FCB about to seal next title on the road
FC Bayern are likely to claim their next German championship title on the road. A victory in Saturday's match away to FC Augsburg would mean the German record champions seal a sixth consecutive championship title with five matchdays to go.
A championship decider on the road would be anything but a first for the men from Munich, who have claimed ten of their last 11 Bundesliga titles on foreign soil. The only exception was the 1-0 home victory over Hertha Berlin in the 2014/15 season. Bayern claimed the title "on the sofa" when VfL Wolfsburg lost away to Gladbach the next day.
Last championship title in Munich 18 years ago
The last time Munich claimed the title in front of their own fans dates back to the 1999/2000 season, when they hoisted the shield on Matchday 34 after a 3-1 victory over Werder Bremen, benefiting from Bayer Leverkusen's defeat away to Unterhaching. The Bavarians have not claimed a Bundesliga title at home since then, and they have yet to seal the title at the Allianz Arena, which was inaugurated in 2005.
After the legendary last-minute decider away to Hamburger SV in 2001, Bayern have clinched the title three times in Wolfsburg (2003, 2008, 2017) and two times in Kaiserslautern (2005, 2006) and in Berlin (2010, 2014). In the 2012/13 treble season they wrapped up the title in Frankfurt, two years ago Bayern celebrated in Ingolstadt on Matchday 33.
If FC Bayern win Saturday's match Augsburg will be the venue of the next decider. fcbayern.com has compiled a list of all championship deciders in favour of FCB since 2000.
