, Franz Beckenbauer, in his column for Bild.

Bayern Munich, which has uncharacteristically gone two two years without a Bundesliga title, has a 17-point lead at the top of the standings with 11 games left. It has 60 points from 23 games and a goal difference of 55.

"This team never loses its touch," Beckenbauer wrote after last weekend's 6-1 win over Werder Bremen. "Although everything was decided at halftime [against Bremen], [Franck] Ribery, [Arjen] Robben and [Mario] Gomez wanted to score. Seldom have I seen such a hungry Bayern team."

In Champions League play, Bayern heads into the second leg of its round of 16 game with a 3-1 edge over Arsenal.

    Ha ha! Good one Jamie! I hope so; my Levante UD will be playing Rubin Kazan in the Europa League shortly (second leg in Moscow).
