It hasn’t been a vintage season for Bayern Munich but they should still be able to clinch their seventh Bundesliga title in a row this weekend.
Their goal difference is so good that a point would almost certainly be enough to confirm top spot but Bayern, who missed the chance to wrap up the title last weekend when they drew 0-0 at RB Leipzig, can defeat Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.
Europa League semi-finalists Frankfurt, who have prospered this season following Niko Kovac’s decision to leave them and become Bayern’s head coach last summer, can still earn a Champions League spot, although a poor recent run has lessened that possibility.
They have picked up just two points from their last five matches and suffered a 6-1 drubbing at Bayer Leverkusen a fortnight ago. Leipzig will definitely finish third but Borussia Monchengladbach and Leverkusen are level on points heading into the final round of fixtures.
Leverkusen look set to snatch fourth spot as they are in great form, taking 13 points from their last five games, and they visit a mid-table Hertha Berlin side that have nothing to play for.
In contrast, Monchengladbach entertain a Dortmund team that still harbours outside hopes of clinching their first title since 2011/12.
Lucien Favre’s side led the table at the halfway point of the campaign but have only managed to win seven of their last 14 games and were thumped 5-0 by Bayern last month. They look to have wasted a great chance to capitalise on a season of transition for Bayern and seem certain to have to settle for second place.
At the wrong end of the table, Stuttgart’s recent improvement hasn’t been enough to see them move out of the relegation play-off position, while Hannover and Nurnberg will be playing in the second tier of German football in 2019/20.
