Regardless of results elsewhere, Bayern will be crowned Bundesliga champions on Saturday if they beat Frankfurt away from home. “We're determined to win the league there," declared Xherdan Shaqiri, although the Swiss starlet was also looking ahead to the Champions League clash with Juventus four days later: “It would give us a boost for the game in Turin."
The league title is tantalisingly close, but the imminent showdown with Juve means no-one at Bayern is contemplating a major celebration at this stage, as the prospect of glory in Europe and in the DFB Cup is still too real. Should FCB wrap up their 23rd championship at the Commerzbank Arena, “we'll hold a suitable party at a later date," announced Javi Martinez.
