In a shocking turn of events, Bayern Munich look like they will win the Bundesliga again this season. If certain results go their way this weekend, FC Bayern could be crowned as the champions-elect on Sunday.
The past week has been a roller coaster ride for FC Bayern. The week started with the incredible comeback victory over FC Porto in the Champions League. Then, the club received the terrible news that Holger Badstuber would be out for the remainder of the season after suffering another injury. The week was capped by Friday's Champions League draw that saw a tie set against Barcelona.
Bayern are currently 12 points ahead of second place Wolfsburg with five games to play. Here are your two scenarios for Bayern winning the league this weekend:
- If Wolfsburg tie their match, Bayern win the Bundesliga with a victory.
- If Wolfsburg lose their match, Bayern win the Bundesliga with a victory or a draw.
However, today's focus must be on the match against Hertha BSC. Bayern still are not back to full strength yet, and this is the busiest time of the season with the DFB Pokal semifinals against Dortmund week and the Champions League following up over the next two weeks with Bundesliga games sandwiched in between them.
Once the lineups are released, this thread will be updated.
