FCB aim to maintain streak and retain crown
FC Bayern are Bundesliga leaders ahead of the finale against Eintracht Frankfurt, and in all probability they need only one more point to defend their perch against pursuers Borussia Dortmund. Bayern have 75 points and a goal difference of +52, whereas the Ruhr valley outfit have 73 points and a goal difference of +35. Since the introduction of three points for a win, the leaders have only once been toppled from their perch on the last matchday. Bayer Leverkusen lost 2-0 away to Unterhaching in the 1999/2000 season, losing the lead to FC Bayern. fcbayern.com has collected more facts and stats in the build-up to the match.
The German record champions boast a strong record on Matchday 34. They have won 13 of their last 15 games on the last matchday, losing only one match, a 4-1 reverse against VfB Stuttgart last year, when Bayern had long wrapped up the championship title.
Impressive home streak
A home defeat like in May 2018 seems unlikely in light of Bayern's current form. The men from Munich have won all of their last ten Bundesliga matches at the Allianz Arena. Besides, Bayern have won 38 Bundesliga home matches against Eintracht, more than against any other side.
Unbeaten in nine years
FC Bayern have lost none of their last 15 Bundesliga matches against Frankfurt, winning 12 and drawing three. The overall record in the Bundesliga clearly favours the Bavarians. Bayern have won 52 of the 95 encounters, losing only 21 and drawing 22, with a goal difference of 186 scored and 113 conceded. SGE have lost more matches and conceded more goals against Bayern than against any other Bundesliga side.
Lewandowski aims to retain two crowns
Besides the championship title, Robert Lewandowski aims to retain the top scorer trophy. The Poland captain has 22 goals under his belt, four clear of Dortmund's Paco Alcácer, so he stands a good chance of becoming the first player since Ulf Kirsten (1997 and 1998) to retain the top scorer trophy.
