Bayern cruising toward Bundesliga title
Associated Press, March 6th, 2014 6:45PM

MOST COMMENTED

Lifting this year's Bundesliga crown is a mere formality for Bayern Munich, which visits Wolfsburg on Saturday. Second-place Borussia Dortmund is 20 points off the pace.

"Of course we're going to be champions," Bayern midfielder Toni Kroos said. "We still want to take each game seriously so we don't get into any rut with a view to the Champions League. Indeed it's difficult to flip the switch again."

Bayern is on a record 15-game winning run and unbeaten in a record 48 games. Its 20-point lead after 23 games is also a Bundesliga record.

Excitement will come at the other end of the standings where eight teams are fighting against relegation. Six of them meet on Saturday: VfB Stuttgart-Eintracht Braunschweig, Hamburger SV-Eintracht Frankfurt and Nuremberg-Werder Bremen. Dortmund will visit another relegation candidate, Freiburg, on Sunday. Hannover is the eighth team in trouble.
