Bayern Eyes Juve, Bundesliga History

MOST COMMENTED

Bayern Munich could become the first German team in history to clinch the Bundesliga crown in March if it beats Hamburg at home and Borussia Dortmund fails to win away to Stuttgart this weekend. Regardless, it is only a matter of time before the Bavarian giant clinches its 23rd German championship, as it sits a whopping 20 points clear of second-place Dortmund in the Bundesliga table.

With the league title a near certainty, Bayern players say they are more focused on Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League quarterfinal first leg against Italian champion Juventus. "We want a good result against Hamburg ahead of the Juve game," goalkeeper Manuel Neuer told Kicker. Midfielder Toni Kroos added: "In the past, I have also said I want to win the league as early as possible, but we want to get a good feeling for Tuesday."

However, Bayern general manager Matthias Sammer has urged the players to keep their focus. "Recently, our performances have been too shaky, but the results were good if you leave out the Arsenal game,” he told Bild. "You cannot play at top level for a whole season - that is human. But ever since the Dortmund cup match, 2 percent or 3 percent has been missing from the game that has distinguished us.”
