Bayern approach the run-in to the end of the season with the declared goal of three wins in their last three matches. Prior to the cup final against Dortmund and the Champions League showdown with Chelsea in one and two weeks respectively, Munich travel to FC Köln on Saturday (Live in English from 3.30 pm on FCB.tv Web Radio), determined to contest the Bundesliga campaign “cleanly and properly through to the end," as Mario Gomez said, “so we're taking it 100 percent seriously and with total commitment."
There is indeed plenty at stake, at least for the men from Cologne, who have not won in eight but will definitely cling onto 16th spot should they beat Bayern. If not, Hertha Berlin could claim the relegation play-off spot by beating Hoffenheim at home, leapfrogging Köln and sending the Rhineland side down to the second division. “For Köln it's about survival, so they'll come out and fight accordingly," reflected David Alaba.
