Bayern Munich win Bundesliga with six games left

Latest update : 2013-04-06

Bayern Munich beat Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 on Saturday to become champions of the Bundesliga, German football’s top flight, with a record six games left to play.

Bayern Munich claimed another Bundesliga best on Saturday with the fastest-ever title win.

Victory at Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday gave Munich their 23rd German league title after 28 matches and saw Bayern better their own record from 1972-73 and 2002-03, when they won the title with 30 out of 34 matches played.

This season they have already set the record for the most consecutive wins at the start of the season -- after winning their first eight matches -- and the fewest goals conceded after 21 matches.

More records have either been broken or are set to follow, with Bayern having won the Bundesliga for the 22nd time since the modern national league started in 1963.

Having accrued 75 points with six games left, they are on course to smash Dortmund's record of 81 points in a Bundesliga season, set just a year ago.

Undefeated away from home in the league this season, they are set to equal their own record from the 1986-87 season, when they went through an entire Bundesliga campaign without losing on the road.

With 13 wins on their travels, they have claimed the record for the most away wins and, having conceded just 13 goals all season, 'keeper Manuel Neuer is set to break Oliver Kahn's record of letting in just 21 goals in the 2007-08 season.

Having secured their 24th win of the season at Frankfurt, Bayern are also just one short of the record tally, held by both Borussia Dortmund in 2011-12 and Bayern in 1972-73, of 25 wins in a season.

Helped by their 9-2 hammering of Hamburg at home last Saturday, they boast a goal difference of 66, two better than the 64 set by Gerd Mueller's Bayern in the 1972-73 season.

With 79 goals to their credit, they are still some way short of the 101 goals scored by Mueller's Bayern in 1971-72.

But the biggest record of all is the one Bayern covet most: to become the first German team to win the treble of Champions League, domestic league and cup.

They head to Turin on Wednesday for the Champions League quarter-final, second leg against Juventus, with a 2-0 goal lead after Tuesday's first leg in Munich.
