This is it. After a thirty four game season that began way back in August, the 2015-2016 Bundesliga season will come to an end on Saturday. Once again, despite the efforts of everyone else, Bayern Munich are champions of the Bundesliga.
The celebrations will begin on the field at the Allianz Arena. However, before Bayern can party, they do have a game to play. In one of only a couple of games that mean nothing table-wise on Saturday, FC bayern invite Mainz 05 to Munich. With neither team having anything to play for in this one, it's hard to imagine Bayern not figuring out how to get a victory here to start the celebrations off right.
The streak of bad results needs to com to an end before next season. Bayern have only won one of their last six matches, and that came in the Champions League against Barcelona (They still lost the tie.). Pep Guardiola and company would really like to head into the championship celebrations with a win under their belt.
FC Bayern are German champions for the 25th time. Enjoy the match.
Once the lineups are released, this thread will be updated.
