BERLIN – Bayern Munich can secure themselves another first in a record-breaking campaign when they travel to Eintracht Frankfurt looking to clinch the Bundesliga title.

No other team has ever has been crowned champions with six games to spare but that will be the case if results go Bayern’s way this weekend.

They are currently 20 points clear of nearest challengers Borussia Dortmund and therefore a victory in Frankfurt would see them crowned German champions for a 23rd time.

Even if they do not manage a three-point haul at the Commerzbank-Arena, they would still win the title if Dortmund fail to beat struggling Augsburg at home.

Midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is hoping that will be the case, although the Switzerland international insists his side cannot afford to take fifth-placed Frankfurt lightly.

“We’re determined to win the league there. It would give us a boost for the game in Turin,” he said, referring to next Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League second leg against Juventus, where Bayern will defend a 2-0 lead.

While the title race looks done and dusted, the battle for the final Champions League berth looks certain to go to the wire. Bayern and Dortmund are on course to finish one-two, while Bayer Leverkusen can consolidate third place with a home win over Wolfsburg.
