Bayern Munich Could Wrap Up Bundesliga Title Tuesday

MOST COMMENTED

With a win against Hertha Berlin on Tuesday, reigning Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich can once again become the first team from a major European league to lock down its domestic league title, a feat that would be achieved even earlier than last year. Though there are eight games remaining in the German first division this season, Bayern currently holds a 23-point lead over second-place Borussia Dortmund, and a 24-point lead over third-place Schalke.

A Bayern draw at Hertha and a Schalke win at Dortmund would also be sufficient, as would a loss coupled with a draw between the second and third-place teams. In the end, it doesn’t really matter: the German title is definitely heading back to Munich.

Should Bayern win the title in its 27th game of the season on Tuesday, it would better the record set in 2013, when the Bavarian giant won after 28 games. The defending treble winner could also become the first team to go an entire season undefeated, provided it does not lose any of its remaining games.

“We’ve got to play well and win first,” coach Pep Guardiola reminded a news conference in Munich on Monday. “I’ll be very happy and proud the moment we win the title and if we win we’ll have to celebrate.” That being said, the former Barcelona coach said he does not plan to get involved in the obligatory beer showers following the final whistle. “I won’t stay on the field. I’ll be in the lokcer room,” he said.
