118 out of 120 points

The omens are good ahead of the home game against VfB Stuttgart: Over the past seven years the German champions have always won the match on the day the trophy is presented. And: Bayern are almost omnipotent on Saturday afternoons at the Allianz Arena. The Reds have amassed an incredible 118 out of 120 points in the last 40 fixtures at home kicking off at the traditional time of 3.30 pm CET.

Impressive record against VfB

FCB have won all of their last ten competitive encounters with VfB Stuttgart scoring 32 goals along the way. The last victory was a 2-1 win at VfB just before Christmas, achieved with a magical last-minute strike from Thiago. The last defeat in this fixture was a 2-1 reverse in Munich in March 2010.

Mayor Reiter receives the champions

The first highlight in office for Munich's new mayor Dieter Reiter awaits. The city's political boss will welcome his favourite club to the champions' party on Saturday night with the FC Bayern squad appearing on the Town Hall balcony on Marienplatz. “I'm doubly happy: As a Bayern fan and, of course, as Munich's mayor who is proud to be able to congratulate a Munich club winning the German league title for a twenty-fourth time,” said the 55-year-old politician.

Dankert: The man in the middle

The final league match of the season will be refereed by Bastian Dankert from Rostock. It will be the second time in the current campaign the 33-year-old sports scientist has taken charge of a game involving the reigning and new champions of Germany. Dankert presided over the 1-0 home win against VfL Wolfsburg in September 2013. Markus Häcker and Rene Rohde are the assistant referees and Thorsten Schriever is the fourth official.
