Schweinsteiger: We're aiming very high

Before and throughout the 2012/13 season, Bayern's absolute priority and major target has been to win a 23rd German league championship. That dream could become reality at around 8.15 pm on Easter Saturday, earlier in a Bundesliga campaign or a season than ever before. “It would be just great," declared Xherdan Shaqiri on Thursday, although the Swiss starlet remained completely on message: “Unfortunately, there won't be much room for celebrations." There's a good reason for that: just 72 hours after Bayern entertain Hamburg, Juventus visit the Allianz Arena in the Champions League, “and Juve are one of the best teams in Europe," warned Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Immediately after the HSV clash, FCB will have to turn their undivided attention to Tuesday's showdown, whether or not the domestic title returns to Munich on Saturday. “We're aiming very high," continued Schweinsteiger, “and we'll need total focus for that." Bayern are entering a phase “which will settle a number of things," said the vice captain, “once again, we have to be looking to perfect our game."
